Nurture your seeds with Debco Seed & Cutting Mix
Debco Seed & Cutting Mix has been professionally formulated to provide a light, loosely textured medium ideally suited for effective seed germination and the propagation of cuttings.
It contains a balanced mixture of ingredients designed and tested to give the ideal ratio of moisture retention, soil aeration and drainage. When packed it is moist and thoroughly mixed ready for use. Should it become dry and the ingredients separated, moisten gently and mix by hand.
HOW TO USE
Seedling boxes or trays:
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.
