How to guide for Planting your seeded labels

Step 1: 

Tear up the paper into smaller chunks, soak them well in water for half a minute.

step 2: 

Plant the soaked paper under a very thin layer of soil, water them each day to keep moist but don't over water them. Place in the sunniest, warmest place in your house.

Step 3: 

Once you see some shoots, allow them to get stronger before planting outside in Spring or Autumn. Germination could take up to a few weeks.

 

Tips to get the most out of your seeded labels

 

Tip 1

Place a compostable or biodegradable see-through bag over the plant pot (please don’t do this if you are using biodegradable pots) to create a greenhouse effect.

Make sure to leave enough air to flow through, otherwise your paper will rot. This could make your germination a bit faster plus the bag keeps the moisture in so you would not need to water it as often. 

 

Tip 2

If you do not have a bag keep checking the soil with your finger to make sure it is not drying out and keep watering it every day. 

Tip 3

Best to put the pot onto your warmest windowsill away from radiator heat, but please note seedlings do not have the strength to survive a brief drought so try to keep your window shut.
