HOW TO USE

In pots

Use Cacti & Succulent Mix straight from the bag when potting or repotting cacti and succulents - don't mix it with other materials. Close the bag tightly after use
Choose a clean pot* with large drainage holes and fill one-third of it with drainage material like coarse washed river sand or gravel
Cover with a layer of mix
Place the plant in the pot, adding more of the mix around the root ball (use kitchen tongs to handle prickly plants)
Add more mix to about 2cm below the rim of the pot
Tap the pot or container gently on the bench to help the new mix settle in and around the roots. Firm lightly
Top dress the top with coarse washed river sand or gravel to prevent 'caking' of the surface of the potting mix and to ensure that the area close to the base of plant remains dry
Allow to settle for 2-3 days, then water in
*When repotting cacti & succulents, choose a new pot only one size larger than the original. Follow the instructions above, carefully discarding any surface dressing from the plant before removing it from the old pot and placing into the new one



In the garden

Cacti and succulents require a gravelly soil to thrive - create this environment by mounding up Cacti & Succulent Mix above the normal soil level and plant into the top of the mound
Elongated mounds can be built for massed plantings along borders or in garden beds

Cacti and succulents are best potted or planted into the garden in Spring and Autumn - never when temperatures are extreme.
