Seed Sowing Into Trays

Décor Gardenworld Tauranga - Plants, gifts & café

Here at Décor Gardenworld we have an amazing array of seeds and seedlings to inspire you along with the helpful advice of the friendly Décor team – your garden will look great all year round.  One of the most rewarding aspects of gardening is growing your own plants and watching your outdoor living space transform into something you and your family can be proud of.

Here are a few tips to make sure your seedlings grow into strong healthy plants for your garden.

Always use clean containers, and fresh seed sowing mix.

  • Spread the mix evenly and firmly and level off.
  • Carefully scatter the seed evenly on the surface of the mix and cover evenly to twice their own depth.
  • Water using a fine spray.
  • Cover with a sheet of clear glass.
  • Once germination has occurred remove the glass and water lightly to keep moist.
  • When seedlings have formed their first real leaves, transplant (pricking out) into seed trays or pots.
  • Watch out for slugs and snails - we recommend that you try Quash for protection against these slimy pests.  Quash is a great product if you have pets that are likely to gobble up the dead snails or the Quash pellets, this product is totally safe for pets.  We also recommend Blitzem to control slugs and snails.

If in doubt or you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to call or email us for more information – or drop in and see our friendly helpful staff here at Décor Gardenworld in Bethlehem.
