What it does
It rapidly breaks the hydrophobic crust allowing water penetration while also improving water holding capacity. Replaces gypsum, lime and dolomite. Restores essential elements, life, and energy.
Garden Mate is a fast acting clay breaker with no need to dig it in, just water. Improvements can be seen 2-3 weeks after proper application. Repeat initial application 4-6 weeks later and then lighter applications 3-4 monthly after that. Garden Mate creates softer soil and improves drainage, aeration and nutrient availability.
Binds sand particles together in sandy soils which reduces nutrient leaching and improves moisture availability.
Garden Mate increases the mineral content of the soil or plant media, improving the structure, moisture and nutrient cycling promoting a healthier, more robust root system and stronger thicker stem growth on all plants allowing them to search a larger area of soil for moisture and nutrients. This allows plants to withstand adverse conditions and continue to flourish for longer, no matter if the weather is wet or dry, hot or cold.
You will be surprised by the earthworm activity within the root zone due to the mineral and trace element content in Garden Mate. Earthworms love it and in turn will help to enhance nutrient availability in your soil.
Where and when to use it
Generally every 3 to 4 months. More often if necessary.
- Watering your garden and the water sits on top?
- Bending the prongs on your digging fork?
- Breaking the blade on your transplanting trowel?
- Watering your garden and the plants still wilt?
All of the above issues become a distant memory by using Garden Mate soil conditioner before, during and after preparation of your garden beds.
