Seedlings/Pricking out

• Pick out seedlings once they are large enough to handle. Hold seedlings by the leaves to avoid damage and tease out root using a dibber or pencil.

• Plant seedlings apart to allow for growth. Water regularly until the seeds are ready to be potted on.

• Water plant well and allow to drain before potting. Allow enough space to accommodate the roots.

• Remove from pot and plant in container, firming the compost gently around the roots.

• Once fully planted, water well.

Taking cuttings

• Make a sloping cut in the stem of the cutting and remove all bottom leaves.

• Dip the end of the cutting in a hormone rooting powder to encourage rooting.

• Make a hole in the compost with a pencil/dibber.

• Place cutting in the hole and firm compost gently around it.

• Cover the tray with polythene or glass to prevent drying out and place in a warm spot, away from direct sunlight until the cuttings have taken.
