How to Use

  1. Determine the amount of Gypsum needed based on the following recommendations: 2 cups per 25L of medium or 1 cup per plant for mid-cycle calcium issues.
  2. Choose the desired application method: top-dressing, mixing into the soil, or dissolving in water for immediate nutrient availability.

What is Gypsum used for in gardening?

Gypsum is used to improve soil structure, increase water infiltration, enhance crop flavours and aromas, and provide plants with essential nutrients like Calcium and Sulfur. It also helps prevent and correct soil sodicity, reduce surface crusting, and facilitate nutrient transportation within the plant.

How often should I apply Gypsum to my garden?

The frequency of Gypsum application depends on your soil's specific needs and deficiencies. In general, incorporating Gypsum once or twice a year should be sufficient for most gardens. However, you can use Gypsum more often if needed to rectify specific issues like calcium deficiency, soil sodicity, or poor water infiltration.

Is Gypsum safe for all types of plants?

Gypsum can benefit a wide range of plants by providing essential nutrients and improving soil conditions. However, it's essential to monitor your plants' health and adapt Gypsum application rates according to their specific requirements. If you have concerns or doubts about using Gypsum for a particular plant, consult a gardening expert or plant care guide for specific advice.

Can I use Gypsum in my vegetable garden?

Yes, Gypsum is an excellent addition to vegetable gardens as it improves soil structure and enhances the flavour and aroma of crops. Additionally, it provides plants with essential nutrients like Calcium and Sulfur, contributing to healthier plant growth and increased yields.

Can Gypsum be used to treat clay or compacted soil?

Yes, Gypsum can help treat clay or compacted soils by loosening the soil and improving its structure. This allows for better water infiltration and aeration, promoting healthier root growth and overall plant health. When amending clay or compacted soils, it's essential to incorporate Gypsum thoroughly into the soil for best results.

How long does it take for Gypsum to improve soil conditions?

Gypsum begins to work as soon as it dissolves and becomes available to plants in the soil. Typically, you can expect to see noticeable improvements in soil structure and plant growth within a few weeks to a few months after application, depending on factors like soil type, weather conditions, and existing soil nutrient levels.
