  2. Poke small holes at the bottom of the bag. Open the top of the bag and insert a garden hose. Drain.
  3. Mix one part Growstones with 2 to 4 parts sphagnum peat moss, coco coir, composted soil, or whatever your favorite container mix may be.
  4. Place Growstones planting mix in your gardening container or bed.
  5. Transplant by carefully setting the roots of your plant in a hole large enough to contain them. Cover plant roots with Growstones planting mix pressing gently with your hands.
