- 1 Pencil and notepad – always a good plan to jot down your sowing dates, progress and good intentions..
- Plant Labels – no, you won’t remember what’s in each pot! Always label them..
- 8cm coir pots x 4 – for sowing some of your seeds in to
- Compost Discs x 4 – one for each pot (they bulk out when you add water)
- A little grow your own Guide (we’ve stuffed it with loads of stuff we’ve learned about growing)
Where to grow them:
- We recommend sowing the seeds on a windowsill inside your house to start. Put them somewhere sunny. They will look amazing.
- When the seedlings get a little bigger, we will be moving them in to bigger pots to grow them either inside or outside on your balcony, terrace, patio or veg patch.
- Remember, most veg do better in warm, sunny locations – just like humans really.
