Where to use:
Chempak Formula 8 has a lower nitrogen content, but offers extra phosphate and potash, which matures growth and encourages a firm ripe finish to onions, leeks and other vegetables.

Use on: Alpines, delphiniums, sweet peas, bonsai, heathers, onions, cacti, lawns, leeks, conifers, orchids and runner beans.

How and when to use:

Normal Strength Use: Dissolve 2 level measures of crystals in 5 litres (approx.1 gallon) of water and apply to your plants every 7 to 10 days. Ensure the soil or compost is well moistened.

For more frequent use: Some gardeners prefer to use dilute feed more often. Dissolve 1 level measure in 10 litres of water and apply at every watering. At this strength this pack will make over 1,600 litres of plant food.

Professional tips:

  • Onions & Leeks: Feed weekly from early stages. Increase frequency to twice a week when fruiting to improve quality and yield.
  • Lawns: For an autumn lawn feed dissolve 4oz in 2 gallons of water and apply to 16 sq. yds from August onwards.
  • Ericaceous Plants: Use on any established lime-hating plants like Azalea, Rhododendron and Camellia. The trace elements will help prevent and cure chlorosis.
