Have you ever grown veggies from seed?
It’s incredibly satisfying!
Radishes, cherry tomatoes, nasturtiums, rocket, swiss chard and beetroot are just a few plants that are extremely easy to grow.
How you sow them depends on the size of the seed:
- Small seeds (e.g. lettuce and carrots): mix compost and seedling foods into the soil and use a flat piece of wood to level the ground. Mist the soil with water and thinly sprinkle the small seeds on top. Cover with a thin layer of compost and seedling mix. Mist again.
- Medium seeds (e.g. swiss chard): make a furrow twice as deep as the diameter of the seed. Spread the seeds in the furrows, cover with compost and seedling mix, and water well.
- Large seeds (e.g. beans and squash): simply poke holes twice the depth of the seed diameter into the soil. Drop the seeds in, cover, press the soil down firmly and water well.
