Answer: Hi Rob,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

If the plants are newly planted and showing sign of stress, it’s likely due to underwatering as the roots are yet well established. I would suggest improving watering daily and adding some liquid fertiliser. Try Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It’s certified for use in organic gardens, and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth. Click here for more info:
