Oceana is a new UK fertiliser brand that has emerged using the experience of someone who works in the hydroponics and agricultural fertiliser industry.
The Oceana brand offers a solid slow-release organic fertiliser pellet that is filled with a number of “extras” that should create a really healthy biosphere in the soil.
I was given a sample of Oceana Rootboost and Oceana Boost a year ago and placed some on the surface of some of my trees. I was shocked at the appearance of mycelium within a few days.

Root boost created a terrific amount of mycelium and fungal growth in the surface of my yamadori, within days of applying it during low temperatures in late February. The prescience of this bacterial and fungal growth within the soil mass is essential for many tree species.

As well as introducing a healthy organic element to your soil, Oceana has the crucial emzymes found in “cannazym” and “Rhizotonic”, that break down old roots and convert them to carbohydrates that the tree can then feed on, as well as aerating old compacted soils.

My personal experience of the product is limited to the samples I received in early spring last year. That the products contain a good selection of NPK every time the tree is watered is without doubt. Whether it created better growth or root development is difficult to tell (as with all types of fertiliser). But a mild, slow-release organic fertilser on your bonsai is widely accepted as essential to the development of your trees and can be augmented with other mild fertilisers over the course of the growing season.

Spread the pellets liberally over the surface of the soil every 4-6 weeks throughout the growing season.
