Gardening Tip & Tricks



Place the soil discs in a bowl or on a plate. Add 1/3 cup of water on top. Allow 30 second for the soil to expand, then spread it out in and even layer. If part of the soil remains dry, add more water in 1 TBSP increments until its fully expanded.


Sprinkle the seeds on top of the soil. Barely cover the seeds with soil; they need light to germinate. Mist the soil daily to keep it moist but not wet. Be careful not to water too intensely; too much water will disturb the seeds, pushing them down into the soil where they will not be able to germinate. Strawberry seeds are slow to germinate. Expect to wait at least 14 days for tiny leaves to pop out of the soil. Continue to mist the soil, not allowing it to dry out, and providing plenty of light as you wait.


Sunflowers should be planted 1 to 1½ inches deep and about 6 inches apart. Water your sunflower seedlings regularly.


Place two or three seeds into each peat pot 1/4 inch deep. Cover up your seeds and pat them down gently to make a good seal on top of the seeds. Water to ensure good seed-to-mix contact. You don't need to soak the soil, just moisten the top layer. Place the pots in a warm spot. At this point, the seeds don't need light. Keep the mix moist but not soaking wet.


Cover your peat pots with plastic wrap for 48 hours, no need to add more water during this time. Covering your seeds will help keeps seeds moist and gives them the best chance to grow!

Water every day 1-3 TBSP depending on how dry the soil is.
