How to Use

First put on a pair of gloves and rework the compost between your hands to reconstitute. Then you’re all set.
Seed sowing
A pair of hands over a seed tray, one hand is holding seeds, the other is sowing them into the seed tray.
  • Place compost in a tray or pot and fill to just below the rim
  • Tap down the compost with a board or level tool to give a flat even surface
  • Water the compost thoroughly and allow to drain. Sow the seeds evenly over the whole surface
  • Cover the seeds evenly with a thin layer of compost and water using a watering can with a fine rose
  • Ensure the compost is kept moist by covering the seeds with a thin layer of polythene or a sheet of glass until the seeds have germinated
  • Keep seeds out of direct sunlight
Feeding
Gro-Sure Seed & Cutting Compost contains sufficient nutrients for the seedlings to grow until they are ready for pricking out. This usually takes 3-4 weeks.
Pricking out
A pair of hands pricking out seedlings from a seed tray with a dibber.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle, remove them from the seed tray with a dibber or pencil and place into pots or trays of Gro-Sure All Purpose Compost.
Cuttings
A pair of hands taking a cutting from a plant using a knife.
  • Take the cutting by making a sloping cut, with a sharp knife, in the stem and removing all of the bottom leaves
  • To encourage rooting, dip the end of the cutting into a hormone rooting powder
  • Fill pot/tray with compost and water well
  • Making a hole in the compost with a pencil/dibber, place the cutting into the hole and gently firm the compost around it, ensuring good contact of the compost with the submerged cutting
  • Water thoroughly
Do not place cuttings too close together. Place polythene or glass over the pot/tray to reduce moisture loss, ensuring the leaves do not touch. Place in a warm environment, out of direct sunlight until the cuttings have taken.
Watering
Keep compost moist, never allow to dry out. Water using a watering can with a fine rose.
