Children Planting Seeds and Growing Seeds in a Propagator
Propagating seed is a pretty simple process.
The elements required are:
- Container – heated propagators work best, but it could be as simple as
- Growth medium – soil, compost or things like absorbent paper or cotton wool
- Water – do not let the seeds dry out – see my story about poor little Phyllis
- Heat – try and get the seeds warm
- Dark (optional)
- Then Sunlight (after germination – when the shoot appears)

- Fill them with compost.

- Cover with a clear or opaque bag.
- Place on a water retaining plat, tray or lid.
- Place near a heat source like a radiator or a heated water tank.
- Then check every few days to see if the seeds have germinated.
