How to use

Tips for repotting

  1. Water plants and drain thoroughly before repotting.
  2. Select a pot with adequate drainage holes, one size larger than the current pot.
  3. Partly fill with a layer of Yates Potting Mix with Dynamic Lifter.
  4. To remove the plant from the old pot, hold the base of the plant firmly and tap the pot gently against the edge of a table to loosen the root ball.
  5. Position the plant in the pot, leaving a 1-2cm space below the rim for watering.
  6. Holding the plant in position, pour mix down and around the roots. Gently tap the bottom of the pot to settle the contents and add more mix if necessary.
  7. Lightly firm with fingers, then water.

General plant care

Position

Most plants prefer an open, sunny position. If growing in part shade, turn pot regularly to ensure even growth.

Watering

Water regularly, in the morning or evening, particularly during warm weather. As a general guide most indoor plants require watering once or twice a week in summer depending on position. Outdoor pot plants may require more frequent watering. Water less often and more sparingly during winter, taking care not to over-water. Water only when potting mix feels dry to the touch. Mediterranean herbs, such as thyme, oregano and marjoram, prefer drier conditions. Allow to dry out thoroughly between watering.

Feeding

During periods of active growth, to maintain plant vigour, fertilise with either Dynamic Lifter, Dynamic Lifter Plus, Thrive or Uplift as directed on pack.
