Have you always wanted to grow a garden, but felt a little too afraid to start because it's confusing, difficult, or you live in an urban area? At Seedsheet, we've made growing your own fresh ingredients ridiculously easy regardless of gardening expertise or limited space.
Planting a Seedsheet is simple; check out these essential steps below to start growing!
Fill your garden container with fresh, organic potting soil until it is filled almost entirely to the top and gently pat to level. To prevent extreme soil level settling in your container, add soil incrementally and pat it down between additions. This will allow light to reach the seedlings immediately as they germinate (sprout) and not be shaded by the sides of the fabric bag.
Place the Seedsheet seed-side-down on top of the soil, and press down lightly so the sheet is level. Double check that you cannot see the seeds and that the Seedsheet is facing down, or the seeds won't be able to germinate!
Take the three included green stakes in from the package and place them through the perforated holes cut in the black Seedsheet fabric. These stakes will hold down your Seedsheet and protect it from the wind.
Now that the Seedsheet is secure, begin watering. Use the included green misting nozzle affixed to a plastic bottle with a standard screw-top. Start by watering slowly for about 15 seconds, and then pause for about 30 seconds to let the water soak into the dissolvable pods. Continue watering in increments until the pods have completely dissolved. You can check this by gently lifting an edge of the black fabric to make sure the pods have dissolved completely and that the soil from within the pods is now fully-saturated.
It's essential that the clear film completely dissolves the first time the Seedsheet is watered! Check on your Seedsheet and water each day to keep the soil moist so the seeds can all germinate. Be patient, some seeds are "lazy" and take longer than others to sprout.
