How to Use
Rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended structure. Then you’re all set!
- Fill a seed tray with compost and firm gently
- Sow seeds to the depth and spacing mentioned on the seed packet. Many seeds have specific germination advice which should be followed
- Water compost after sowing seeds. Covering the seed tray with polythene or glass will help to stop the compost from drying out
- Keep trays in a warm area, away from direct sunlight until seeds germinate. Once seeds have germinated, remove the polythene/glass and keep soil moist
- Prick out seedlings once large enough to handle. Hold the seedling by the leaves to avoid damage and gently tease the roots from the compost using a dibber or pencil
- Space seedlings to allow for vigorous growth. Water regularly until the seedlings are ready to be potted on
- Before potting, water plants well and allow to drain
- Choose new containers that are clean, have good drainage and enough space for root growth
- Put the plant in the new container and fill the space with new compost
- Water well and allow to drain
- Fill a pot or tray with compost and firm gently
- Prepare the cutting according to the specific needs of the plant
- Generally, removing the bottom leaves and creating a sloping cut in the stem close to the joint will make a good cutting
- Make a hole in the compost with a dibber or pencil, place the cutting in the hole and firm the compost around it
- Place in a warm spot away from direct sunlight
Container and hanging baskets
- Line the basket and fill with compost. Plant with trailing plants around the outside the upright plants in the middle
