How To Grow

Step 1 – Choose a pot at least 300mm wide and position in a well-lit spot, out of direct sunlight.
Step 2 – Fill pot with good quality potting mix such as Yates Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter.
Step 3 – Remove the plant from the container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots.
Step 4 – Position in pot and backfill with potting mix, gently firming down. Water in well.
Step 5 – Water when the potting mix is dry – insert your index finger to the first knuckle, if it’s dry, water and if it’s moist, don’t water.
Step 6 – Feed during the growing season with Yates Thrive® Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food to promote strong root development, an abundance of flowers and healthy foliage growth.
