Top Sowing Tips!
- 1. You can also germinate seeds in a wet towel. Just dampen a kitchen cloth, put the seeds on the cloth and fold the cloth on top of the seeds. Check to see if they sprout over the next few days and plant the ones that do!
- 2. This keeps them safe from cold weather, hungry squirrels and other dangers. We’ll let you know when it’s safe to transplant (move them outside) later.
- 3. Put one seed per pot to give them the best chance of growing strong and tall
- 4. No pots to hand? Check your recycling bin for alternatives like a fruit punnet or egg box. Just make sure theres a drainage hole if you’re using plastic.
Once you've safely sown your seeds, fill in your printer calendar and tick off week 3. Well done!
We’ll be in touch next week with Danny’s watering tips.
Good luck sowing!
