You put the manure on top of the pot. As a rule of thumb, we use one handful per 10 liters of pot contents.
You can also give a slow-acting fertilizer (eg osmocote) that works for 3 months. In that case, you only give the manure in May.
After August, no more manure can be administered. The plant must then harden and come to rest for the winter.
In the summer you can repot your Laurier. The size of the plant determines the moment of repotting.
Remove the old pot and immerse your Laurier in a bucket of water for 5 minutes.
The diameter of the new pot should be about 5 to 10 cm larger than that of the old pot.
Remember to take a pot with enough holes in the bottom. Excess water must be able to leave the pot easily.
Put a layer of 2 cm pebbles or clay granules on the bottom of the pot. This promotes drainage.
You can use a 'heavy' potting soil. This means a potting soil in which peat, clay and dried organic manure are mixed. You do not need to add extra fertilizers. The potting soil contains sufficient nutrients for the coming time. A recently repotted plant is somewhat more vulnerable than usual. Give the plant some extra attention during the first period.
