HOW TO USE

Seed Sowing:

  • Fill the seed tray or pot and firm gently to just below the rim.
  • Water with a fine rose, then sow seeds thinly and evenly.
  • Follow the recommendations on the seed packet for temperatures, covering the seed and shading.
  • Keep in a warm place until seeds germinate.
  • Remove covering immediately, move into a lighter position and water as necessary.
  • Be careful never to saturate the compost.

Root Cuttings:

  • Fill the pot and insert prepared cuttings, spaced so that the leaves do not touch.  
  • Gently firm the compost around the cuttings.
  • Water in using a fine rose.
  • To maintain humidity, fit a plastic bag over the cuttings.
  • Do not cover hairy leaved plants such as geraniums and saintpaulia.  
  • Keep in a warm, well lit place, out of direct sunlight.
  • Water again only when the compost dries out.

Growing On:

  • Feed with Miracle-Gro Water Soluble Plant Food after 6 weeks.
  • Pot on into individual pots as soon as roots become well developed or as leaves start to touch.
