  3. Position the plant in the pot and fill with potting mix. Do not pack down.
  4. Water thoroughly and protect plant from wind, heat and strong sunlight for around 5 days.


  • Debco Rose, Gardenia & Azalea Potting Mix contains a balanced fertiliser but additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs.

  • Plants should be re-potted with new potting mix when they outgrow the pot or after 12-18 months.
