Coast of Maine 'Stonington Blend' Platinum Grower's Mix
This 1.5 cubic foot bag will fill:
(36) 1 quart (6″) pots
(9) 1 gallon (8″) pots
(3) 3 gallon (10″) pots
(1) 10 gallon (20″) pot
*The above are approximations, as the actual amount of Platinum Grower’s Mix needed will de-pend on the size of your plant’s root ball.
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).
Seedlings or clones should be transplanted into larger containers when they have sprouted their 4th or 5th set of leaves.
Coast of Maine recommends using their Sprout Island™ Seed Starter for germinating seeds.
Water your plants 1 – 2 days before transplanting. This will help to keep the rootball intact in the potting soil and help it slide out of its pot more easily.
Fill the transplant container with Stonington Blend™ and pre-water. (Avoid overpacking the soil as this can affect drainage and could damage the tender roots.)
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 top of the pot.
Carefully remove the plants from their smaller containers and place into the holes in the transplant container.
Add more soil until it is level all around your plants.
Water lightly to avoid disturbing the top layer of soil.
