A Low Phosphorous 21n 1p 11k Fertiliser Tablet specifically designed for Planting Native Trees. 10kg re-usable tub, 500 x 20g tablets. Made in Australia.

These compact, easy to use fertilizer tablets eliminate the need for measuring small quantities of dry materials and provide a safe, scientifically complete plant food which provides a plant growth response for up to two years. Planting Tablets fill the continuing need of all plants for a full range of nutrients. During the first year of establishment, the demand for plant food is not great in terms of total nutrients but continuous availability is critical for the development of healthy roots and vigorous top growth.

Special Advantages:

  • Safe, easy to handle, convenient.

  • Planting Tablets provide a plant growth response for one year in warm climates. This reduces labour and materials for reapplications.

  • The simplicity of pre-measured tablets insures uniform and adequate fertilization.

  • Supervisory time is reduced. Count and placement of tablets can easily be verified by inspection after installation.

  • Root zone placement eliminates feeding surface rooted weeds and grass. No surface residue to wash away.

  • Leach-resistant properties of tablet protect underground water from pollution.

The nutrients are released by soil moisture and microbial activity. Throughout the life of the tablet it supplies food and energy to beneficial soil micro-organisms. The micro-organisms gently and gradually release nutrients back into the soil in a form that the plant can absorb.

For young plants, simply punch the holes & place the Typhoon® tablets ½ way up the side of the root ball, hard against the roots. It is important to note that Typhoon® will not burn when the tablets are placed in direct contact with the roots.

For established trees, punch the holes along the drip line to a depth of 80-100mm. The number of tablets required to be applied will depend on the size of the Typhoon® tablets, tree age & nutrient demand of the specific plant. For more information, please contact us.

Safe, Non burning, Resists Leaching
The nature of Typhoon tablets means that they are an extremely safe way to fertilise plants. The tablet remains in place, even in porous soils. The tablet breaks down into a powder and this powder locks onto soil particles until it is released to the plant by microbial action. This minimises losses, even in sandy soils.

Stock Control & Pricing Breaks

Our webstore now indicates an approximate level of items in stock. This is indicated as quantity breaks as follows: 1+, 6+, 12+, 36+, 100+, 250+, 500+, 1000+, 2000+ and 3000+. For example: if we have 5 ARS Florist Scissors in stock this would display as 1+ — if there are 47 in stock it will indicate 36+. As another example: if we have 14,960 Fluted Tree Guards in stock this would indicate as 3000+. The quantity also indicates the number of items as described by the product description; so Florist Scissors are sold individually whereas the 10L Carton Tree Guard is sold in boxes of 150 – in the later case 100+ items refers to 100+ boxes of 150 (or over 15,000 Carton Tree Guards in stock).

Please note: our webstore stock levels are accurate to within the last hour; if you order an item that has since sold out, we will promptly notify you as to when your order will be fulfilled. Some items may be indicated as Special Order items or display a custom message as to when stock is due.

Pricing breaks: many items in our store display pricing breaks. The number of items indicated in pricing breaks can vary a lot between different products. Often with horticulture tools such as secatuers and loppers, the pricing breaks may relate to the number of items in a box or total number of items in a carton; so if you need several secateurs, and order per box or carton, you save more as we save time packing your order. Items such as tree guards, bamboo canes and hardwood stakes often have price breaks set to fill a standard palette size; thus savings or efficiency gains are made in the storage and transport of these items.
