  • A balanced and sustainable growing environment produces healthier, stronger plants that are less susceptible to insect attacks and diseases

HOW TO USE

Container Plants

  1. Use Potting & Planting Mix straight from the bag. For best results do not mix with any other material. Close the bag tightly after use
  2. Before repotting, water original pots thoroughly and allow them to drain
  3. Choose a clean pot, bowl or basket with large drainage holes and partly fill it with mix
  4. Carefully knock the plant out of its existing pot and gently remove any damaged or dried out roots without breaking up the main root ball
  5. Place the plant in the new container, checking that it will be at the same level as it was in the old pot, and fill with the fresh mix to within 2cm of the rim of the pot
  6. Tap the pot gently to allow the mix to settle. Do not press or pack it down
  7. Water thoroughly and add a little more mix if settling occurs after watering
  8. Allow excess water to drain away freely
  9. Place the pot in a shady spot for 2-3 days to allow the herb to establish before moving pot back to an open position
