EASY CARE FOR POTS AND BAS­KETS

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CLIPPINGS -

1 Use a good pot­ting mix or home­made com­post; cheap pot­ting mixes can be a wa­ter-repelling mix of sand and sawdust. 2 If you won’t get around to wa­ter­ing every day in dry weather, use self-wa­ter­ing pots or bas­kets. 3 Add slow-re­lease plant food ac­cord­ing to the packet. “Ever-gen­er­ous” means you must feed gen­er­ously too. 4 Choose a spot they love. Check the la­bel: hot sunny win­dows that suit plants in cold cli­mates will burn fo­liage in hot ar­eas. In the right spot your plant will thrive.
