Flowering Plants in Ornamental Pots


Step 1: What do i need? Ornamental pots, plants, clay granules and potting compost.

Step 2: First, place a layer of clay granules in the pots; this makes them lighter than filling the entire pot with potting soil.

Step 3: This will also prevent the potting compost from being washed away with the water.

Step 4: Then add a layer of potting compost.

Step 5: Remove the plants from their pots one by one.

Step 6: Plant them in the ornamental pot and fill the space between the rootballs with potting compost.

Step 7: Water immediately, and thereafter water regularly.

Step 8: The potting compost provides sufficient nutrients for around 6 weeks, after which you need to feed.
