Sowing Vegetables

If you'd love to feel more confident about growing your own vegetables from seed, then this course has been written with you in mind. The focus is entirely on sowing skills for the vegetable garden and we follow a 'Living Soil' approach, for super healthy vegetables.

During this course, we explore sowing conditions, including sowing temperatures, depths and how to decide where to sow vegetables - whether inside or out, in an open tray, module tray or in pots. We also look at how to care for both your seeds and your seedlings, to keep them all in top health. Finally, we go through some of the sustainable options for seed sowers, including how to make your own seed compost, how to start seeds in a living soil and how to recycle old containers into fully functional seed trays or modules.
