Daltons Premium Planter Tabs

Daltons Premium Planter Tabs are safe and easy-to-use complete fertiliser tablets that eliminate the need for complicated measuring. 

  • Safe, easy to handle and convenient.
  • Slow release fertilising for trees, shrubs, ground cover and containers.
  • Improved uptake of nutrients due to reduced leaching.
  • Feeds for up to 12 months.

Soil bacteria acting on the surface of the tablets gradually converts nutrients to a form that can be absorbed by the roots. The rate of conversion varies with the soil temperature, just as a plants requirement for nutrients varies each season.
