Debco SaturAid 2.5L - perfect to re-hydrate soil/potting mix

SaturAid works by breaking up the surface tension of the soil. Also known as a surfactant, this product is extremely helpful when soil becomes hydrophobic. This can appear as water beading, repelling or running off quickly without soaking into the garden bed, soil or potting mix. This is a highly effective product which has been tested by University studies comparing different wetting agents which are on the market.
