Potting containers, tubs and troughs • First, ensure that the plants to be potted have been well-watered. If dry, immerse the roots in water for half an hour • Fill the pot, tub or other container with SylvaGrow Tub and Basket • Make holes large enough to accommodate the items to be potted and insert, taking care that the growing medium is at about the same height on the stem as previously • Gently firm the SylvaGrow Tub and Basket around the plants and water thoroughly • Ensure that the SylvaGrow Tub and Basket is kept moist but not over-wet at all times but avoid too much run-off as this can leach the nutrients away • After four weeks, regularly apply a liquid feed, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
