Partly fill a pot (large enough to comfortably accommodate plant roots) with Bord na Móna Growise Organic Vegetable Compost. Ensure the plant to be re-potted is well watered. Tap it out of its container or carefully remove from its plug tray.
Position the undisturbed root ball of the plant in the new pot and top up with more compost. Gently firm the compost to ensure that no large air spaces are left around the roots. Water well and keep shaded until the plant is well established.
