Kids Go Gardening - - Winter -

You will need

• A shal­low container with holes in the bot­tom (we used re­cy­cled tomato pun­nets from the su­per­mar­ket)

• Seed rais­ing mix

• Seeds

• Spray bot­tle (an old bath­room cleaner spray bot­tle is fine but be sure to clean it out first) 1 Fill your container with seed rais­ing mix.

2 Level and press the mix down firmly us­ing a small block of wood.

3 Wa­ter gen­tly then leave to drain for a few min­utes.

4 Sprin­kle seeds on top of the seed rais­ing mix and lightly cover with a very fine layer of mix. (Check on the la­bel for plant­ing depth as some big­ger seeds might need to be pushed down into the mix).

5 Place the tray in a warm, shel­tered spot with plenty of light.

6 Spray with wa­ter when the seed rais­ing mix starts to look a lit­tle dry, keep­ing it moist but not soak­ing wet.
