Can i plant seeds

I purchased cayenne pepper seeds cucumber seeds and capsicum seeds. I put them in seed trays but this wasn't successful. When its a bit warmer can i just plant them direct in the garden instead of starting in seed trays now?

Answer: Hi Vanessa,

Thank you for contacting Yates, we would recommend sow chilly and Capsicum seeds into a seed raising tray with premium seed raising mix this would improve the germination rate, as both chillies and capsicum are susceptible to transplant shock, you may try the biodegradable pot. With cucumber seeds, they can be sow direct to your veggies patch, make sure dig in some Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food before planting, which is a manure based organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Louise
