A premium quality potting mix that provides excellent growth for all types of plants and growing conditions, including indoor plants. It includes Scotts Osmocote®, which distributes nutrients and feeds for 4 months.

When to use


  • Growth stimulants encourage strong root development leading to healthier, more vigorous plants
  • This potting mix contains a higher level of more readily available soluble nitrogen than regular potting mixes.
  • Certified to meet the Australian Standard for Premium potting mixes



  • Indoor and outdoor plants, shrubs, flowers, palms, fruit trees, vegetables and herbs - an all-around, all-purpose potting mix
  • Can be used in pots that will be submerged in ponds but make sure the potting mix is covered with a 2-3cm layer of coarse washed sand or pebbles to prevent it floating out of the pot and contaminating water
  • Safe to use on new plants - the controlled release of nutrients means it will not burn soft leaves or tender young roots



  • Don't use in hydroponic growing systems or ponds
  • Don't use on lawns - use only specifically named lawn topdress soils on grassed areas


  1. Use Premium Potting Mix straight from the bag - no further additives required
  2. Water the plants that are to be repotted and allow them to drain
  3. Select a clean pot with large drainage holes and partly fill it with new potting mix
  4. Carefully knock the plant from its existing pot and loosen the root ball. Trim off any dead or damaged roots
  5. Place the plant in the centre of the pot if growing individually, or arrange as preferred for multiple plantings, and fill the pot with potting mix
  6. Gently tap the new pot down to help the new potting mix settle in and around the roots. Do not pack the potting mix down
  7. Thoroughly water the plant and allow it to drain freely. If necessary, top the potting mix up again to the suggested level of 2-3cm below the rim
  8. Place the pot in a sheltered spot for 5 days to allow the plant to settle and acclimatise before moving it to a permanent home

For a complete guide on How to Use Scotts Osmocote® Premium Potting Mix, watch our video and always check the packaging



  • Potting mixes can be used at any time of the year
  • Repotting established pot plants is best done either in Spring or Autumn - avoid Winter or Summer as the extremes of temperature may stress plants
  • Flowering plants should be repotted after they have flowered - enjoy the blooms first!



  • Premium Potting Mix contains a balanced fertiliser up to 4 months - additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs
  • Avoid allowing plants to dry out - plants should be watered immediately after potting and frequently enough to keep the potting mix moist (not wet)
  • Plants should be repotted with new potting mix when they have outgrown the pot or after 12-18 months



CAUTION: This product may cause staining of hard surfaces if wet. Avoid contact with hard surfaces and if contact does occur, sweep off immediately

When using potting mixes, we recommend the use of garden gloves to protect your hands, and if dusty, wear a particulate mask

SAFETY FIRST: Read the instructions on the product packaging before use and take particular note of any warnings or cautions on the label
