Throw and Grow Seed Pack
- Store the labelled seed packets in an airtight container with some desiccant to remove excess moisture. Suitable materials include calcium chloride (sold in DIY stores for use in dehumidifiers) or silica gel.
- Seeds stored in a refrigerator should be placed near the back of the fridge where they will be less exposed to temperature fluctuations from opening and closing the door. Storing seeds in the freezer will provide seeds with more consistent temperatures than refrigerator storage.
For optimum planting, mix the seeds with either sand of vermiculite to give a better distribution when sowing. The packet contains sufficent seeds to cover 1-2m spread.
Ideally sow/throw the seeds in a prepared seed bed or pot towards the end of April through to June. Please note the seeds will be less successful in either established lawn or meadow.
Cover the seeds lightly with soil and water well, keeping the soil moist to encourage germination
Reduce competition by removing weeds when recognised/visible.
The Throw and Grow 'Summer Picking' contains approx 19 annuals - from Asters, Cornflowers, Cosmos, Mallow to Zinnia. As with nature, there is no guarantee of 100% germination.
