  • Cover the base of the pot with crocks to ensure good drainage
  • Place a layer of potting mix in the bottom of the pot and gently tap the old plant from it’s pot
  • Fill in around the edges with more Citrus Potting Mix ensuring the top feeder roots are covered with 2cm of fresh potting mix
  • Water well and keep in light shade for a few weeks to allow roots to grow

Watering
