Growing vegetables is an excellent way to save money. Growing your own means that you know that no chemicals have been involved and it’s surprisingly easy to grow!
When Your Vegetable Plants Arrive
After spraying the plants ensure they are then placed in an area where there is adequate airflow. This helps dry the excess water from the leaves and prevents potential problems caused by damp. There may be some loose compost or a slight yellowing of the leaves which is a consequence of the plants being shipped. This will not affect the condition of the mature plants
|•||Upon arrival, keep the trays indoors in a well lit, draught free area for 24 hours.|
|•||If the compost is a little dry, stand the tray in shallow water.|
|•||Once the compost is moist allow the tray to drain.|
|•||If unable to water from beneath, spray water lightly over the tray.|
|•||If required, repeat the process several times to ensure that the compost receives sufficient moisture.|
Growing on and Planting Out
When removing plants from trays, push up from the bottom using a pencil or similar implement to avoid damaging the plants.
IMPORTANT: Do not plant your vegetable plants outside if there is a danger of frost.
