1 CHECK the pot has drainage holes. Half-fill with er­i­ca­ceous or mul­ti­pur­pose com­post, and firm lightly. If leav­ing the plants pot­ted be­yond win­ter, mix in con­trolled-re­lease fer­tiliser. 2 EN­SURE the roots are damp be­fore plant­ing. Po­si­tion the conifer to­wards the back, with the top of the root­ball 3-4cm be­low the rim. 3 AR­RANGE the other plants close to­gether for in­stant im­pact – they won’t grow over win­ter. Work from largest to small­est. Fill all gaps with com­post and wa­ter well.
