Medium_aussie_boomer One Aussie Boomer struggling to grow

I planted 7 Aussie Boomer in September last year and 1 of them is struggling to grow. They are all in the same garden bed getting watered every 2-3 days depending on the weather. Can you provide advice? The photo shows one that has grown (left) and the one that isn't growing (right).

Answer: Hi Craig,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Some plants although they are provided the same conditions will still grow at their own rates. Some can take longer to settle in to their new home than the others which is why the growth is slightly different.

As there is some new growth on the smaller plant, it is a good sign that it will start to push more growth soon.

To assist with its growth, check that the water is absorbing well into the soil and apply some Yates Waterwise Soil Wetter to further assist with the water absorption. Give the plants a regular feed with Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser to further assist with their growth and development.

Kind regards
