Shrub Planting

For container grown plants, excavate a planting hole double the size of the root ball and incorporate dry SwellGel granules thoroughly into backfill mix.

Container size                     Amount                       Planting hole
Up to 5 litres                          1 scoop                        20cm x 20cm x 20cm
Up to 10 litres                        2 scoops                     25cm x 25cm x 25cm
Over 20 litres                        3 scoops                      30cm x 30cm x 30cm

After planting water well twice at 1 hour intervals to fully charge SwellGel granules.

Already established shrubs:
Place your garden fork about 15cm away from original planting position and push it into the ground as deep as it will go. Move backwards and forwards to create 4 holes around the root area. Repeat this process as many times as necessary (and maybe a second outer ring, if well established plants are to be treated). Pour ½ scoop of dry SwellGel granules down each hole followed by a small amount of water to wash the granules downward. Once all holes are treated apply sufficient water to ensure SwellGel granules are fully charged. Within a short period of time new plant roots will colonise the columns of SwellGel.

1 scoop = 5g
