KATRINUS DELUXE pbr Lomandra longifolia
Roadsides: Viro-Tubes 50mm x 50mm x 90mm (Volume 130ml): After consultation with roads departments, we recommend planting Katrinus Deluxe at 6 Viro-Tubes per square metre in urban areas, and for rural roads, 4 Viro-Tubes per square metre. 85mm x 85mm x 100mm (410ml volume) square pots and 140mm diameter round pots (140mm deep) and (1.4lt volume): After consultation with roads departments, we recommend planting Katrinus Deluxe at 4 pots per square metre in urban areas, and for rural roads, 3 pots per square metre.
Garden rates: Mass planting, 6 to 9 per sqaure metre for full coverage. For specimen planting, plant 1 or 2 per square metre. (These low specimen planting rates are for where manual weed control is possible).
Weed control: Ronstar as per label as a pre-emergent. Fusilade as per label will selectively take out grass weeds. Eg: Kikuyu, summer grass etc. When spot spraying with Glyphosate (Roundup), ensure drift or overspray does not accidentally contact the Katrinus Deluxe. Do not spot spray on windy days. Please check label to see if you can use these chemicals in your region for this use.
Fungicides and other treatments: It is rare that Katrinus will need treatment, particularly if the planting instructions are followed, but just in case Mancozeb, Banrot etc can be used if leaf spot occurs (rare). This is more for high profile ornamental plantings etc, where any blemish must be controlled. If also in the unlikely event, Phytophora occurs, treat with Phosphetic acid, or use composted Teas, VAM, and other mycrorhysor as preventatives in highly prone areas. The best way to prevent Phytophora is to follow the correct planting instructions as outlined above, and use the plant in areas that do not have permanent wet feet.
