    * Based on standard versus treated growing media

Improves water retention

Helps water disperse evenly into dry soils that repel water, allowing soil particles to absorb moisture down into the root zone

Promotes maximum rehydration

The better hydrated the soil, the stronger and deeper roots will be and the healthier the soil

Immediate action 100% non-toxic

Starts working immediately - re-apply monthly in dry periods

Totally safe and non-toxic to all plant types

Hose-on or Concentrate


The 1L Easy Spray bottle is perfect for small gardens, quick fertilising tasks and covers up to 150m2. No mess, no dribbles.


The 1L Concentrate is the better option for large or difficult to reach areas where a watering can or pump sprayer may be easier to use. It makes up to 300L, enough to cover 120m2

Handy Tip:
To determine the size of your garden, multiply the length x width in metres. 1 long stride = approx. 1 metre

Suitable for

Garden beds and lawns, including vegetable and herb gardens

Pots, planters, hanging baskets and other containers that dry out quickly

Safe to use around new plants - will not burn

How it works

  • Scotts Everydrop Soil Wetter liquids contain a wetting agent, also known as a surfactant, that breaks the water's surface tension, 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.

How to use

Easy Sprayer

  1. Shake the bottle well before attaching to the hose - ensure the thumb switch is in the OFF position first
  2. Tighten the hose connector on the handle prior to connecting the hose; turn the hose tap on
  3. Slide the thumb switch to the ON position to DISPERSE Soil Wetter or slide to the WATER position to just water your garden
  4. Walk slowly using a sweeping action to evenly distribute the spray over the measured garden area (the bottle should empty in approximately 17 minutes)
  5. When finished, switch to OFF position and turn the water off.

When using the Concentrate:

  1. The 1L Concentrate comes with a measuring cap that will dispense 30mL (one cap), the amount required for 9 litres of water to cover 5m2
  2. For pots, apply 500mL per 50cm diameter pot. Rinse off the foliage with fresh water, and apply only in the cool part of the day.
  3. The concentrate can also be used in a pump sprayer. Use the same dilution rate as for the watering can

For a complete guide on how to use Scotts Everydrop Soil Wetters, always check the packaging.

When to use

  1. For maximum penetration of garden beds, lawns and pots, apply Scotts Everydrop liquid before Summer and let natural rains water in.
  2. Re-apply every month during dry periods - when you see obvious areas where the soil is extremely dry or where water is not soaking in within a few minutes.
