Information

Our 'Cactus & Succulent' Compost is brilliant for repotting any plant that requires dry soil to survive (think desert-dwellers). It has the perfect blend of fine-grade compost, oxygenating perlite, and grit/sand to keep drainage to its optimum.

Our hand-crafted compost comes in a resealable bag, meaning that you can always use it later if you have too much. It'll also stay fresh for at least twelve months once opened, so never worry about it going off shortly after purchase. We formulate the soil mix ourselves and keep it in quarantine for 14 days to ensure there are no soil-borne pests like Fungus Gnats.

  • Agaves - Tequila Plants
  • Aloe Vera
  • Amaryllis (Hippeastrum)
  • Burro's Tails

Choosing the Right Sized Pot

People often get confused with choosing the next suitable pot for their plant. As a general rule of thumb, houseplants like to be transplanted into the next sized pot that measures a few centimetres wider than the original. 

To correctly select the next sized pot for your plant, simply measure the original pot's diameter at the top. The table below shows more about which size to choose next, base on your current pot's diameter.

Definitely! Depending on the pot and saucer size, each box is around £2 - £5 cheaper than purchasing the items separately. You'd have to spend hours visiting different garden centres or online stores to find the best possible price, only to be hit by several delivery charges from each seller.
Our boxes come with free delivery - a whole lot of love. Every customer who purchases a Repotting Kit will be emailed with a Step-by-Step Guide on transplantation, which includes tips and tricks not mentioned on other websites. So, with one box away from successfully repotting your houseplant, what are you waiting for?!
 
Hand-Crafted Compost
For the last five years, we have been formulating composts for our houseplants, balancing the critical ingredients for different groups (Bonsai, Bulbs, Cacti, Tropicals, etc.), with varying ratios of compost, perlite, grit & sand. We believe that a well-structured soil is critical for maximising both the root and foliar growth performance. We source the compost from well-respected companies in Southern England, which has tight restrictions over quality control & peat-free regulations.
Your compost will come in a resealable bag, so don't worry about having extras! The soil will stay fresh for at least twelve months when stored in a cool place with the bag's top securely fastened.

Baby Bio 175ml
Baby Bio is a concentrate, meaning that this product can make up to 200L. Mix 5 - 10 drops to ½ litre of water (1 pint, a typical water bottle), OR ½ capful to 1 litre (2 pints). The exact amount of drops isn't a priority, but be sure always to keep your plants well-fed to optimise their overall health. (NPK - 10.6 - 4.4 - 1.7).
To find out more about how frequently you should feed your plant, search for the specific-plant article via the Menu's 'Search' function. Generally, houseplants are best fed every four waters in the spring and summer & every six in the colder months for their dormancy.

Plastic Terracotta Pot
We'll only use pots that are top quality, recyclable and promote good drainage in the soil.

Plastic Terracotta Saucer
Depending on the pot size chosen above, our matching saucer is also recyclable and of good quality. You can even double this up as a 'Pebble Tray' to increase the humidity levels around your plant.

Sticky Fly Catchers (Optional at £4.00) (RRP £5.99)
Our Sticky Fly Catchers are brilliant for when Fungus Gnats strike. Located just above the soil, it aims to catch the adult females before laying their eggs in the compost below. The individual sticky-sheet works for over six weeks, with two replaceable rectangular sheets included with the price. Non-toxic to pets or humans.

How to Assemble
  1. Assembling your Sticky Fly Catcher is simple; simply push the metal rod's serrated edge into the sheet's yellow base to attach the two.
  2. Then, insert the rod's base into the soil until the attached sheet is around one inch from the soil line. This will ensure it's securely planted into the soil and won't topple over. Remove both of the white protective layers to finish assembly.
  3. Simply replace the sheet once it becomes totally un-stickable, using the steps mentioned above.

Notes
Fertiliser - Wash hands after use and rinse off splashes on the skin. Do not inhale, drink, or eat this product & seek medical advice if this occurs.
Store the bottle out of direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place between 5°C - 35°C, & out of the reach of children. A good example would be a cupboard or garage.
Always read the label and product information before use. Do not over-dilute or over-use the fertiliser/pesticide than its recommended strength/dosage stated on the packaging. By purchasing this product, you have read and acknowledged Baby Bio's Safety Data Sheet.
Sticky Fly Catchers - Conains small parts (small metal rod). Keep away from children who may misuse the equipment.
Unfortunately, our Repotting Kits are only available to those in the U.K. because of E.U. trading laws on plant-based materials. However, if you are in the U.K., expect free delivery and postage within three days of purchase! 
Any good potting mix will only hold a certain volume of water before dripping the excess through the drainage holes. You're most likely going to cause root rot by watering the plant too often instead of the exact amount of water per drink.

Here's an example, it's far better to water the plant 7L in one go once a week, as supposed to 1L per day for the entire week. The roots won't be able to access the oxygen within the soil, which is critical for reducing the development of root rot. Like bubbles in an ocean, the air will rise when the potting mix is wet, so it's essential to allow the soil to dry slightly between drinks to regain the oxygen.

Our Repotting Kits are designed to maximise both the air circulation and soil structure around your plant's roots, meaning that it'll have the very best conditions for optimal growth. Remember not to water the soil too frequently, and your little friend will very much enjoy his new home!

Certainly! You can solely buy the plant-specific compost to save money, but it won't include the pot, saucer and fertiliser. Click here to view our Cactus & Succulent-specific potting mix! (It's a separate product). 
We'll send you a confirmation email with the purchase's receipt, along with a Step By Step Guide on repotting your plant with these products. You can then refer to the Guide once your Repotting Kit arrives to get the ball rolling!
This product comprises individually-sourced components to create our quality potting mix. Its basal component, the peat-free soil, is sourced from two well-established companies both in southern England and Northern Ireland that comply with strict garden waste management and production regulations in the U.K.. We then combine the two soil components on-site before adding the perlite, sand, grit and biochar to improve the overall soil structure and replicate the ecological habitats of temperate and tropical climates.

All our products include recyclable packaging/materials, with deliveries made to the local Post Office or parcel depot via fully-electric transport. Our commitment is to provide good quality potting mixes to customers without causing harm to the local and wider environment.
