There comes a time when most plants will outgrow their pots. You may notice the flowers beginning to wilt or roots poking through the bottom of the pot. This means it’s time for the plant to move.

Here are three easy steps to repot your plant, along with a few pictures from our own attempts with the office plants at Primrose!

1. Prepare the new pot
When you know your plant is ready for a bigger home, make sure it’s well watered – this will help to ease it out. Choose a new pot that’s bigger than the old one. Line the bottom of the pot with a layer of compost and dampen it with some water.

The roots are showing so this plant’s ready to go!

2. Take the plant out
This can be the tricky bit. You have to be careful not to damage the plant, so try to keep your palm placed over the soil with your fingers round the stem as you ease the plant from the pot. Give the pot a tap on a table or step to dislodge the roots. You may even need to break the pot away if they’re really stuck!

Taking Plant Out
And after a little work, the plant should just slide out.

3. Put the plant in its new pot
If the roots are especially compressed, you may need to work them out a bit – just use your fingers to loosen them up. Then place the plant into the new pot. It should fit in easily, with some free space around. Add a bit more compost to fill the gaps and give it all a good water.

All settled in its new home!

So that’s it – 3 simple steps and your plant is repotted!

We particularly recommend our Miracle-Gro compost – you’ll only need a little because it expands up to 3 times with water. If you’re looking for plant pots we have a great range, starting from just 99p! And of course, if it’s plants you’re after, we’ve got you covered.
