  1. Select a clean pot at least 25mm wider than the original and partly fill with potting mix.
  2. Turn the plant out of its container. Loosen root ball gently and remove any rotten or entirely dried out roots.
  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 Terracotta & Tub™ Mix contains a balanced fertiliser but additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs.
  • Plants should be watered immediately after potting and frequently enough to ensure the mix remains moist but not wet. Avoid allowing plants to dry out.
  • Plants should be re-potted with new potting mix when they outgrow the pot or after 12-18 months.

We recommend you always wear gloves when gardening. Wear a particulate mask if dusty.
