How do you use it?
For Seed Sowing
For certain seed types sieve the compost to <4mm first or you may wish to try the Field No.7 seed compost. Firstly, fill a seed tray or plant pot, level and gently firm down below the rim of the container. Sow seeds according to the suppliers recommendations. Water gently and keep moist and warm within a purpose built propagator or under a sheet of clear glass/polythene. Keep warm and shaded until germination takes place, then remove covering and place in warm sun lit area, avoiding direct sun light. Water and feed as necessary following seed supplier’s instructions.
Make sure the plant has been well watered and left to drain before re-potting. Choose a pot at least 4cm larger than the existing one. Fill the new container up just below the level of the existing plant root ball, then carefully place the plant on top leaving about 1 cm below the rim. Fill and gently firm the void space around the root ball with Field 3, then feed and water according to the plants requirement.
Remember to keep Field No.23 moist at all times - do not let it dry out and equally do not overwater!
