Seeds! Any You LikeBuy
Fertiliser such as Seasol
Fill your pots with seed raising mix. Egg cartons make a great seed starting tray!
Get your seeds ready. We are using marigold, sunflower and poppy
Place your seeds into the soil. Bury the seeds twice as deep as the seed is wide
Poppy seed however only needs to be sprinkled on the surface of the soil as they’re very fine.
Spray mist the soil until moist and keep it moist until the seed has germinated
Watch them grow!
When your seedlings have their 2nd set of leaves they will need to be fed with a fertiliser
As the seedlings grow expose them to a little sunlight each day to get them ready for the outdoors
Then they will need to be transplanted to a larger pot or the garden
Don’t forget to gently water the seedlings once planted!
