Tui All Purpose Potting Mix is specially formulated to give the best start to your indoor and outdoor plants in pots, containers and hanging baskets.

 

 

Benefits

  • Contains SaturAid wetting agent to spread water evenly to the root zone and encourage rapid root development while preventing soil from becoming waterlogged.
  • 100% weed free.
  • Suitable for pots, containers and hanging baskets.
  • A six month controlled release fertiliser for sustained feeding.

Directions for use

Directions for potting plants:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  2. Half fill your container with Tui All Purpose Potting Mix.
  3. Gently take the plant from the current container, loosen the root ball and remove any loose or dead plant material and roots.
  4. Position the plant in the centre of the new container and fill with Tui All Purpose Potting Mix up to 3cm from the top.
  5. Gently firm potting mix around the base of the plant. The potting mix should be at the same level on the plant as it was in the previous container.
  6. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

Container plants should be regularly re-potted into containers of fresh potting mix.

If plants start shedding leaves and the root ball is dense, they should be re-potted into a larger container.

To check if your plant needs watering, gently press the surface of the mix. If it feels dry, water.

    Great product . Use quite a lot as we have a big garden . Plants grow well in this .

    Brent M

    A great product much better than others I have tried. Works for garden top up around plants that need a boost and in pots and veggie garden when planting I always add a few handfuls to give the plants a good start. Sprinkle over seeds when direct planting.

    SaturAid granular soil wetter is a unique and worthwhile addition to all gardens. It saves you time and money as it reduces water use by up to 50%.

    It is a granular soil wetter made from coir and other non toxic ingredients. When applied, it channels water to the root zone where it is needed most. SaturAid promotes even water distribution so there is less water run off and dry spots in potting mix and soils. It makes watering, rainfall and fertilisers more effective, even in sandy, clay or compacted soils.

    Apply SaturAid to all areas of the garden including indoor and outdoor pot plants, shrubs, garden beds and lawns. As SaturAid is made from eco-friendly materials it is safe to use in the vegetable garden. SaturAid will start working immediately.

    Note: SaturAid is not a water storing crystal. It is not a jelly like substance that holds water in the soil.

    My Pride of Place - Liz's Tiny Farmstead

    I’m Liz and I have a half acre backyard farm just north of Auckland. We originally were looking for more land when we purchased our property four years ago, but fell in love with this place when we saw it. While it did (and still does) have its challenges, we could see so much potential to transform it into a productive food space and to become more self-sufficient.
