	This is another example of the terrible labelling of fertilisers.
The nursery, I am pretty sure(!), is not selling KO2.  They probably
label some of their fertilisers as containing a certain amount of "K2O".
In fact they contain _no_ K2O either, but they are stating the potassium
content as an equivalent percentage of "K2O", because (e.g.) K2SO4 can
be considered as being "K2O" and "SO3".  They even extend this to KCl.
If you post what the label on this stuff says, I may be able to help
a bit more.
