HANGING BASKETS Excellent long-life water retention reduces drying out in summer months. Remember with hanging pot plants it is wise to water lightly and more often. This is due to many hanging pot designs being unable to sustain water during irrigation

HEALTHY, GREEN LAWN Scatter GreeNeem Coir o the lawn before a rain shower & lightly rake into the grass. The water retaining GreeNeem Coir keeps surface roots moist to create a healthy, green, drought resistant lawn

GARDEN ANNUALS Dig a handful of GreeNeem Coir around the roots of annuals - when planting out, double the amount for perennials. The compost retains moisture in summer conditions; slowly releases fertilizer and protects against many insect pests

VEGETABLES For lettuces and similar short life vegetables follow the instructions for annuals. For larger, long life vegetables, increase the amounts. GreeNeem Coir is widely used in Gro-bags

NOTE: In most cases there is no need to spray plants with harmful pesticides. GreeNeem Coir has its own systemic pesticide. Not only does in repel certain types of insects but it affects the insects reproductive system.
