Start with your pot, plants, good quality potting mix, drainage material and slow-release fertiliser.
Check if you have drainage holes that are not blocked. Place a single layer of shade cloth in the base of the pot; this keeps the drainage hole getting blocked.
Select your location and place your pot feet on the ground, placing your pot on top. This allows water to drain freely. Fill with your potting mix, and chat to your nursery about the best mix for the plants you are installing. Don’t overfill the potting mix to allow room for your plant.
Carefully remove the plant from the nursery pot by pushing from the base or cutting the pot. Place the plant and ensure your potting mix soil sits at the same level as the soil in the nursery pot. You do not want the plant stem to be covered. Water your plant and top up the soil if needed. Adding slow-release fertiliser (we sell an organic range on our site) feeds your plants with lots of goodies.
And now remember to water your plant when needed.
