How your seeds arrive to you
Your flower seeds arrive to you in a well-sealed seed packet – with lots of information including sowing instructions and helpful tips. Check the sell-by-date and check all instructions on the seed packet are clear and legible. When it comes to sowing check the number of seeds, where plausible, within the pack.
As a rule of thumb when your seedlings have developed around four leaves it’s time to move them to their final position. At this stage they are ready to give you flowering stems from making use of the nutrients in the soil.
This is really rewarding as you get tons of potential plants for great value. You can keep seeds for a long time- even buying them out of season and waiting until the appropriate time of year. Read our guide on how to get successful flowers from seed.
