When potting up a new plant, make sure you have read the plant label carefully and follow any instructions as to specific plant requirements. As a guideline, the following instructions are best practice:

  1. Ensure the plant to be potted is thoroughly moist before potting or repotting.
  2. Trim any damaged or tangled roots, loosen up the root ball and clean off the top 1cm of the old mix to eliminate any weeds.
  3. Partially fill a clean, free draining container with Daltons Easy Lift Potting Mix.
  4. Place the plant in the container and adjust the potting mix under the plant until it is at the desired height.
  5. Fill the rest of the container to approximately 2cm from the top, gently tapping to ensure the mix distributes throughout the roots.
  6. Water the plant and allow to drain. Leave in a shaded spot for 2-3 days to establish.
