Why Use

Superphosphate has very high phosphorus content. This makes it ideal for encouraging strong root development. It also helps to move sugars and proteins around the plant so that fruits and vegetables ripen properly.

  • Encourages strong root development
  • Abundant, tastier crops

 

What to Expect

Plants will develop stronger roots and ripening of fruits and vegetables will be improved.

For best results: When planting out your trees and shrubs use a dedicated compost to give your plants the very best start.

When to Use

Apply every 4-6 weeks during the growing season from March to the end of August. For best results Superphosphate should be worked into the soil. During dry weather water before and after application.
