If you have clay, you need it today!
Here in the Lowcountry, gardeners run into problems with mucky clay soil - a LOT. If you are having trouble getting plants to thrive in your garden beds or are struggling with brown patches in your lawn, unloosened clay soil or salt damage may be the culprit! Before throwing in the towel and assuming you have a brown thumb, consider this:
The health of your lawn and garden is only as good as the foundation on which it is built. This foundation in garden terms is, you guessed it - SOIL!
If you have poorly draining clay soil or conditions in which the soil has lost nutrients over time, Espoma's Garden Gypsum will help condition your soil and bring it back up to snuff! And snuff is where roots begin to thrive, leading to healthier top growth for all of your plants, shrubs, and trees - and your lawn!
Espoma Garden Gypsum - Quick Facts
What? Espoma Garden Gypsum is an all organic, soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate in an easy to apply, pelletized form. Gypsum can be applied any time during the growing season.
Why? Helps loosen clay soils and minimize salt damage, promoting healthy root growth. Heavy clay surrounding a plant's root ball can prevent drainage which can cause the plant to drown.
Who/Where? Owners of properties from West Ashley to Mount Pleasant - or any location with heavy clay soil - will greatly benefit from treating their flower beds, vegetable gardens, and lawns with Espoma Garden Gypsum.
