    Where can I use Seed & Cutting Mix?

    Growing seedlings in the correct position will improve your success. When seedlings are young some shade is required and then as seedlings grow they prefer more sunlight. Place seedling tray where the air can circulate to avoid fungal diseases such as damping off.

    Seed & Cutting Mix can be used in seedling trays, recycled plastic containers (like yoghurt and butter tubs), or directly into garden beds.

    How do I use Seed & Cutting Mix?

    Use in Seedling Trays:

    1. Fill the seedling tray/container to a depth of 3-5 cm.
    2. Sow the seeds in the mix as per seed packet recommendations and instructions.
    3. Cover the seeds with a dressing of the mix and firm down lightly.
    4. Lightly water the seedlings, ensuring no run off that may wash away the seeds.
    5. Covering the seedling tray is recommended to keep the moisture level consistent which can be done easily with cling wrap. Remove once seedlings have emerged.
    6. Place the seedling tray in a warm location, away from direct sunlight. Keep moist by misting as necessary.
    7. Once the seeds have germinated slowly introduce them to more sunlight and once they have at least two leaves they are ready to be transplanted.

    Sowing Directly into Garden Beds:

    1. Flatten out the seed bed with a rake and then create a channel approximately 5cm deep and fill with Seed & Cutting Mix
    2. Sow the seeds in the Seed & Cutting Mix as per seed packet recommendations and instructions.
    3. Cover the seeds with a dressing of the mix and firm down lightly.
    4. Lightly water the seedlings, ensuring no run off that may wash away the seeds.
    5. Keep the mix in the channel and surrounding area moist until complete germination occurs and water the young plants as required.

    Growing from Cuttings:

    1. Pick the healthiest part of the desired plant to take a cutting from.
    2. Fill a seedling, cell tray or pot with at least 5cm of Seed & Cutting Mix or 2-3cm from the top of the container.
    3. Make a hole with a pencil and insert approximately 2-3cm of the stem into the mix and firm down lightly. A rooting hormone is recommended to use on the base of the cut stem before placing in the hole.
    4. Water well and place the newly planted cuttings in a warm, controlled environment like a greenhouse. Ensure the mix is always moist but do not overwater.
    5. Once the cutting has established, transplant them into Rocky Point’s Premium Potting Mix.
