How to Get the Best From Bedding-Plant Seedlings

Seedlings Water the seedlings well and then leave to drain. Loosen the surrounding compost from the roots with a ‘dibber’ and lift out individually. Pot into 9cm pots.
Larger ‘plug’ plants Water and leave to drain. Relocate into 9cm pots for growing on, or plant directly into baskets and indoor pots.
Aftercare Carefully water in seedlings or plug plants using a watering can prevent damage.
Growing on Keep plants in bright light, preferably at 16-18 degrees until they are about to be potted.
Nutrients Feed plug plants with balanced liquid fertiliser fortnightly, seedlings monthly.
Hardening off Progressively let plants get used to cold, and keep on growing outdoors, once all danger of frost has passed.
