Spring seed project
YOU WILL NEED:
Biodegradable pots Seed raising mix Seeds Water
1 Fill your pots with seed raising mix. 2 Water thoroughly so that the pots are wet all over. 3 Sow your seeds. Cover seeds with about twice their depth in seed raising mix. (Read the instructions on your seed packet). 4 Place your pots in a sunny sheltered spot. 5 Check every day and water as necessary to keep them moist. 6 When your seedlings are growing strongly and the risk of frost is over, plant your seedings (pot-and-all) into the garden or a bigger container. Make sure the pot is covered by soil then water thoroughly. Don’t let your pot dry out! 7 To keep your seedlings growing strongly, feed once every week or two with liquid fertiliser. If you plant them in the garden, mix in some compost and fertiliser before you plant.
