transplanting yuccas into larger containers

Zone N.E Lincs | fuchsialady added on August 26, 2015 | Answered

I am transplanting yuccas into larger containers. It is confusing as to the best soil mix. I have garden compost (Jacks Magic). I was advised to use John Innes No. 3 but also have Jacks Magic compost. Another said rose and tree compost. I also have lots of cuttings from yuccas earlier in the year which are 3 to 4" tall. Should I overwinter in the same pots and transfer next year or pot on now in same compost for adult plants? I do not have a greenhouse but they will go under cover in a sheltered place. Many thanks.

I have listed a few links for you with more information.
They include a good 'recipe' for Yucca container potting mix.
Make sure the Yucca do need to be repotted, they generally do not need frequent repotting. If you are doing so though, make sure your only going up one size of pot.
For the smaller cuttings, I would leave them in their pots and repot next spring if they need to be put in larger pots.
