     Growing seeds indoors                                                                  <<Back to Maternity Ward

Operating Theatre
 
  • Fill a seed tray container with some standard seed sowing compost
  • Firm down the compost using a presser board, a tamper or you could use your hand.
  • Sow the seeds onto the surface
  • Cover the seeds by sieving on some compost
  • Water the seed tray with a watering can that has a fine rose nozzle attached, you could also use a mist sprayer
  • Cover over the tray with some cling-film,  clear polythene sheet or a pane of glass.
 
If you have seeds that need to germinate in the dark then just place sheets of newspaper on top, Seeds that  need extra warmth as well as darkness to germinate can be placed in your airing cupboard if you have room.  If you have money to spend you could purchase a heated propagator  for inside your home or greenhouse.
 
  • Keep a daily check on the new seeds for signs of growth and remember to keep the moist using a mist sprayer.
  • Once the seedlings appear, remove the newspaper , glass or polythene and place the tray in a well-lit area.
  • Its important to spray the seedling with water regularly, but don't allow the compost to become water-logged.

It's a good idea at this stage if you water in a fungicide to help prevent damping-off diseases

Note  To assist germination and establishment you can before sowing large seeds soak the seeds in water for 12 to 24 hours.
