Funky Vegetable Kit - How to Grow

Using the growing pellets

  • Moisten the compost first
  • Sow each seed in narrow rows along the surface of the compost
  • Spread a thin layer of compost over the seeds & firm down gently
  • Place propagation lid over the tray

Funky Vegetable Kit - General Care of Seedlings

Watering

  • Keep compost moist at all times
  • Ideally water 2 or 3 times a week
  • Just add enough water to moisten the soil
  • Do not allow the soil get overly wet

Feeding

  • Start feeding once the seedlings are 2 weeks old
  • Apply a liquid feed to the seedlings each time you water

Transplanting

  • Take care when transplanting carrot seedlings - It is very important to minimise root disturbance
    • Would be best to sow the carrot seeds directly in the ground
  • Start transplanting seedlings when they are large enough
  • Generally mid April is a good time to start
  • Once your seedlings are large enough to handle & the weather is suitably warm
  • Transplant into prepared vegetable plot
  • Spacing, depth & specific soil conditions vary depending on vegetable
