Spring Day on 1 September is the official celebration of the end of winter. With the promise of warmer days to come, many gardeners are eager to get out into the sunshine and fresh air and are already contemplating what to plant.
With gardening activities marking the end of one season and the beginning of another, it is important to ensure that the soil in your garden is ready for renewal. Grolite® from Pratley is the ideal horticultural perlite-based growing medium to boost fertiliser efficiency. This, in turn, promotes plant health and growth, resulting in a bountiful garden in no time at all.
Looking at vegetables, this is the ideal time for cucumbers, beets, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, beans, and broccoli. In terms of flowers, Spring is a perfect start for azaleas, hostas, hydrangeas, day lilies, chrysanthemums, daffodils, and Black-eyed Susans.
“Grolite® promotes many things that your plants require to grow strong and healthy this Spring,” says Pratley Marketing Director Eldon Kruger. This unique, naturally occurring perlite-based mineral has tiny micropores on the surface of its particles to capture nutrients and water molecules.
The capillary action occurring in the voids between the particles ensures uniform distribution of water and nutrients, resulting in consistent growth and adequate water drainage. Grolite® maintains optimal soil aeration, a critical factor to ensure sufficient oxygen supply to the root systems.
Grolite® is available nationwide in various grade sizes to cater for specific blends. “Pratley experts are always on hand to discuss specific customer requirements, or to respond to any queries,” Kruger concludes.
