Sowing directly outdoors

1)       Use a rake to level the surface and create a crumble-like tilth. At this point remove any weeds or large stones etc.

2)       Water the surface prior to sowing.  This is better than watering over the top of seeds once they are sown as the force of the water can displace the seeds unevenly.  

3)       Thinly scatter the seed over the soil. Pour the seed into the palm then tap lightly with the other hand to distribute the seed evenly over the area of soil.

4)       Use a rake to gently cover the seeds with soil.

5)       Before you forget where the row is and what you’ve sown, place a label in the soil at one end.

6)       Remember to water in dry spells

If you want your plants to germinate quickly you can put down a horticultural fleece over the soil – this helps retain the heat in the soil, and doubles up as protection from hungry seed-eating birds.
