One way to save water in the garden is by using the latest technology in water storage granules for thriving plants.

Trevor's Tips and Facts

  • Water granules come in tiny jars from your local garden centre and when you place them in a bucket with water they expand into water crystals.
  • You can use about a handful in a planting hole, to suck up 100 of times their weight in water and store it around the root zone of your plants.
  • This ensures plants are always moist for best growth saving you heaps of water.
