Going into summer, you need to make sure that water is can penetrate your soil and get to where it’s needed.

  • Test for hydrophobic soil by pouring water on its surface. If it pools or runs off, it’s probably hydrophobic.
  • To treat hydrophobic soil, apply a soil wetter like Seasol Super Soil Wetter & Conditioner.
  • Seasol Super Soil Wetter increases the wettability of hard to wet soils, allowing the moisture to go deeper into the soil and retaining it around the root zone.
  • The highly active liquid compost promotes the development of good soil structure.
  • It stimulates the growth of beneficial soil microbes, which enhance the fertility and disease resistance of the soil.
  • For small areas, use the concentrate in a watering can. For large areas, use the hose-on pack.
  • Seasol Super Soil Wetter contains Seasol, so it’s great for building a healthy soil, improving plants’ resistance and helping their roots take off.
  • It’s a fast-acting liquid that goes to work immediately and can be applied to any soil type.
