INITIAL PLANT CARE - What to do with your new plants

When you receive your plants, open the box, take the plants out, and put them upright.
Thoroughly water your plants as soon as you can.
When watering for the first time, ensure you water right into the pot so that the compost is well saturated.
Keep your new plants well watered and out of extreme weather conditions, especially during the summer months, until planted. If you can, provide them with shade so they are not in full sun.
Plant as soon as possible to maximise full growth potential.



PLANTING TIPS

The plants that you receive are young and actively growing.
When planting, make sure that they are not planted too deeply.
Apply a good layer of mulch, approx 5cms high to a distance of about 30cms around the plant.
Water in with your free sachet of eco-seaweed, this helps to reduce transplant shock and provide additional nutrients.
Continue to water every few days until they are well settled in. This usually takes around 12 weeks.



REMOVING PLANT FROM TUBE

When you are ready for planting, remove the plant from its container using the following steps:




1. Squeeze the sides of the tube to
loosen the plant from the tube.
Don’t pull out by the stem!.


2. Turn the plant upside down and grip
the stem between the sides of your fingers.


3. Tap the bottom of the tube with
your other hand - or tap the tube rim against a
solid object - and carefully slide off the tube.



  

PLANTING STEPS

When you are ready for planting, please follow these simple steps:




1. Using a small trowel or hand shovel...


2. Dig a small hole.


3. Place your plant in the hole making
sure not to plant too deeply.


4. Fill hole with surrounding soil.


5. Mulch your plant with pine bark
(or similar),covering at least
30 cms around.


6. Water in using the free sachet
of eco-seaweed, with your order.
This helps to reduce transplant
shock and provide additional nutrients
as the plant puts out new roots.
