When should I plant seeds - sowing pepper seeds in Nurture compost

Updated: May 8, 2023

When should I plant seeds. Chris starts off with the pepper seeds, planting them in Nurture multi purpose compost, ready for a summer harvest. Nurture compost range is ideal for seeds. The consistent, open structure of compost ensures that the seeds grow and thrive to their maximum potential. The best time to plant seeds depends on the type of seed and your climate. Some seeds need to be planted in the spring, while others can be planted in the fall. You can find planting instructions on the back of the seed packet.

Here are some additional tips for planting seeds:

  • Prepare the soil before planting. Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter to improve drainage and fertility.

  • Remove any weeds from the planting area. Weeds compete with plants for water, nutrients, and sunlight.

  • Water the soil before planting. This will help to settle the soil and create a moist environment for the seeds to germinate.

  • Plant the seeds at the correct depth. Planting seeds too deep or too shallow will reduce their chances of germination.

  • Label the seeds. This will help you to remember what type of seeds you have planted and when they should be harvested.

  • Thin the seedlings. Once the seedlings have sprouted, thin them out so that there is only one seedling per pot or per square inch of space.

  • Fertilize the seedlings. Once the seedlings have two sets of leaves, fertilize them with a balanced fertilizer.

  • Water the seedlings regularly. Seedlings need to be kept moist but not soggy.

  • Protect the seedlings from pests and diseases. Monitor the seedlings for signs of pests and diseases, and take steps to control them if necessary.

  • Harvest the plants when they are ready. Different plants have different harvest times. Be sure to harvest your plants when they are ripe and flavorful.
