Osmocote Professional Premium Plus Potting Mix also features ScottsCoir for premium water retention, perfect for the long summers.

HOW TO USE

Use Premium Plus Mix straight from the bag - don't mix it with other materials. Close the bag tightly after use
Choose a clean container with large drainage holes and partly fill it the fresh mix out of the bag
Carefully lift the plant to be potted up from its existing pot. Gently loosen the root ball without disturbing roots too much and remove any damaged, dried out or twisted roots
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
Fill in with Premium Plus to within 2-3cm of the top rim of the pot and press lightly
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
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
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
