Sowing seeds

• It is best to carry out from March to June, paying attention to the recommendations given on seed packaging

• We fill a pot or container for sowing seeds with sowing and quilting substrate

• Lightly knead so that the surface is 1-2 cm below the edge

• Very small seeds, e.g. begonias, are well mixed with dry sand, which will facilitate even sowing on the ground for sowing and quilting

• Larger seeds after pouring into a pot partially filled with substrate, cover with a very thin layer of quilting and sowing substrate

• Some seeds (begonia, marinade, impatiens, lettuce, petunia) should not be covered with substrate, only lightly pressed into the ground

• Wet the substrate thoroughly, preferably with a sprayer, so as not to rinse out the seeds

• We cover the pot with foil, glass or transparent plastic and place it in a warm (18-20ºC) and sunny place

• Everyday wearer, removing the cover

• When the first seedlings appear, we discover the flowerpot

• Regularly watering when the surface of the earth dries

• Densely growing seedlings should be quilted

Quilting seedlings

• When seedlings begin to contact leaves and form more than two leaves, they should be quilted, because they may become thin and very long due to lack of light

• To ensure that young seedlings endure transmission better, we water them a few hours before transplanting

• Prepare small holes in a tray or pot filled with sowing and quilting substrate

• When the cuttings are large enough, we carefully remove them and plant them in prepared places, compacting the soil slightly

• Distances between seedlings should be approximately equal to their height

• We plant as deeply as they grew before

• After planting, abundantly but gently water

• After 3 weeks we start fertilizing with minimal doses of fertilizers

Transplanting herbs

• Choose a clean pot with drain holes - larger than the root ball

• Pour the drainage to the bottom of the pot (e.g. expanded clay), then partially supplement with sowing and quilting substrate

• Insert the plant and fill the pot up to 2 cm below the edge of the pot
• After transplanting, lightly knead the substrate and water moderately
• It is recommended to start fertilization 6–8 weeks after transplanting

• Herbs prefer well sunny places

Practical advice

• Sowing boxes should be kept at the constant temperature and humidity possible
• A change in the color of the substrate indicates the state of its humidity and the need for watering

• Excessive watering can lead to the development of algae in the soil
