‘The best soil is made of a mixture of clay, sand and silt that avoid the extremes of clay or sandy soils and are fertile, well-drained and easily worked.’ Royal Horticultural Society.
Add Kaolin clay – the very best for gardens
Experiments at UWA have shown that Kaolin clay is the best for overcoming water repellency, and results are even better when silts are also added. Kaolin clay has a greater affinity to water , is readier to exchange nutrients with plants, and bonds more firmly with sand and organic matter. Kaolin increases the plant available water content of soil without
creating a water barrier. Kaolin clay in WA has a 10 times higher CEC(58 to 100) compared to the ‘standard’ Kaolin
clay from Georgia (4.8) and it’s P sorption is six times larger.
Kaolin clay has been shown in university and agricultural trials to be the very best for overcoming water repellency and creating a stable soil in gardens. Soil solver is friable and easy to blend with the sand in your garden. It saves water, fertiliers and keeps your soil moist for longer.

Soil Solver has ten times better results than other claying products
Trevor Cochrane published the results on the Greenfingers and Garden Guru’s facebook site about his recent trials using different clay products. The plants grown with Soil Solver at the very back, were 10 times the size of those grown with bentonite clay, zeolite and spongolite – the tiny seedlings in the front. The plants grown with Soil Solver had already fully grown and been eaten before the ones at the front have even grown very much.
This shows that it is not just water retention that needs improving, the clays also have to exchange nutrients and water readily with the plants – otherwise growth is suppressed.
Soil Solver balances the pH, the calcium to magnesium balance and the nutrients to make it almost foolproof to have a healthy garden.
