Our favourite plants can stay in their pots for a very long time, especially if they’re slow growing. We can choose the highest quality potting mix, but as time goes by the nutrients can be used up by the plant and the media loses it’s structure and goodness. If you don’t wish to continually re-pot (or simply can’t) then Seasol Potting Mix Booster is an exciting new addition to your garden shed!
What It Does:
🍃 Contains an ideal balance of nutrients and energy for beneficial soil microbes which can enhance the plants natural defence mechanism.
🍃 Provides a better environment for beneficial soil microbes in the protective coat, allowing them to multiply and gain strength using mineral nutrients as a food source.
🍃 Assists the retention of important nutrients in potting mix, which can help to prevent pests and diseases.
It can be used in both old and new potting mix. Simply mix Seasol Potting Mix Booster into the potting mix and water in thoroughly after application. Due to the microbes, do not apply any herbicides 8 days prior to or 8 days after application. Generally, Seasol Potting Mix Booster can be reapplied to potting mix every 3 to 4 months or as needed.
We added it to our Pelargonium Edna Walling Pop Up hanging baskets to give their floral display a much needed boost. The Potting Mix Booster is fine and crumbly, and easily applied by hand. A little tub goes a long way and treats up to 200 litres of potting mix.
Our handy tip for pots: Water often and well. Especially if your plant is in a terracotta or stone pot, it will dry out faster than if it was planted in the ground. When the soil gets too dry, the plant’s delicate feeder roots die back. Replacing those damaged roots requires energy that would normally go into leaf and flower production. Water deeply and thoroughly, and you can even cluster pots together to help protect from drying winds, increase ambient humidity levels and make watering easier.
Help restore, revitalise and extend the life of existing potting mix. Seasol Potting Mix Booster is a must have for any gardener!
