USING SEED TAPES
To achieve the best results you must provide the same preparation and aftercare that you would with any new seed bed.
DO NOT lay a seed tape on hard soil – provide good ‘fluffy’ soil under the tape. Apply 5mm of soil onto the top of the tape and keep moist until germination occurs.
How to Sow: Choose a well drained site in full sun. Sow direct where to grow in a warm, well prepared seedbed. Form a shallow trench / groove approximately 1cm deep and lay tape in it. These seeds are already spaced and attached to the tape. Cover with soil to a depth of 1cm and water well.
Care for seedling: Keep seedbed evenly moist during the germination period of 7-10 days. Apply McGregor’s VegeMax 2 weeks after germination for healthier plants and a maximum crop. Protect your vege garden from snails and slugs with McGregor’s Snail and Slug Bait and from White Butterfly with McGregor’s Derris Dust.
Hints & Tips: Basil, has for a long time, been the most popular herbs … now its even easier and quicker to sow. Seed tape can be easily cut with scissors to suit any sized container or requirement.28 January 2021
