Native Plant Establishment in the Late Summer

A variety of Oak trees planted in August 2009 at one-foot tall, stand between 10’ and 20’ tall. This study focuses on the success of planting in late summer providing ample moisture with TRWG-Z until the rainy season. This regimen provides a period for root growth and carbohydrate reserves so plants can survive through the following growing season.

Bob Tanem Loves DriWater

Bob Tanem, the World’s Happiest Gardner, welcomed Joe Paternoster from DriWater to his radio show on KSFO 560 AM Sunday morning. Bob was sure happy that he ran into DriWater’s exhibit booth at the Garden Writers conference in Tuscan, AZ. Bob had used DriWater many times in the past and wanted to see what was new.

Bobby and Joe discussed different uses of the technology and some worldwide projects where DriWater is being used to water trees.  Whether you are going on vacation and need someone to water your plants or establishing native trees in deserts to stabilize soils, DriWater’s slow release water is the perfect product for the job.

DriWater has been working with non profits to establish street trees in urban areas.  These projects are valuable to our communities and DriWater is ideal for these plantings. Providing water and nutrients during the initial establishment phase will ensure healthy trees for years to come.

Bob and Joe also discussed how DriWater is great for watering your Poinsettias during the holiday season. If you put two gel pacs on your poinsettia at Thanksgiving, your plant will be watered until Christmas. No more leaking, watering spills, wilting Poinsettias and then having to replace it before your holdiay guests arrive. It’s very convenient and easy to use.

DRiWATER Donated for 20 New Trees

Twenty new sidewalk trees will be planted along the 5200-5400 blocks of southern Claremont Avenue in Rockridge, Oakland, CA this month. The project is coordinated by Scenic Streets, the local volunteer group who landscaped the nearby highway ramps last year.

The new trees will be provided a steady supply of water from a sophisticated aqueous gel donated by DRiWATER of Santa Rosa. Scenic Streets volunteers will periodically fill upright underground pipes with the company’s biodegradable goo which slowly releases water to the tree’s root system over a period of weeks. The product is ideal for sites where using a garden hose isn’t convenient.
