Always apply a wetting agent to the soil and activate by watering in well. If pots are small submerge the whole pot is a solution of wetting agent until the air bubbles stop rising to the soil surface. Remove and drain. Reapply throughout summer months.
Mulch large areas of bare soil with gravel or stones to reduce evaporation and moisture loss.
Place in a sunny position through summer where the pot is protected from the direct sun.
When hand watering plants apply water slowly, so the water has a chance to soak through to the plants roots rather than running down the inside of the pot and out through the drainage hole.
In the spirit of reconciliation Seasol International acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects where we live work and grow, and across all Seasol International locations to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
