Preparation and Usage
How do I use it? First put on a pair of gloves and rework the compost between your hands to reconstitute. Then you're all set.
Seed Sowing Place compost, in a tray or pet and fill to just below the rim. Tap down the compost with a board or level tool to give a flat even surface. Water the compost thoroughly and allow to drain. Sow the seeds evenly over the whole surface. Cover seeds evenly with a thin layer of compost and water using a watering can with a fine rose. Ensure that the compost is kept moist by covering the seeds with a thin layer of polythene or a sheet of glass until the seeds have germinated. Keep seeds out of direct sunlight. Top Tip: Seeds need three things to germinate successfully - heat, water and air. If any of these are missing germination will be poor.
Pricking Out When the seedlings are large enough to handle, remove them from the seed tray with a dibber or pencil and place them in pots or trays of Westland Gro-Sure All Purpose Compost. Always pick up seedlings by their leaves, rather than their stems as this causes less damage.
Cuttings Take cuttings by making a sloping cut, with a sharp knife, in the stem and removing all of the bottom leaves. To encourage rooting, dip the end of the cutting in hormone rooting powder. Fill pot/ tray with compost and water well. Making a hole in the compost with a pencil/ dibber place the cutting into the hole and gently firm the compost around it, ensuring good contact of the compost with the submerged cutting. Water thoroughly. 1. Do not place cuttings too close together. 2. Place glass or polythene over the pot/ tray to reduce moisture loss, ensuring the leaves do not touch the glass or polythene. 3. Place in warm environment out of direct sunlight until cuttings have taken.
Aftercare Feeding Gro-Sure Seed & Cutting Compost contains sufficient nutrients for the seedlings to grow until they are ready for pricking out, this usually take 2-3 weeks.
Watering Keep compost moist. Never allow to dry out. Water using a watering can with a fine rose.
Handy Gardening Tips Re-work compost between hands before use to re-constitute. Wear gloves when handling. Reseal bag after use. Wash hands after use.
