There’s always a buzz this time of year about ways to conserve water as we head into the hot and dry summer months (but remember that there’s no such thing as global warning!) Aside from reducing the amount of water we use, the water-wise are turning to water-absorbing polymers as a way to reduce watering times by 50 to 80%. These jelly-like crystals start out small (like the size of rock salt) and absorb tremendous amounts of water… like a water-slupring sponge. The so-called Water Jelly Crystals hold water in the soil so it can be released to plants as they need it, and they can help reduce watering demands of plants by up to 80% in drought conditions. Learn more about the application rates and how to use the polymer in your garden or watch the video from television.
Anyone using the crystals either in class as an educational tool or in your garden?
