Directions for use

Sowing in garden beds

  1. Add a layer of Tui Seed Raising Mix to the sowing area.
  2. Make shallow furrows in the mix, and water well.
  3. Sow the seed as directed on the packet.
  4. Lightly cover with Tui Seed Raising Mix.
  5. Press soil gently.
  6. Water lightly and regularly.

Sowing in containers and trays

  1. Fill your container with Tui Seed Raising Mix up to 1cm from the top.
  2. Water lightly to ensure mix is moist.
  3. Sow the seed as directed on the packet.
  4. Lightly cover with Tui Seed Raising Mix.
  5. Cover your container with glass or a light plastic bag to retain moisture and warmth for germination and place in a warm spot.
  6. Water lightly and regularly.
  7. As seedlings begin to develop harden them off by putting them outside at intervals. This helps limit transplant shock when you plant them out.
  8. 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.
