Sowing in containers:
For sowing seeds of herbs or vegetables it is best to use small containers or seedling trays, to do this, the soil from the bag should be loosened and slightly moistened, then fill the containers with soil, press, sow the seeds and cover with a thin layer of soil. When planting seedlings in pots or boxes, choose their size according to the species of plant. At the bottom of the pot create a drainage layer of expanded clay or small stones. Then fill the container with KRONEN® BIO Soil for sowing and rooting, place the plant and slightly compress the soil leaving about 2 cm of free space from the upper edge of the pot. After planting, water the first time with plenty of water, and then water the plant moderately but regularly.
When planting seedlings of herbs or vegetables in the garden you should avoid places that are too moist and shady. When transplanting seedlings use KRONEN® BIO soil for herbs and vegetables, which is richer in nutrients and has a thicker structure. When preparing the site for planting, mix the soil with the native soil in a 1:1 ratio, then plant. If the soil in the garden is too waterlogged and impermeable create a raised bed. or cultivate plants in the High Bed system.
Herbs have relatively low nutritional requirements, so no fertilizer should be applied after sowing the seeds. Herbs grown in pots and boxes should be fed from spring to autumn with natural fertilizer (once per week) in the amount recommended by the manufacturer. In the remaining period 1-2 times a month. Herbs grown in gardens can be fertilized by putting compost under the plants.
Caution: Substrates should be thoroughly loosened before use, moisten if necessary. It is recommended to do the gardening in gardening gloves.
Store in a dry place in a tightly closed container. Protect against negative effects of weather conditions. In case of prolonged and improper storage the properties of the substrate may change.
