Broadleaf P4 Water Retention Granules

Product Code: 100FE5002-pro

Broadleaf P4 Water Retention Granules is a set of water-retaining polymer granules, which absorb large amounts of water, absorb hundreds of times its own weight of water, forming a gel and acting as a reservoir in the soil. When the granules come into contact with water they absorb it, swelling to form discrete particles of water-charged gel. Incorporated into soil (or compost) the polymer granules act as thousands of tiny reservoirs of "contained" rain or irrigation water. Plant roots colonise these reservoirs of water-charged gel and can extract over 95% of the stored water as required, over an extended period of time. Broadleaf P4 is inert, safe for all plant species in all types of growing media and is non-contaminating; is durable in most growing conditions, giving years of environmental benefit; Broadleaf P4 Water Retention Granules Application Rate: We recommend an application rate of 2 grams per bareroot plant or equally you could work on 1 gram of granules to be mixed in with 1 litre of compost or soil Broadleaf P4 Water Retention Granules Instructions:

Broadleaf P4 Water Retention Granules Instructions:

  • Put your compost / soil into a container and sprinkle the required amount of Broadleaf P4 granules on the top
  • Make sure your hands are very dry (or wear dry gloves) and mix the P4 into the compost so it is evenly spread
  • Put your compost/P4 mix into whatever you are planting into.. prepared whole in the ground or a container.., but do not plant anything yet
  • If it is a container ensure there is a sufficient gap at the top to allow for the P4 to swell to avoid an overflow
  • Water the compost to capacity and leave for an hour or so. Top up with more water to make sure the granules are fully hydrated
  • Plant your seeds or plants as normal
  • You can now safely relax - the need to water is usually reduced around 75% , so once or twice a week is often sufficient
  • Keep an eye on your plants and water whenever they show signs of wilting
