Top Horticulture Tips
As one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of quality water and fertilise wise products, we've put together the following tips to help you get the best from your products and plants.
- Plan, prepare and plant water-wise local plants.
- Hydrozone your garden - group plants with similar water requirements together.
- Use soil improving products such as Baileys Soil Improver and wetting agents such as Baileys Grosorb to make sure your plants get off to a great start.
- Use high quality Baileys Water Saving Mulch to reduce water application, evaporation and nutrient loss.
- Only apply lawn and garden fertiliser when it is needed and only use per the recommended rate as displayed on the packaging.
- Fertilise 'little but often' - Feed plants small amounts of nutrients regularly as they only absorb small amounts at a time. Excess plant food can leach into groundwater, streams and drains and end up in our rivers causing algal blooms.
- Select the most appropriate lawn and garden fertiliser for your soil and plant type and apply to coincide with its growing cycle. Contact us if you are unsure.
- Water lawn and garden fertilisers in after application, but do not apply more than 10mm of water thereafter to ensure nutrients stay within the root system. Over watering flushes water past roots and into the groundwater system. Follow the WA Water Corporation’s recommended watering regime.
- Use Baileys Grosorb soil wetter to encourage effective water infiltration.
