  • If sowing fine seed, gently firm down mix.
  • Sow seeds as per instructions.
  • Cover seeds with mix to a depth approximately that of the seeds sown.
  • Gently water tray with fine spray to ensure even moistness. Keep tray moist but not wet. Do not over-water.              

Direct sowing:

  • Prepare garden beds where seeds are to be sown.
  • Blend Seed Raising Mix with garden soil to approximately 5 cm depth.
  • Sow seeds as per instructions.

FOR PROPAGATION

1 Fill seedling tray, pots or cell tray with the mix. Water thoroughly and allow to drain.
2 Pick the healthiest part of the stem and slice diagonally just below the leaf node.
3 Cut the stems into 5–8cm long lengths, ensuring there are still 2 or 3 nodes remaining.
4 Trim the leaves off the lower two-thirds of the stem.
5 Use a rooting hormone on the base of the cut stem.
6 Make a hole in the mix with a pencil, insert at least 2–3cm of the stem into the mix and firm gently.
7 Water well and place in a sheltered location or greenhouse. Remember to keep the propagation mix moist but do not over water.
8 Once the cuttings have established roots to about 2–3cm long, transfer into a pot using a premium quality potting mix.

When to use Debco Seed Raising Mix

Use Debco Seed Raising Mix at any time of the year, according to the germination requirements of the seed. Follow the recommendations on the seed packet.

How to use Debco Seed Raising Mix

When seedlings start to grow, incorporate some soluble fertiliser, such as Debco Water Soluble All Purpose into your watering program to assist growth and development.Hints
