Vitax Q4 2.5kg

An outstanding general purpose fertiliser, supplied in easy to use, pelleted form, Vitax Q4 contains all the plant foods and trace elements essential for vigorous growth, abundant flowering and ripening of fruit.

It is very simple to use, scatter evenly over the surface of the soil, then lightly rake in. Typical application rates for fruit are as follows:

  • Apples, Pears, Plums and other top fruit:175g/m2 (5oz/sq yd).
  • Currants, Gooseberries and Raspberries:140g/m2 (4oz/sq yd).
  • Strawberries:70-100g/m2 (2-3oz/sq yd).

Vitax Q4 is also suitable for vegetables, roses, chrysanthemums, tomatoes and even lawns

Vitax Q4 is a compound fertiliser containing Magnesium with trace elements N:P:K 5.3:7.5:10.0 Mg3.0
Apply Vitax Q4 to the soil before planting soft fruits such as blackcurrants or strawberries. If you have planted any top fruit such as apples or pears, apply at the standard rate at the end of April. The nitrogen will promote good growth and the phosphate will promote good health root developement.


A 2.5kg box of Vitax Q4 is priced at £13.93 including delivery by courier on a 3-5 day service to a UK address.
