Water the plants well before starting. 
Line the basket, if required, with moss or other liner.
Half fill the basket with Miracle-Gro All Purpose Compost and plant trailing plants through the sides of the basket. 
Fill the rest of the basket with Miracle-Gro All Purpose compost.
Plant more trailing plants around the edges and upright plants in centre.
Firm in lightly as you go. Water thoroughly and keep in a sheltered area until the plants are established and not at risk
from frost.

Planting out:

Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. 
Position the plant and fill with a mixture of 50% soil and 50% Miracle-Gro All 
Purpose Compost.

Where to use

Planting in beds & borders
Dispose of all last year’s compost on a compost heap or flower beds.
Wash containers thoroughly.
Fill your pots and containers with Miracle-Gro All Purpose Compost.
Add plants, firm lightly and water thoroughly.

Outdoor:

  • Water the plant thoroughly.
  • Place a layer of Miracle-Gro All Purpose Compost in the base of the new pot.
  • Gently tap out the plant from the old pot and place in the centre of the new one.
  • Fill the space around the root ball, ensuring that the compost level is the same as it was originally and firm gently.

Water the plant well.

Indoor:

Most established plants should be re-potted once a year, normally in late Spring. This will give their roots room to grow and will help the plant thrive.
Choose a new container that is 20-25% bigger than the previous one.

  • Water the plant thoroughly.
  • Place a layer of Miracle-Gro All Purpose Compost in the base of the new pot.
  • Gently tap out the plant from the old pot and place in the centre of the new one.
  • Fill the space around the root ball, ensuring that the compost level is the same as it was originally and firm gently.
  • Water the plant well.

Pots and containers:

It’s time to repot when:

  • The plant is overgrown and has become “root bound” (roots are densely wrapped in a horizontal direction).
  • Roots are growing out of the drainage holes.
  • The plant’s lower leaves turn yellow or drop off.
  • The compost is faded or crusty.
