Garden Gurus Spring 2017 (Week 14) – Seasol Soil Wetter & Conditioner – Summer and Soil Care
Melissa King explains that when our gardens heat up, it’s important that the water we apply gets to where the plant needs it most – the root system.
When you are out watering your garden, do a simple test on your soil. Water your soil and you will probably notice that the top layer is wet, now dig down into the soil. Is it wet or dry?
If it is dry, then the soil has probably started to become hydrophobic, meaning it’s beginning to repel water. So water is probably rolling off the surface, not being absorbed, meaning that much needed water isn’t getting to where we really want it to.
This scenario is more common that you think and you can see it alot in certain types of soils and pots. A well water garden can actually be dry stressed.
Melissa explains the key is to act on it now, so if your soil is acting this way, then grab a bottle of Seasol Super Soil Wetter & Conditioner. It is much more than a soil wetter. It’s a wetting agent, which has been boosted with liquid compost and Seasol, so it’s the perfect product to apply just before summer.
The soil wetter helps to overcome water repellency in hard to wet soils, allowing water to soak deep within the root zone. It makes watering, rainfall and liquid feeding much more effective and lasts for months in the garden.
The built-in liquid compost conditions the soil, promoting good soil structure. It helps to increase the water holding capacity of soil and plant uptake of essential nutrients and it stimulate the growth of beneficial soil microbes.
Seasol provides a health treatment for every plant in the garden and gives the whole garden a much needed boost.
Seasol Super Soil Wetter & Conditioner is really easy to apply, you can mix it up in a watering can (50mL per 9 litres of water) for pots and smaller areas. Or use the hose-on pack for larger areas.
Just be sure to wash it off the foliage after you have applied it. All you need is one application every 3 to 6 months for soils and potting mixes, to help overcome water repellency and improve both your soil and plant health.
Seasol Super Soil Wetter & Conditioner helps make sure that your garden can make the most out of every drop of water.
