Gel powder for hanging baskets

Hi - I always used to buy sachets of powder gel (in UK) that I had to mix with water to swell then mix with compost for hanging baskets, to keep them moist and cut down on watering. Has anybody ever come across this in CH. Thanks.

I think I saw them in the garden centre near us. I'll check next time I go. I may go tomorrow if we don't go to Pontarlier for coffee pods which we desperately need.

Brilliant BelgianMum- how about going to the garden centre first, then pop over to Pontarlier- ans stop by at our house. Cheeky me - but that would be perfect! lol. No worries it can wait- just great that you've found some, hurray. but we will be around all week-end, so you'd be very welcome.
