Aussie summers are known for their scorching temperatures, with very little rainfall. We can go inside to avoid the heat and put the air conditioner on, but for gardens there is often no escape and plants have to cope with high temperatures, heat and drought. Seasol is the ideal companion to help your garden survive through harsh conditions.
It is essential to act quickly once plants start to wilt. Try using a watering can or hose on a slow rain-type setting to deliver water at a steady rate, so moisture can soak deep into the root zone. The addition of Seasol to the watering can also help stressed plants to recover more quickly.
Try to move pots and hanging baskets into the shade on hot days to give them some relief from the sun. Black plastic pots and small containers are particularly susceptible to heat and drying out. If pots dry out, dip the whole container in a bucket of Seasol for a couple of hours to aid recovery. When the air bubbles stop you’ll know that the soil and root system is wet through. Applying Seasol regularly throughout the year will help your potted plants cope with Australian summers.
