Seed packets

Seeds come in all shapes and sizes and there are many different ways to sow seeds. For example, carrot and lettuce seeds are sprinkled into soil or compost all together as they are too small to handle separately. Larger seeds like beans or sweet corn are easy to pick up and sow one by one. Seeds may be sown indoors or outside, in containers or straight in the soil. They may be sown in blocks or rows, or scattered over a large area.

Even the most experienced gardeners don’t know how to sow every type of seed so we don’t expect you to either! The most important thing is knowing where to find the information. 

The first place to look is the seed packet.
