HOW TO USE

AS A PLANTING MIX

  1. Water the plant and allow it to drain.
  2. Add a layer of mix to the planting area.
  3. Dig a hole approximately twice the size of the plant's root ball.
  4. Carefully turn the plant out of its existing pot, gently loosen the root ball and trim off any dead or damaged roots.
  5. Partly fill the hole with mix, position the plant so the top of the root ball will remain at the same level, and fill up with mix.
  6. Press gently around the base of the plant.
  7. Thoroughly water the plant and then frequently enough to ensure the mix remains moist but not wet until the plant is well established.

AS A SOIL IMPROVER

  1. Add a 10cm deep layer of Osmocote® Garden Soil Premium Planting
  2. Mix and dig into the existing garden bed soil to a depth of 15cm.

ONGOING PLANT CARE

  • Osmocote® Garden Soil Premium Planting Mix contains a balanced fertiliser but depending on plant needs, additional fertiliser will be required in time.
  • To maintain moisture and soil temperature, add a layer of mulch, avoiding the plant stem as this can cause disease.
  • For best results, top up the soil every time you plant.
