Enter your e-mail here to subscribe to Pegplant’s Post, an e-newsletter about gardening in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Each issue lists local gardening events, recently published gardening books, recipes, articles, and tips specific to this area. Pegplant’s Post always has a giveaway, an opportunity to win a free plant or gardening-related product. For the upcoming August 2021 Pegplant’s Post, the giveaway is one box of Osmocote® PotShots™.
Osmocote is a plant food and Osmocote PotShots are plant food nuggets that deliver a pre-measured blend of essential nutrients especially formulated for container grown plants and houseplants. Osmocote consists of homogenous granules covered with a slow-release coating. This coating ensures that the plant’s food is carefully released. The number of PotShots used depends on the container size. For each PotShot, position the nugget half-way between the container’s edge and the plant’s stem. Then push about 1 to 3 inches deep into the soil. Water as usual. The nutrients are released for about 6 months after application. One box of 25 nuggets can feed eight 3-gallon containers for 6 months. To be eligible for this giveaway you must be a Pegplant’s Post subscriber.
