Directions for use

Directions for potting plants:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  2. Half fill your container with Tui All Purpose Potting Mix.
  3. Gently take the plant from the current container, loosen the root ball and remove any loose or dead plant material and roots.
  4. Position the plant in the centre of the new container and fill with Tui All Purpose Potting Mix up to 3cm from the top.
  5. Gently firm potting mix around the base of the plant. The potting mix should be at the same level on the plant as it was in the previous container.
  6. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

Container plants should be regularly re-potted into containers of fresh potting mix.

If plants start shedding leaves and the root ball is dense, they should be re-potted into a larger container.

To check if your plant needs watering, gently press the surface of the mix. If it feels dry, water.

    I was disappointed with this product, it seemed like it was mostly bark bots rather than potting mix 😒------->TUI TEAM REPLY: Thank you for the feedback regarding Tui All Purpose Potting Mix, this type of information is very useful for Tui Products to monitor our product quality and is therefore much appreciated. To give you some background, Tui All Purpose Potting mix is a mixture of composted plant-based materials including composted bark, with added pumice. The blend of these base raw materials has been specifically formulated with the size and ratio of these products to ensure that the final potting mix has the correct drainage and water-holding capacity for optimal plant growth and health. We carry out regular testing to ensure that the quality is consistent and perform grow-out trials are conducted to confirm that good plant health is achieved. The composted bark and other base raw materials in this mix are a reasonably fine grade, although some longer pieces of bark can go through the screen lengthwise. There is some batch to batch variation. We have touched base with you to see if you have any product left and also the batch details so we can look into this further. Kind regards ^Tui Team

    SaturAid granular soil wetter is a unique and worthwhile addition to all gardens. It saves you time and money as it reduces water use by up to 50%.

    It is a granular soil wetter made from coir and other non toxic ingredients. When applied, it channels water to the root zone where it is needed most. SaturAid promotes even water distribution so there is less water run off and dry spots in potting mix and soils. It makes watering, rainfall and fertilisers more effective, even in sandy, clay or compacted soils.

    Apply SaturAid to all areas of the garden including indoor and outdoor pot plants, shrubs, garden beds and lawns. As SaturAid is made from eco-friendly materials it is safe to use in the vegetable garden. SaturAid will start working immediately.

    Note: SaturAid is not a water storing crystal. It is not a jelly like substance that holds water in the soil.
