Please ensure you have read and understood all label directions before using the product, for best results.

Getting organic matter into the soil will be key longer term. So, additionally turning in some compost now and then topping up with Dynamic Lifter and organic mulch seasonally should help to achieve this.

You might also consider using a soil wetter from our range to water the new plants in. Consider Yates Water Wise Soil Wetter Hose On. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.
