How to use
For pots and patio planters: It’s time to repot when the plant is overgrown and ‘root bound’ (densely wrapped roots). Roots are growing out of the drainage holes. The plant’s lower leaves turn yellow or drop off. The compost is faded or crusty.
How to repot: Wash the containers and water the plant. Place a layer of compost in the base of the pot. Tap out the plant from the old pot, loosen the root ball and place in the centre of the pot. Fill the space around the root ball, ensuring the compost level covers all the roots. Firm lightly, water thoroughly and let drain.
For planting in beds and borders: Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Position the plant and fill with 50% soil and 50% compost and firm around the base. Water thoroughly. We recommend using Miracle-Gro Peat Free Border Booster to further enrich the soil.
