SEED SOWING ADVICE: QUICK & EASY
Suitable for beginners and gardening with kids
Sow seed at any time of year in punnets indoors / or scatter directly in the garden during winter-spring.
First sow the seed in a punnets on the surface of good quality seed raising mix.
Now pat very gently to the surface of the mix, to ensure good contact. L
But only very barely cover the seed with some sieved mix.
Because these seeds need good light for germination.
Now moisten the punnet thoroughly by standing it in a shallow water bath.
And allowing the moisture to percolate to the surface of the mix from below.
Then place the moist, sown punnet in a warm, well-lit position (not in direct sunlight).
You can use a heat mat if you have one, but it is not essential as these seeds are willing germinators if kept warm.
Temperatures of 20°C approx. best for rapid and optimum germination.
Continue to keep the punnet moist.
Seedlings emerge approx. 14-30 days.
However if the seeds are shy to sprout after 30 days – it means the seeds have gone naturally dormant and want a period of chilling to break their dormancy.
So wrap the moist, sown punnet in cling-wrap.
And place in the fridge (not freezer) for 4 weeks.
Then remove, unwrap, & return to warm, well-lit position.
