Swan plants from seed

Kids Go Gardening - - Summer -

1 You can sow seeds straight into warm sunny patch of gar­den soil OR into a seed tray or pun­net filled with Black Magic Seed Rais­ing Mix.

2 Sprin­kle seeds thinly and cover with 3-5mm of seed rais­ing mix. Wa­ter gen­tly with a mist spray bot­tle.

3 The first leaves will ap­pear after two to three weeks. When your seedlings are 5 to 10 cm tall, plant them in a sunny place in the gar­den or big pots.


Cover your baby plants with net­ting to stop the but­ter­flies from lay­ing their eggs too soon. Or re­move some of the eggs. If you get too many hun­gry cater­pil­lars they can gob­ble up all the leaves be­fore the plants get a chance to grow!
