Instructions : Step 1

Place the growing medium pellet in a bowl or cup. Add approximately 1 tablespoon lukewarm water. The pellet will expand as it absorbs the water and turn into growing medium. Fluff with fork, adding more water if necessary.

Instructions : Step 3

Sprinkle no more than 6 seeds evenly over the surface of the growing medium. Save the rest of the seeds for replanting or to plant in your garden.

Instructions : Step 2

Add 3/4 of the growing medium to the container, 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 daily 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: Clover 7-14; Forget-Me-Not 8-18; Marigold: 7-14; Basil 7-14; Parsley 12-21; Sunflower 7-14; Daisy 12-28; Tomato 7-14; Strawberry 10-21.

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.
