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.

 

Conifers

 

 

Step 1: Dig a planting hole with a circumference greater than the rootball.

Step 2: Dig in plenty of compost to enrich the soil in the planting hole.

Step 3: Place the conifer with wrapped rootball in the planting hole. If the conifer is potted, carefully remove from the pot and place in the planting hole.

Step 4: Cut off the sacking.

Step 5: Pull the sacking from under the rootball.

Step 6: Fill in the planting hole with soil.

Step 7: Carefully firm down the soil around the rootball.

Step 8: Water well, and continue to do so if the weather remains dry. Carefully firm down the soil around the rootball.

 

Climbers

 

 

Step 1: Dig a planting hole 20 to 25 cm from the trellis.

Step 2: Dig in plenty of compost to enrich the soil in the planting hole.

Step 3: Remove the climbing plant from the pot.

Step 4: Place the climbing plant slanting next to the trellis.

Step 5: Fill up the planting hole with soil so that the growth point is placed below the surface.

Step 6: With a Clematis the base of the plant is protected from the sun by planting low plants in front of it.

Step 7: Detach the tendrils from the cane and tie them to the trellis.

Step 8: Water well, and continue to do so if the weather remains dry.
