GENERAL ADVICE FOR PLANTING YOUR SEEDS
Tips For Sowing Large Seeds
Larger seeds such as those of flowers like Nasturtiums, Sweet Peas and Sunflowers and vegetables such as Beans, Peas, Corn and Pumpkins are usually best sown directly into the garden where they will grow. The soil should be prepared to a fine surface, free from lumps and stones, and should be lightly moist prior to planting. Sow the seeds according to the recommended spacing at a depth of 3-6cm. Firm the seed down and gently water.
Tips For Small Seeds
Seeds that you can comfortably pick up individually are what we would call 'small seeds' and these include true favourites like tomatoes, capsicums, radishes, spinach and beetroot. These can be sown direct but in the case of tomatoes and capsicums which require warmth to germinate, they are best sown into a seed tray with good quality seed-raising mix. Place the trays in a warm position and keep the seeds moist but not wet until they germinate. Once they reach a suitable size, you can move them into larger pots or into the garden if the weather is good.
Tips For Tiny Seeds
There are some seeds such as Carrots, Lettuces, Snapdragons, Begonias and Petunias whose seeds are tiny and tricky to sow individually. Some of them are almost as fine as dust and can be sown by 'dusting' over the surface of fine, moist seed-raising mix. Fine-seeded vegies like Carrots can be sprinkled into prepared rows of fine soil or you can also mix the seed with fine dry sand to space the seeds out. If sowing into trays, the young seedlings should be 'pricked out' or moved into trays with larger cells so that you can grow the young plants up to a good size before planting into the garden.
