FOR SEED GERMINATION
- Fill the tray with mix to within 1cm of the top of the tray and firm gently.
- Make a shallow furrow in the mix to a depth of about 2–3 times the size of the seed.
- Sow seeds into furrow allowing space between seeds for easy transplanting once germinated.
- Thinly cover the seeds with the mixture.
- Lightly water and place tray in a warm sunny location for germination. Avoid very hot conditions and do not allow to dry out.
- Feed with a half strength soluble fertiliser once the new plant has reached 2–3cm tall.
- Plant out seedlings into the garden or pots when established and continue watering and feeding.
- Fill seedling tray, pots or cell tray with the mix. Water thoroughly and allow to drain.
- Cut stems from a healthy plant into 5-8cm long lengths removing the leaves off the lower two-thirds of the stem.
- Use a rooting hormone on the base of the cut stem.
- Make a hole in the mix with a pencil, insert at least 2–3cm of the stem into the mix and firm gently.
- Water well and place in a sheltered location or green house. Remember to keep the propagation mix moist but do not overwater.
- Once the cuttings have established roots to about 2–3cm long, transfer into a pot using a premium quality potting mix.
