How to Use

Rework the compost between your hands, so it regains its intended structure. Then you’re all set!

Sowing seeds

  • 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

Seedlings/Pricking out

  • 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

Potting

  • 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

Take cuttings

  • 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
  • Water well
