New World Little Gardens

Your seedling kit

Each Little Garden seedling kit contains everything you need to get growing:

  • A seed mat or seeds – a small number of seeds of the same plant type e.g. herb or vegetable, either embedded in biodegradable paper or in a sachet
  • A soil tablet – a brown dehydrated growing medium pressed into a compact round shape
  • A biodegradable pot – a small, fully biodegradable seedling pot for putting the soil and seeds into
  • A label – a coloured label that will identify what’s growing in each pot

 

How to plant your Little Garden seed mat seedling kits

  1. Put the soil tablet on a saucer or in a container and pour 50ml (10 teaspoons) of water over it.
  2. With gloves on, use your fingers to mix the water into the soil, make a wet mixture and watch it expand.
  3. Use most of this to fill up the pot about 2/3rd full.
  4. Place the seed mat on top of this – but don’t push down too hard.
  5. Put the rest of the soil on top and cover the seed mat. Some seed likes to be buried deeply, others will do best just lightly covered with soil. The depth that suits each seed type is covered here
  6. Wash your hands.

How to plant your Little Garden seed sachet seedling kits

  1. Put the soil tablet on a saucer and pour 50ml of water over it.
  2. Put on gloves and mix the water into the soil with your hands to make a wet mixture and watch the soil expand.
  3. Use most of your soil to fill up the pot about 2/3rd full.
  4. Carefully tear open the sachet and place the seeds on top of the soil (take care not to press down too hard).
  5. Now use the remaining soil mixture to cover the seeds. Some seed likes to be buried deeply, others will do best just lightly covered with soil. The depth that suits each seed type is covered here
  6. Wash your hands.
