Please note that the manufacturer recently made improvements to this product. While the mats are now much thinner, they absorb twice as much water, which may lead to watering even less frequently!

Each pack contains 4 mats that are 7" square

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.
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.

Place these mats down in the growing medium at root level as you plant each basket, hayrack or planter. These mats soak up water as rapidly as Rain-Gel (granules)but provide a stable reservoir which the roots will actually grow into. Prepackaged Rain-Mats are designed to take the guesswork out of how much material to use. They fit nicely into standard size hanging baskets. They can reduce the need for watering as often.

The rain mats worked so well that I had to make sure I didn't OVER water! Never had that problem before. I'm planning on using them again this year.

I bought this since last year my baskets needed watering constantly. I hope it works. For the money it's worth a try.

I love the rain-mats. The plants have remained fresh looking for three weeks now. I also put strips of them down in the dirt in established hanging plants to hold more water. They are a miracle!

The rain mat definitely helps hold the moisture in hanging coco fiber and moss baskets which are known for drying out too fast


They worked well last year

I have purchased these mats for about 4 years and they have definitely helped my pots and baskets to retain much needed water.

I added the mats to the moss liners which I also purchased from Kinsman. After I put the moss liner in the basket, I added an aluminum cake pan (pierced with scissors) to the liner and then the mat. I added gardening soil and planted the basket. Then I soaked the basket in a large bucket. The liner expanded into ?plastic granules? - this makes sense if the granules hold moisture (I assume so). We have received adequate moisture so I will wait to see how often I need to water when rain stops.
