  5. Press soil gently.

Sowing in containers and trays

  2. Water lightly to ensure mix is moist.
  3. Sow the seed as directed on the packet.
  4. Lightly cover with Tui Seed Raising Mix.
  5. Cover your container with glass or a light plastic bag to retain moisture and warmth for germination and place in a warm spot.
