Olive Feed 100ml

100ml Olive Feed Concentrate
A superior liquid feed for all types of olive trees. The feed should be diluted 1:100 and used about every three weeks throughout the growing season (i.e. spring to autumn), especially on plants being grown in pots. Plants given this feed respond within days and one of the reasons, I believe, they are so responsive is that in contains not only the usual major nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (N:P:K)), essential for plant, growth but also minor nutrients, trace elements, organic plant acids and seaweed extract. I use it on all my olive trees.
