How I make my seed raising mix.

How I make my seed raising mix.

Items needed:

1x Coir Peat Brick (I used 2)

For 1 brick you use 4.5L of rain water since I used 2 bricks I used 9L.

Some sulfate of Potash and some potting mix.

Stuff i used.


-Put the Coir Peat brick(s) in a wheel barrow then add 4.5L of good water (if using two bricks use 9L)

-Leave it there for 10-15 minutes

-then add some sulfate of potash and

some potting mix or dry sand.

-Mix it all together.

Then it is ready to use. I store the stuff I

don’t use all at once in my potting mix containers.

Coir peat brick when it doubled it size.
