  • Wetting Agent - Ensures nutrients get to the root zone
  • Trace Elements - Micro-nutrients vital to plant growth
  • Calcium - Supports nutrient uptake and stronger plant cells

  • Materials used in the production of Debco potting mixes are sourced from renewable and sustainable resources where possible



  • Designed for the traditional shallow pots used to grow Bonsai and plant species commonly grown in traditional shallow pots.


Debco Bonsai Potting Mix is ready to use straight from the bag with no further additives required. Close the bag tightly after use

  1. Carefully remove your tree from the container and remove the old soil from the roots. If the roots have grown into a solid mass, carefully tease them out and prune them using pruning shears. If necessary trim up to 30% of the roots, making sure the remaining roots will fit into the shape of the new container or pot. Pruning the roots will help stimulate new growth and allow room for the fresh potting mixture. 
  2. If you require your plant to grow bigger, select a larger container and fill it with potting mix. Cover drainage holes with insect screening material cut into squares slightly larger than the drainage holes. 
  3. Place the pruned tree into the container and arrange. Once happy with the position of the plant fill with fresh potting mix, carefully making sure the mix fills around all of the roots. Fill to the desired level, allowing a shallow area for irrigation.


  • Debco Bonsai Mix contains a balanced fertiliser but additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs.
  • Plants should be watered immediately after potting and fertilise 3-4 weeks after potting. 

Fertilising is best carried out in spring and autumn.
