Directions for use

Directions for potting new plants

  1. Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  2. Partly fill your container with Tui Superlight Potting Mix. Water the mix with a fine mist if it feels dry.
  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 container and fill with Tui Superlight Potting Mix up to 3cm  from the top.
  5. Gently firm the 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.

Plants in pots and containers outdoors may require more regular watering than garden beds. Water in the morning or evening, and avoid watering in the heat of the day.

Tui Superlight Potting Mix is suitable for all plant types, including acid loving plants such as azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, gardenias & blueberries.

    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.
