Step 2: Remove the shrub from the container, gently tease the roots and cut away any circled or tangled roots. Give the foliage a light prune to encourage new shoots.
Step 3: Position in middle of pot and backfill with potting mix, gently firming down. Water in well.
Step 4: Water when the potting mix is dry – insert your index finger to the first knuckle, if it’s dry, water and if it’s moist, don’t water.
Step 5: Feed fortnightly during spring and summer with Yates Thrive Houseplant Liquid Plant Food.
