I bought my seeds and Jiffy Windowsill Propagator from Dobies, and was delighted when it arrived this morning. I’ve never thought of growing any seeds in January before, and was greatly intrigued by the compressed compost blocks!
I began by pouring 800ml of water over the compost blocks to rehydrate them. I then evened out the compost using my trowel before making some furrows. Next, I finely sowed my salad seeds and gently covered them with compost before lightly watering.
If you’d like to have a go at windowsill gardening, here are a few more exciting products:
Marshall Seeds stock the ultimate plant propagator featuring 49 plant modules, which makes it ideal for using in the greenhouse or on a windowsill.
Nigel’s Eco Store is one of my favourite websites and is always worth a visit. At the moment I particularly like his Red Kos, Red Tinged Batavia and Oak Leaf window box salad kit.
Good luck and happy salad growing!
