HOW TO USE

Sowing seeds

Fill a clean seed tray with Seed Raising & Cutting Mix, level off with your hand, firm lightly and water with a fine, gentle spray
Sow seeds thinly and evenly as per seed packet instructions. Cover the seeds if required with their own depth of mix, pressing lightly to ensure they remain in the mix and will not be washed off
Place the tray in a warm location away from direct sunlight. Keep consistently moist to the touch by periodic misting
After seedlings have formed their second set of new leaves, transplant the new plants into larger pots or outdoor containers using Scotts Osmocote® Professional Premium Plus Potting Mix


Establishing cuttings

Take a cutting in the appropriate way for the type of plant you are propagating
Fill a pot with Seed Raising & Cutting Mix to within 2-3cm of the rim
Using a dibble (about pencil thickness) make a hole in the mix and insert the cutting to about one third its length and firm in place by pinching the mix with your fingers
Several cuttings can usually be placed into the one pot but don't overcrowd them - allow room for root and leaf/shoot growth
Water well and keep the pot in a warm place out of direct sunlight. Enclose the cuttings in a plastic bag or similar held in place around the pot's rim with an elastic band to create a mini-greenhouse that will retain humidity
Keep consistently moist - remove the bag and mist the mix if required
After a few weeks, test the cuttings by very gently pulling on them one at a time, Any resistance means roots are forming
When cuttings have developed good roots, report individually or plant out into the garden, depending on the time of year and type of plant being raised


WHEN TO USE

Whenever seedlings or cuttings are to be grown
