Sun, soil, water. The rule of three. For plants to grow, each of these elements needs to be right. The three interact and support each other, and you simply can’t have a thriving garden without perfecting all three. This rule is the key to your success, whether it be growing vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, pasture or grains, and no matter where you are located in the world.
We believe that if you give your plants an optimal environment, they will grow faster, produce more and produce for longer. We are constantly giving our plants so much love that they never get stressed. If your plants are never stressed, they never need to spend time recovering, and therefore get to direct all of their energy into giving you higher yields. Everybody wins.
Master sun, soil and water and you’re most of the way there!
Step-by-step guide to growing seedlings
Prepare your trays
Prepare your trays or pots by filling them with your chosen growing medium, and then pre-soak the soil with water so that it’s already moist for your seeds. Don’t miss this step – pre-soaking is key.
Prepare your seeds
Place your seeds to a depth equivalent to the length of the seed, and brush some earth back over them. For big seeds, like pumpkin, that’s 1 cm. For tiny seeds, like oregano, you basically sprinkle them on top and brush your hand over them to incorporate with the soil. Try and space seeds out in a 3 cm grid. This is completely impossible for tiny seeds, so, in their case, just do your best not to sow too many seeds in each tray – remember that each seed is a potential plant. Do not press down on the seeds, as this will only compress the soil and make it more difficult for the young roots to grow.
