Ive mentioned how we would prepare your soil for planting, now that we have prepared the soil in such manner I’d be happy to move to the next stage of sowing your seeds in the garden. Good soil preparation is paramount and your soil should be dug to a depth of not less than 230mm.
This can be carried out in the Autumn and Winter or directly in advance of sowing in the Spring – the earlier the better really as good preparation, which is the fundamental key element of all our beautiful gardens will assist in the durability and effect of the overall results, whether soft or hard landscaping.
It is never possible to eliminate all weeds during preparation and new weeds will grow alongside new seedlings.
Sow a 150mm long row of seed to help identify the plant seedlings so that the weed seedlings can be carefully removed.
Small seed can be evenly scattered over the surface and then lightly raked in. Larger seed can be sown in shallow trenches up to 5mm deep with the seed evenly spaced and finally covered gently raking the soil over them.
Try not to leave it too late before to label for identification. With both methods, some spacing out of the seedlings may be required to give each plant room to develop fully.
