In order to best carry out your row seeding, it is recommended that you bring a serfouette to dig the furrows. The end of a handle may be fine if you don't have one.
Row sowing consists of depositing seeds evenly in the hollow of a more or less deep furrow depending on the species you are going to grow.
- The depth may vary from 1 to 3 cm (we estimate 2 to 3 times the diameter of the seed)
- Then cover with a thin layer of soil or potting soil.
- Water in fine rain regularly
Once the seedlings have emerged, thin out as required to the mature size of the plants that have been seeded.
Advice on row sowing
If you can, trace your furrows in the direction of the prevailing wind!
For the smallest seeds, the Gardener-smart suggests that you mix them with fine sand.
It will be all the easier for you to distribute them evenly and without exaggeration in each furrow.
