How to use
Maintenance: If the matting become soiled, they may be washed using warm water and mild detergent.
Cutting: the matting can be cut with scissors.
Greenhouse watering: In the greenhouse the surface of the bench should be covered with a sheet of polythene before the matting is laid out. The bench should be reasonably level. Any slope must not have a fall of more than 5cm. The matting should be covered with the permeable cover which will prevent root penetration, reduces evaporation and keeps the matting clean. A water reservoir may be installed at a slightly lower level than the bench, no more than 7.5cm below the level of the matting. A small strip of the matting about 7.5 cm wide may be used as a wick to feed the matting.
Holiday watering: For holiday watering of houseplants set up a piece of matting on, for example the draining board fed via a matting wick from a reservoir in sink. The soil in the pots and the matting should be thoroughly wetted for the capillary action to take effect.
