To ensure safe transplanting, prior to digging up the plant, we recommend pruning off approximately a third of the total foliage. The reason for pruning is the roots are being disturbed and are incidentally damaged in the process. If the plant has too many leaves and not enough roots, consequently the plant can not supply itself with adequate water and therefore the plant dries out. 


We recommend deep regular watering for a few days leading up to transplanting.  

To reduce water loss and transplant shock, we recommend applying 'Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate' as a foliar spray and as a soil drench.

To ensure the plant is going to a healthy home, we recommend improving the new area's soil by applying 5-10cm thick of garden compost, sprinkle 'Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser' as a complete, soil-conditioning  fertiliser, mix both into the soil. Then, dig the planting hole twice the width but the same depth of the rootball, backfill with the improved soil.  After planting, top off with a 5-8 cm layer of mulch. 

Keep the soil consistently moist for a few weeks to ensure they don't dry out during this stressful time.
