Make sure your selected pot(s) have drainage holes. If you are combining different plants, make sure they are good companions (i.e. they like similar amounts of sun or shade and moisture conditions).


Fill your container with potting soil and tamp down lightly to reduce total volume.  Scoop out a hole in the soil for each plant deep enough so the top of the rootball will end up about 1” below the edge of the container.  Remove the plants from their nursery pots and place in the holes. dd more potting soil until it is level all around your plants.  Tamp everything down again gently with the flat of your palms Water carefully to avoid disturbing the top layer of soil.  Repeat watering several times until water drains from the bottom of the container.


Container plants need to be regularly watered and occasionally fed.  For best results, water only when the soil is slightly dry to the touch.  Because Bar Harbor Blend is naturally dark in color, it may be hard to tell just by sight.  Feed regularly with an organic plant food.
