I found this little packet of 12 seed raising pods at my local garden centre yesterday and thought I would give them a try. I actually got 13 in the packet which is a change.
They were so easy to use, they look like little felt round pads ,quite flat. You just put them into a dish(I used a meat tray)one that comes from the supermarket with meat in it. Although I did remove the meat first. Pour over a little warm water and within a few minutes they are 7cm tall. Just push aside the mesh on the top and plant a seed, cover over a little with the peat, cover the whole lot( I just put some glad wrap over) and watch them grow. Just a little bit of water now and then when they go pale brown. When the seedling is quite strong, plant the whole lot straight into the garden. "Ingenious"
