quality potting mix for all types of plants and growing conditions, Premium will help you save water while growing healthy, happy plants. It includes Scotts Osmocote® that feeds for 4 months as well as a wetting agent to help water soak in

When to use


  • Growth stimulants encourage strong root development leading to healthier, more vigorous plants
  • Wetting agent assists moisture to soak into the mix and helps roots absorb nutrients
  • This mix contains a higher level of more readily available soluble nitrogenthan regular mixes. While it contains a balanced fertiliser, additional feeding may be required depending on the nutrient demands of plants being grown in it
  • Certified to meet the Australian Standard for Premium potting mixes



  • Indoor and outdoor plants, shrubs, flowers, palms, fruit trees, vegetables and herbs - an all-round all-purpose mix
  • Can be used in pots that will be submerged in ponds but make sure the 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 Mix straight from the bag - don't mix it with other materials. Close the bag tightly after use
  2. Water each plant well an hour or so before repotting, and leave to drain
  3. Choose a clean container with large drainage holes and partly fill it the fresh mix out of the bag
  4. Carefully lift the plant to be potted up from its existing pot. Gently loosen the old mix around the root ball without disturbing roots too much and remove any damaged, twisted or dead roots
  5. Place the plant in the centre of the pot (if potting up individually) or position it where you want it grow in a larger container that will eventually hold several plants
  6. Fill in with Premium Mix to within 2-3cm of the top rim of the pot and press lightly
  7. Tap the new pot or container gently on the bench to help the new mix settle in and around the roots - do not pack it down
  8. Water the pot thoroughly (until water runs from the drainage holes) then allow it to drain freely. If necessary, top the mix up again to the suggested level
  9. Place the pot or container in the shade for a few days to allow the plant to settle and acclimatise before moving back to its permanent home
