5 Handy Tips to improve your garden with Seasol

1. Establishing new plants

If you want to give new plants the best start in life, either soak them in bucket of Seasol before planting or give them a good dose of Seasol after planting and throughout the growing season. It helps to reduce transplant shock by promoting bigger, stronger, healthier roots. It also stimulates the growth of beneficial soil micro-organisms which create a rich, living soil. Seasol treated plants establish quicker and grow up to be strong and healthy.

2. Heat and Drought Tolerance

A regular application of Seasol creates tougher, healthier plants that are more resilient to heat and drought. It helps plants to establish, grow, fruit and maintain better plant health when facing hot, dry conditions. Seasol treated plants also take a lot longer to wilt in the heat.

3. Moving plants

If you are changing things around in the garden or moving an established plant and you want the best chance of success, make sure you have a bottle of Seasol handy. Seasol helps to ease plants into their new home by reducing transplant shock and re-establishing a strong healthy root system.

4. Overall plant health

Seasol is a complete garden health treatment. It stimulates strong healthy root growth, promotes vigorous flowering and fruiting and encourages beneficial soil micro-organisms to flourish. It also helps to increase nutrient uptake, so when fertilisers are applied they are much more effective. Healthy plants are more able to cope with the stresses like heat, drought, frost, pest and disease, so a Seasol garden is a healthy garden.

5. Frost protection

You can help to protect plants from frost damage with Seasol. With regular use Seasol lowers the temperature at which plant cells freeze, so Seasol treated plants stand up better to frosty conditions! Apply it to the garden every two weeks at least two months before a frost.
