When to re-pot your plants.
Move container plants into larger containers of fresh Organic Potting Mixture at regular intervals. Plants can be re-potted most times of the year, although, in winter, the recovery time may be longer due to low temperatures and low light conditions.
Roots protruding from drainage holes are an indication that re-potting is necessary. The only sure way to discover the state of the roots is to remove the plant from its container and examine them carefully. If fresh root tips are showing all over the surface of the root ball, or forming a thick spiral at the base, then re-potting is necessary.
