My soil is very sandy what can I do to make it hold more water?
Perth’s soils hold very little water and are often hydrophobic (meaning they repel water) which can be a real problem when trying to get water deep to your plants roots. We would recommend that soil preparation take place before any planting. There is a product called soil solver, it is clay based with a mixed mineral and volcanic content, this product offers a one off application…you never have to apply it again! The product acts by giving water a surface to cling to, by doing so you remove hydrophobic conditions and allow water to get down to your plants roots. This saves water and reducing the need for frequent watering.
