How to use

For best results do not mix yates Premium potting mix with any other material.  Use straight from the bag and seal tightly after use to avoid the mix drying out.

Step 1: Water the plant thoroughly before repotting and leave to drain.

Step 2: Select a clean container with drainage holes.

Step 3: Partly fill the new container with Yates Premium Potting Mix.

Step 4: Remove the plant from the existing pot.  Gently loosen the mix from around the outside of the rootball and remove any dead or damaged roots.

Step 5: Position the plant in a pot leaving a 3-5cm space below the rim of the pot for ease of watering.

Step 6: Fill with Yates Premium potting mix lightly firming around the rootball to remove large air pockets.

Step 7: Water plant and allow to drain.

When potting African violets, orchids, camellias, azaleas and phosphorus sensitive natices we recommend using a speciality mix.
