Directions for use

Directions for sowing in garden beds:

  • Make shallow furrows in the soil.
  • Place 2cm of Tui Organic Seed Raising Mix in the bottom of the furrows and water.
  • Sow the seed as directed on the packet.
  • Lightly cover with Tui Organic Seed Raising Mix.
  • Press soil gently.
  • Water lightly and regularly.

Directions for sowing in containers & seed raising trays:

  • Fill your container with Tui Organic Seed Raising Mix up to 1cm from the top.
  • Tap the container gently on the ground to settle the mix.
  • Water lightly to ensure mix is moist.
  • Sow the seed as directed on the packet.
  • Lightly cover with Tui Organic Seed Raising Mix.
  • Cover your container with glass or a light plastic bag to retain moisture and warmth for germination.
  • Place in a warm spot with natural light.
  • Water lightly and regularly.
  • As seedlings begin to develop harden them off by putting them outside at intervals. This helps limit transplant shock when you plant them out.
  • Transplant seedlings into a suitable planting mix once they have two sets of true leaves.

Once in the garden small seedlings are vulnerable to the weather, slugs and snails. Protect with a cloche, and Tui Quash slug & snail control.

To get the most from your seeds and seedlings we recommend supplementary feeding with a suitable fertiliser.
