Repotting is often dreaded, even by those really interested in gardening and the whole process of enjoying a happy and healthy pot-based garden. If you’re looking at keeping it as fuss-free and as practical as possible, here are some suggestions to help you make the most out of it!
Prepare your plant’s new home with pride
As suggested in LifeSavvy’s post “5 Simple Tips to Make Repotting Your Plants a Breeze”, the whole goal is to help your plant not only get to, but enjoy, its new home. The following tips will help:
- Have a designated potting space: This should be a spot where you ideally have a potting tray to contain the mess, spare/new pots, a trowel and other tools to help you handle this job rapidly.
- Prioritize drainage: We know you want to simply get it done quickly, but improper drainage makes for unhealthy plants. Add in rocks or gravel to the bottom of the new pot to leave lots of space for drainage.
- Check root health: While you have the plant out and about, you’ll want to check roots to make sure that it’s as healthy as possible so that you can help it grow stronger and better.
Your plants will thank you!
In prioritizing all of these details, repotting will be simple, fun and successful in giving you happy and healthy plants. Want more advice? Check out LifeSavvy’s plant repotting post for more information!
