How it works

  • Scotts Everydrop granules contain a wetting agent, also known as a surfactant, that breaks the surface tension of soils and potting mixes, allowing water and soluble nutrients to soak deep down to the root zone where plants need them most.
  • It works immediately so watering, rainfall and liquid feeding are more effective, even in hard-to-wet sandy, clay or compacted soils and potting mixes.
  • Scotts Everydrop has a sustained, slow release wetting agent that's effective for up to 6 months, and is the choice of leading professional growers.

How to use

  • Sprinkle Scotts Everydrop granules over garden soil and lawns
  • Water in thoroughly to initiate the wetting agent process
