Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:133 EcoTip: Moisture Granules are a polymer soil additive that helps conserve water by helping to hold more moisture in the soil. It is important that they be mixed into the soil well since they don’t help at the surface. This also helps insure that chlorine in the water has a chance to disapate before reaching the grannules. Chlorinated water has been reported to reduce their effectiveness.



 Additional Information

According to their Manufacturer: “Soil Moist polymer granular is a soil amendment designed to reduce plant waterings by 50%, reduce transplant shock and soil compaction, and will remain effective in the soil for 3-5 years. It is an inexpensive form of insurance for the plant and is environmentally friendly. Soil Moist saves time, labor and plant loss.”
