Growing Tips

After potting or planting, apply Bougain Bloom Boost, and water thoroughly to remove any air pockets. Water regularly 3-4 times per week until established. Generally, plants that require quick-draining soil prefer to remain on the drier side, so limit watering to only as needed after well-established.

Planting Tips

  1. Select a sunny, well-draining location.
  2. Dig a whole three times as wide, and as deep as the pot.
  3. Gently place plant in the hole. Careful not to disturb the roots.
  4. If your bougainvillea plant is in a pot 7 gallons or larger, we recommend planting in the nursery pot. Cut out the bottom of the pot before planting.
  5. Add mix; press lightly.
  6. Water to remove any air pockets.
For maximum color on your bougainvillea, use Bougain Plant Food & Fertilizer after each blooming cycle.
