How to use

Directions for use

For best results do not mix Yates Speciality Potting Mix Plants & Ferns 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 pot with drainage holes, one size larger than the current pot.

Step 3: Partly fill the new pot with Yates Speciality Potting Mix Plants & Ferns.

Step 4: Gently remove the plant from the existing pot, loosen the soil from around the root ball and remove any dead or damaged roots.

Step 5: Place the plant in the new pot, add more of the mix around the plant and gently pat down.  Leave a 1-2cm space below the rim for watering.

Step 6: Water thoroughly and allow to drain.
