Handling Small Seeds

Small seeds can present problems when shipped in packs that allow for visible inspection (which is how we must pack our seeds in order to offer worldwide shipping).

So how to get your precious seeds out?

Try this:

Add a pinch of dry silver (very fine) sand to the pack, agitate it well to get the seeds to mix with the sand and prevent static making them cling to the sides.

Then sow the whole lot onto the surface of the growing medium as they will not need to be covered.   When watering, spray gently with a fine mist spray.

This method guarantees that you will get your seeds out of the pack and into the pot where you want them.
