Rain Gel Tub (1 Kilo)

Item Number: RTUB
2.2 LBS (1 Kilo) of Rail-Gel Granules.
Water Absorbing Granules and Mats for Planters
Granules, Prepacked Mats and Rolls from England
They hold moisture in the soil of hanging baskets and containers, so plants do not dry out as quickly, improving displays and growth even in dry conditions. You may only need to water every 7-10 days.
Adds Potassium - Not Sodium
Another advantage of Rain-Gel and Rain-Mats is that they slowly release small traces of potassium, unlike other products that release sodium (salt) which can adversely affect some plants.

"Rain-Gel" water retaining granules give much better performance than products that are sodium based. "Rain-Gel" and "Rain-Mat" products are potassium based and take up water in a few seconds, forming a fine textured jelly. This rapid uptake ensures much better performance within the soil and provides an immediate reservoir to plant roots. Quite simply, the "Rain-Gel" granules "grab" the water immediately, before it can drain through the potting mix (unlike other slow acting granules). Saturation can be achieved with one watering, instead of having to rewater several times. The roots are then able to draw water from the reservoir as and when needed.

Four (4) teaspoons of Rain-Gel mixed into the potting soil at root level is enough for a 12" hanging basket. Use additional teaspoons for larger baskets.

Love the rain granules product! Works so well with pots and other containers in summer so daily watering isn't required. Kinsman was thankfully responsive when part of the bucket I ordered leaked out during shipment. Replaced the bucket with prompt response!

Awesome Product

I used this product for the first time this winter in my outdoor wall & hanging baskets. I got tremendous results and it the baskets were easier to maintain and required much less watering as stated in the product guidelines. The baskets remained beautiful all season long. I just bought another tub to use in my summer plantings.
