HOW TO USE

Container Plants

Use Potting & Planting Mix straight from the bag. For best results do not mix with any other material. Close the bag tightly after use
Before repotting, water original pots thoroughly and allow them to drain
Choose a clean pot, bowl or basket with large drainage holes and partly fill it with mix
Carefully knock the plant out of its existing pot and gently remove any damaged or dried out roots without breaking up the main root ball
Place the plant in the new container, checking that it will be at the same level as it was in the old pot, and fill with the fresh mix to within 2cm of the rim of the pot
Tap the pot gently to allow the mix to settle. Do not press or pack it down
Water thoroughly and add a little more mix if settling occurs after watering
Allow excess water to drain away freely
Place the pot in a shady spot for 2-3 days to allow the herb to establish before moving pot back to an open position


Garden Beds

Add a 10-15cm layer of Potting & Planting Mix to your garden bed
Thoroughly mix it into the top 20-30cm of soil
