Transplanting Plants to a Larger Container

So, you just bought plants from a garden center or a nursery and it’s in a small container. At this time, your plants needs room to grow and transplanting is the only way to get bigger. I’ll help you transplant it to a larger container.

You will need a large container, 5 gallons or larger with holes in the bottom of the container, fertilizer/compost, medium, worm casting.

If you just bought a plant from a garden center and it’s located indoors, you will need to harden the plant before fully putting them outdoors. Click here to learn how to harden plants.

With your medium, mix with compost/fertilizer. I like my medium fast draining so I add perlite to my soil. You can add worm casting to your medium. I add them to the container, then add the plant. Then you would add more soil to the container. Make sure that the plant is within soil level, unless it’s a tomato plant then you canĀ  plant it deeper. After planting, water heavily from the top.
