Instructions : Step 1

Place the growing medium pellets in a bowl, add 1-1/2 cup of lukewarm water. The pellets will expand as they absorb the water and turn into growing medium. Fluff the growing medium with a fork, adding more water if necessary.

Instructions : Step 3

Sprinkle approximately 10 seeds over the surface of the growing medium, using one seed variety per pot. Save any remaining seeds for replanting at a later time.

Instructions : Step 2

Add 3/4 of the growing medium to the containers, reserving the rest to cover the seeds.

Instructions : Step 4

Lightly cover the seeds with the remaining growing medium.

Care : Watering

Use a fine mist or gently sprinkle water on top to moisten. Water daily with a fine mist to keep moist. A spray bottle is a perfect tool to water your plants. Do not over water.

Care : Light

Place in a warm, sunny location. For best results, rotate the pot often so all sides receive equal sunlight.

Care : Germination

Germination requires consistent temperature and moisture. To stimulate germination of the seeds, you can cover the pot with a piece of plastic wrap to keep the moisture content higher. Keep growing medium moist, but do not allow it to become soggy as this will cause the seeds to rot. Days to germination: Lavender: 15-20; Coneflower: 14-21.

Care : Transplant

Depending on how many plants you have been able to grow, you want to be sure to 'thin out' the plants to give them enough space to grow in the container. Leave the strongest, healthiest plant in your container. Remove all others. It is best to snip the unwanted plants with a small pair of scissors at ground level. Attempting to pull out the extra seedlings may harm the root system of the seedling you want to keep. Once the remaining seedling reaches 3"-5" in height, transplant it to your garden or to a bigger pot. To transplant, moisten and carefully remove the delicate plant taking special care not to damage the stem or roots while moving. A dinner fork is a great tool to assist you in removing the seedling.

Care : Fertilizer

It is important to feed your plants. Use a standard plant fertilizer when your seedlings are 2"-3" in height and follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging.
