Chempak Fertiliser No 4

  • From - £7.99
Why use this product? :
  • Eucalyptus grow extremely quickly, throwing out masses of foliage and branchlets with gay abandon, well into the later summer. They sort of forget to lay down scaffolding in their trunk and branches as they grow. In the nursery, we find that they don’t really lignify (get woody) until November, often after the first frosts and this late tender growth can get scorched. This is of particular concern if you are growing for cut foliage.
  • A readily available source of soluble potassium helps do many things for your Euc. It helps towards protecting against frost damage by encouraging your tree to produce and ripen (harden) woody material. Potassium is a very soluble salt that washes away from your soil very quickly. It needs replenishing on a regular basis.

Summary:
