SBM Life Science – Consumers to feed to have a blooming patio this season

by | Apr 7, 2017 | News, Products | 0 comments


Easter is the perfect moment to plant pots and hanging baskets for vibrant blooms throughout the spring and summer.

To get the rewarding results they are hoping for, consumers need to remember to feed their plants.??A little regular feeding will encourage strong, healthy roots, lush greenery and vibrant blooms.

The team at SBM Life Science is encouraging retailers to help consumers get great results by highlighting the benefits of feeding. ?The potting compost in the container has the nutrients plants need for the first few weeks but once it is exhausted, watering alone is not enough for colourful, long-lasting blooms.

?Within our Baby Bio? and Phostrogen? ranges we have a solution for every type of gardener, whether they are happy to feed regularly or would prefer to keep things nice and simple with a slow release fertiliser.?

New this season is?Phostrogen? Slow Release Plant Food & Moisture Control.???A 2-in-1 product, it feeds and waters plants, helping them produce big, vibrant blooms.??Containing water storing crystals,?it absorbs 400 times its own weight in water, reducing the need for watering by 75%.??Lasting up to six months,?it releases the water and feed as the plants need, saving gardeners time and energy.

It?s incredibly easy to use; just mix Phostrogen? Slow Release Plant Food & Moisture Control in with the compost as you pot-up your containers and hanging baskets.

Baby Bio? Pour & Feed?is ideal for indoor and conservatory plants, as well as outdoor plants in pots, containers and hanging baskets.??It encourages vibrant blooms and bigger, greener leaves and it is enriched with seaweed.

Quick and easy to use, just pour the mixture directly around the plants.

With added seaweed extract,?Baby Bio? Outdoor Flowers & Shrubs?is a unique boosted plant food, which helps plants produce up to 70% more flowers compared to being unfed.

It?s great value: the 750ml bottle of concentrate makes up to 75 litres.

Phostrogen? Patio Plant Food?is ideal for planters, pots, tubs and hanging baskets.? With a great nutritional balance, it encourages vibrant colours and bountiful blooms all summer long.
