HOW TO USE

How to Use When Sowing Seeds:

  • Fill a clean seed tray with Levington® Seed & Cutting Compost, level off with your hand or ruler, firm lightly and water using a fine rose.

  • Sow seeds thinly and evenly.  Cover the seeds when necessary with their own depth in compost, firming lightly.  

  • For smaller seeds such as Petunia or Lobelia, there is no need to cover with the Levington® compost.

  • To retain water, cover the seed tray or container with a glass or polythene cover.  Make sure the tray is kept out of direct sunlight.

  • When the seedlings are ready to be transplanted into individual pots, take care to handle them by the leaves and not the stems or roots.

How to Use with Cuttings:

  • Take the cutting in the appropriate way, according to the type of plant.

  • Fill the container with Levington® Seed & Cutting Compost.  Place the cutting in a hole in the compost, firm lightly, water the compost and cover to retain moisture and keep warm.
