Dear Debbie,

I am assuming you have a clay soil and this is why you are applying Liquid Gypsum. The main reason for applying gypsum is to loosen and break up clay particles in the soil. It does not work instantly but has to be re-applied on a yearly basis for best results. Simply apply to the soil surface and water in thoroughly afterwards. It does not affect the pH of your soil and won't harm or burn existing plants. As gypsum does not contain any major plant nutrients, you will still need to add some well composted organic material and fertiliser such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Fertiliserto your soil. You can then safely plant into the soil.
