    Product description

    TOPBUXUS GROW is a very fast-acting, professional basic fertiliser for Boxwood. It ensures strong plants with a deep green colour, without yellow leaves.

    TOPBUXUS GROW contains all the nutrients your Buxus needs, in the right proportions. Sprinkling extra lime is not necessary when you are using TOPBUXUS GROW

    Buxus need extra nutrition especially when they are producing new leaves and being trimmed regularly.
    Using TOPBUXUS GROW 6-8 weekly year round will ensure you get enough nutrients to you Buxus. Especially in the growing season these plant need a lot of nutrients that are quickly released (in contrast to the widely available slow-release fertilisers).

    The most beautiful plants with an intense deep green colour contain a high level of sulphur. In the past, sulphur was much more abundant in the air (delivered with more acidic rain). In TOPBUXUS GROW a considerable amount of sulphur has been included to make up for this deficiency.

    TOPBUXUS GROW is a pellet and should simply be sprinkled on the ground around the root zone of the plant. Do not sprinkle on the plant, as this can cause burning.

    Nutrient information

    Contains high amounts of Calcium, Magnesium, and Sulphur which are unique to Buxus health and greening, as well as a Nitrogen, Potassium and Phosphorus

    When to apply

    Apply TOPBUXUS Grow 6-8 yearly year round (which mirrors the budding cycle of the Buxus)

    Apply the fertiliser as new buds are being produced to boost growth. Also apply if plants are orange or red (When Buxus can't find nutrients in the soil, it will take it from itself)

    Apply late Autumn and through Winter to boost root growth over Winter for more density in Spring

    Guide is not worth the money. Includes basic information, a couple non-Australian items and is really a dollar a page. Expected more.
