Why use TerraCottem?

Helping with transplant shock of the mature grape vine. Insurance against hot dry periods by retaining moisture.

Installation Method Per plant. Blended with the backfill soil when planting.
Application Rate Standard Rates
Watering Method Dripper to plant
Watering Schedule  1-2 times per week, 16 litres
Did you achieve your goal with TerraCottem? Yes
Did you also plant trees/shrubs without TerraCottem (a control)?  No
What were the results of your work with TC on this site? How would you describe the plants/turf? The vines have excelled, no stress or shock, look like they have been there for years. The shrubs are also doing well, no
deaths at all.
Can you make a comparison with a similar application the previous / same season where you didn’t use TerraCottem? Difficult to say, we have planted Lomandras before in a roundabout without TerraCottem, and they are struggling. Vines
in the past have typically been slow to get going.
