Hanging Baskets and Containers
For baskets, ensure a suitable liner is used with drainage holes. Half fill the basket with compost and compress slightly, position your plants and cover the roots with compost by filling the remainder of the basket – just up to the rim of the basket. Firm down the compost and water well. For containers, ensure the pot has a drainage hole and fill it half full, compress the compost slightly, position your plants and cover the roots with compost by filling the remainder of the container. Firm down the compost and water well.
Sowing Seeds and Cuttings
Fill trays or pots with compost and firm down slightly. Collect your seeds or cuttings and gently place them in the compost. For seeds, check the recommended sowing depth, for cuttings push the stem of the cutting into the compost to the correct depth. Water well and keep in a warm sheltered position, preferably indoors.
