Baileys Grosorb is a professional grade soil wetter, designed to correct water repellent (hydrophobic) soil conditions. Grosorb facilitates water absorption and retention to eliminate run-off, surface pooling and associated problems such as dry patch. As an organic based, granular product, it is safe and easy to apply.

Most Australian soils suffer from a hydrophobic condition, commonly referred to as ‘run-off’. This condition occurs naturally, but particularly in soils which are regularly worked and as gardens and lawns become more established. Similarly garden pots and planters are also affected. Baileys Grosorb is designed to correct this, breaking down the waxy barrier causing the problem and allowing water to rapidly soak through the soil.

The use of Grosorb will make the most of the water you apply, ensuring it is absorbed and not lost to the environment through evaporation and run-off. This in turn enables healthy plant growth and root development as water and applied nutrients are channelled into the root zone.
