An ideal mix with added fertiliser to boost seedling growth. Ideal for seedling trays. Suitable for vegetables, flowers and herbs.

Raising seed in containers:
Step 1: Fill the container with Yates Seed Raising Mix to 1cm below rim of container. Mix should be moist.
Step 2: Level and gently firm the mix.
Step 3: Space seed as directed.
Step 4: Lightly cover with thin layer of Seed Raising Mix. Very small seeds, or seeds requiring light to germinate, may be simply pushed into the surface.
Step 5: Water with a fine mist so as to not dislocate or float the seeds.
Step 6: Place in a lightly shaded or dappled sun position. Cover fine seeds with glass or plastic to help maintain even temperature and moisture.
Step 7: When seeds have germinated, remove the covering and move into stronger light and eventually more sunlight to harden off the seedlings.
Step 8: Keep moist but not wet and do not let dry right out.
Step 9: Transplant seedlings when they are big enough to easily handle or roots are starting to show through bottom of tray.
Successful propagation of cuttings requires warm, moist and humid conditions.

Step 6: Water well and allow to drain.
Step 7: Enclose in plastic or glass to maintain humidity and warmth. Avoid the cover touching leaves.
Step 8: Place in a warm position and good light but not direct sun. Keep moist but not wet.
