How To Sow Seeds In Pots. What You Should Learn-minmi

Landscaping-Gardening There is something immensely satisfying about putting a seed, which is often no larger than a speck of dust, in the ground, knowing that it will eventually grow into a gorgeous plant. This is the basic miracle of nature, and yet although you may plant hundreds of seeds each year, every tiny seedling still seems just as wonderful as the last. One of the main mistakes made by beginners is to sow too much seed. Unless you are creating a large bedding scheme, you rarely need more than a dozen plants and often, in the case of perennials, only three or five (off numbers always look better than even ones in the garden). Of course, you should grow a few more than you need incase some die, and you may want extras for giving away. If you grow many more than you need, however, you will waste a lot of time pricking the plants out as well as the expense of extra pots and potting .post (soil mix), most of which will end up on the .post heap. For most purposes, you need sow no more than what a 9cm pot will contain, and very rarely indeed will you need a half tray, let alone a whole tray. Fill the pot to the rim with .post (soil mix) and then gently firm it down. Do not ram it down, or it will .pact. Sow the seeds thinly across the surface. In the case of large seeds, such as sunflowers, each seed can be placed individually so that they are equidistantly spaced. Cover the seeds, preferably with a layer of horticultural grit, but alternatively with a thin layer of fine .post if grit is not available. At this stage, remember to label the pot, as one pot of seeds looks very much like another, and you will soon forget which is which. Water the pot either from below, by standing it in a tray of water until the surface of the .post changes color, or from above, by using a fine raised watering can. Place the pot in a propagator or in a shady place in a greenhouse.
