Usage


• The best time for planting is spring

• Mechanically pressed product

• Before use, it is recommended to loosen it, and when the substrate is dry - soak it with water

• On the day before transplanting, water the plant generously

Transplanting into pots

• Choose a clean pot or box with drainage holes - larger than the root ball

• Pour drainage to the bottom of the container (e.g. expanded clay) and then partially fill with rhododendrons and azaleas substrate

• Carefully remove the root ball, gently remove dead roots, and loose the twisted ones

• We put the plant (it should grow at the same depth) and fill the pot with rhododendrons and azaleas substrate - up to 2 cm below the edge

• After transplanting, lightly knead the substrate and water moderately

Transplanting shrubs

• Dig a hole about 30% larger than the root ball and fill it partly with rhododendrons and azaleas substrate

• Carefully remove the root ball, gently remove dead roots, and loose the twisted ones

• We put the plant (it should grow at the same depth) and fill the rest of the hole with rhododendrons and azaleas soil

• After transplanting, lightly knead the substrate and water it abundantly for the first time

Practical advice

• It is recommended to start fertilizing 3-4 months after transplanting

• Rhododendrons and other acidophilic plants prefer slightly shaded places

• The pot should be about 30% larger in diameter than the root ball

• Containers with smaller dimensions will not provide plants with adequate space for the proper growth of the root ball, which will cause the substrate to dry very quickly

• Pots with plants should be kept in the constant humidity possible

• A change in the color of the substrate indicates the state of its humidity and the need for watering

• Excessive watering can lead to the development of algae in the soil
