Growing Aids

  • Polymer - an organic polymer designed to improve the capability of soils to hold water.  These crystals swell, absorbing 200 times their weight.  When added to soil or other potting media, plant roots grow through the polymers and extract stored water and nutrients as needed.  Directions are available.
  • Fertilizer Tablets - Combination of 20-10-5 and are a 10 gram tablet.  Use one per woody or herbaceous plant of 6 to 10 inches in height.  No additional plant food should be necessary for 2 years.  If you do not have an irrigation system, you may want to break up the tablet before placing in the ground.  
    These are sold in packages of 30, 50 or your specified count.  You can order the exact amount you want for $0.15 each.
  • Weed Barrier - allows water to penetrate but prevents weed growth.  UV resistant.
