Seed Creations Guide to growing from seed. If you have had little experience growing your own flowers, vegetables or herbs from seed give it a go you will be surprised how easy and fun it is.


1. Soil Preparation

Dig over your soil to the depth of your spade, removing weeds and debris as you go.
Improve the soil by adding compost or well-rotted manure.
Make a furrow about 15cm deep, sprinkle a little fertiliser into the base, then refill
soil to almost the original level. Firm down and water well.

2. Sowing

The ideal sowing depth is about twice the diameter of the seed. Sow seed along your furrow at the desired/recommended spacing. Cover over your seeds with fine soil or seed raising mix.



3. Care

Keep soil moist until seeds start to germinate.
Thin out newly emerged seedlings at the two-leaf stage to prevent over crowding, leaving the strongest plants to mature.
Apply a liquid fertiliser at regular intervals (starting with a half dose on young plants) to encourage strong and vigorous growth.
