Slow release Fertiliser

Slow release Fertiliser | Bamboo Giant

With each order we send out we include a complimentary slow release fertiliser. This fertiliser is a high nitrogen blend which will really help to boost the growth of you new bamboo whether planted in the ground or in a planter. The slow release will last for 5 months which is enough nutrition to last the entire growing season. So we've taken care of the food this year, you just need to take care of the watering.

To apply simply pour a tablespoon(ish) on the soil surface in amongst the canes. Don't spread them, keep the fertiliser together, as when the granules get wet they stick together ensuring they won't scatter/blow away from the base of the bamboo.
