Different seeds have different needs, always follow sowing instructions on the seed packet.
Fill a seed tray or pot with Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost and firm it gently. Sow the seeds according to the instructions on the pack and then water the compost.
When the seedlings have at least one pair of leaves move them to new trays or pots to allow more space to grow. Fill a suitable container with Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost and firm gently. Make a series of holes the width of a finger and about 5cm (2in) apart. Lift each seedling gently by its leaves (not roots), place it carefully in one of the holes and firm the compost around it, making sure not to damage the stem.
When you have filled all the holes, water the compost thoroughly, place the tray or pot in a light position but away from direct sunlight.
Make a clean, angled cut below a leaf and then remove the lower leaves from the cutting. Dip the cut end in a rooting powder, following manufacturer’s instructions. Fill a pot with Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost, make a hole in the compost and insert the cutting. Carefully firm the compost around the cutting with your fingertips.
Water gently. Cover the cutting and pot with a clear plastic bag to retain moisture and keep out of direct sunlight. Only water when the compost feels dry or if the cutting starts to wilt.
Partly fill the new, larger pot with Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost. Remove the plant from the old pot. Place the plant in the new pot, making sure the plant is at the same level as it was in the original pot and fill the pot with compost, firming lightly. Water the compost thoroughly. Do not over water, as this can cause leaching of nutrients or water logging.
If necessary line the basket well with an appropriate liner. Half fill the basket with Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost. After selecting the appropriate plant colour scheme, work through plant structure i.e. tall plants for centre, trailing plants at edges, as well as foliage and colourful plants to give the desired effect you want to create. Fill the basket with plants, working the compost around the root systems one plant at a time. Water the basket thoroughly initially.
For planting out flowers, trees and shrubs, dig a hole that is a few inches wider than the root ball. Add a thick layer of Richmoor Multi-Purpose Compost all round the hole. Place the plant in the hole, making sure that the plant is at the same level as it was in the pot i.e. don’t bury the stem. Fill the hole with a 50:50 mixture of compost and soil. Firm the mixture around the plant and water it well.
