As a soil conditioner, Daltons Garden Mix greatly assists in aerating heavy soils and improves drainage. In light or sandy soil, it improves water holding capacity and provides the aeration necessary for healthy root growth.

As a mulch, Daltons Garden Mix not only feeds plants, it helps to maintain moisture, provide warmth, encourage earthworms and prevent weeds.

Planting mix: Dig a hole to twice the size of the root ball, half fill with Daltons Garden Mix and mix with existing soil.

Planter Boxes: For large planter boxes with a minimum depth of 40cm. Fill container to 5cm below rim. Plant as normal. Water well after initial planting and water daily.
