Instructions for use

Sowing seeds:

Simply fill a clean seed tray or pot evenly with compost and firm down lightly.
Then, sow your seeds following the recommendations on the seed packet. For specialist seeds use Bord na Móna Growise Seed & Cutting Compost.

Transplanting seedlings:

When the seedlings have at least one pair of leaves move them to new trays or pots to allow more space to grow. Handle them very gently by the leaves, taking care to avoid any damage to their stems and roots. Plant into holes in the compost about 5 cm apart. When you have filled all the holes, water the compost thoroughly using a watering can with a fine rose. Do not over water. Place the tray or pot in a light position but away from direct sunlight. For specialist seedlings use Bord na Móna Growise Seed & Cutting Compost.

Rooting cuttings:

First, fill a shallow pot or tray with Bord na Móna Growise Pro 5 All Purpose Compost and gently firm the compost. Insert the prepared cuttings and water thoroughly. Maintain a moist atmosphere by covering with a clear plastic bag and keep out of direct sunlight. Only water when the compost feels dry or if the cutting starts to wilt. For specialist cuttings use Bord na Móna Growise Seed & Cutting Compost.

Hanging baskets and containers:

Fill the container with Bord na Móna Growise Pro 5 All Purpose Compost. Line hanging baskets with moss or another suitable liner ensuring that there are adequate drainage holes, before filling. Water thoroughly after planting and ensure that the compost is not allowed to dry out.

Potting on:

Partly fill a pot (large enough to comfortably accommodate plant roots) with Bord na Móna Growise Pro 5 All Purpose Compost. Ensure the plant to be re-potted is well watered and then tap it out of its container. Position the undisturbed root ball of the plant in the new pot and top up with more compost. Gently firm the compost to ensure that no large air spaces are left around the roots. Water well and keep shaded until the plant is well established.

Beds and borders:

For planting out flowers, trees and shrubs, dig a hole in the soil at least twice the size of the root ball. Mix Bord na Móna Growise Pro 5 All Purpose Compost with the soil in a 50:50 mixture and refill the hole around the roots. Firm around the base of the plant and water well. Keep moist until the plant is well established.
