How to Use

First rework the compost between your hands.

Seed Sowing

A pair of hands over a seed tray, one hand is holding seeds, the other is sowing them into the seed tray.

  • Place compost in a seed tray or pot, filling to just below the rim. Firm gently to provide a flat, even surface
  • Water the compost thoroughly and allow to drain
  • Sow seeds evenly over the surface paying attention to the seed packet instructions. Cover lightly with a fine layer of compost, if necessary
  • Cover the seed tray with glass or polythene to reduce moisture loss and prevent drying out
  • Place in a warm area out of direct sunlight until germination has occurred. Remove polythene/glass and grow on until seedlings are ready to prick out

Young Plants Seedlings

  • Prick out seedlings when they are large enough to handle. Hold seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently remove seedling using a dibber or pencil
  • Plant seedlings in Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost allowing space for growth
  • Water regularly

Top tip: Because of a base nutrient supply, which feeds for 5-6 weeks, Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost encourages balanced development of young plant.

Potting on

  • Fill around the root ball with Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost, gently tapping the pot to fill air spaces
  • Firm gently and water. Containers • Choose an appropriate container with adequate drainage holes. Place a layer grit in the base of the pot
  • Fill the container with Gro-Sure Vegetable Growing Compost
  • Firm compost down, to allow space to the rim of container

Top Tip: For growing of root vegetables that require extra feeding incorporate Westland organic Chicken Manure Pellets when planting. For leafy vegetables try using Westland Vegetable Food with high nitrogen content for lusher, greener, healthier foliage.

Aftercare for Vegetables

Once the vegetables have emerged or established, feed with a granular plant food such as Westland Fish, Blood & Bone for healthy, sustained plant growth.

General Advice

For leafy vegetables try using Westland Sulphate of Ammonia Vegetable Food.
