How to plant seedlings

Jun 07, 2016

After purchasing seed trays, place them in a shady spot and water well before planting.

 

Check the label as to where the seedlings should be planted and follow these instructions 

 

dig over the bed to about 15cm.

 

break up any hard clods and remove weeds or grass

 

Add compost and dig in well.

 

Add a sprinkling of bone meal and fertilizer for seedlings. Rake over.

 

Push the seedling out from the bottom of the tray, through the drainage hole, and gently lift out never tug them from the top.

 

To plant, make a hole in the same depth as the seed tray.

 

Close the hole, Dont pack too much soil around the stems but process soil down firmly around the base of the plant.

 

Look after your annuals. Water regularly, but do not over water them.

 

also provide the plants with nutrients through the flowering season.

 

A fortnightly application of liquid fertilizer (depending on the product you choose) is usually sufficient.

 

Deadhead regularly to encourage more blooms.
