Instructions for successful sowing of spices
The seed discs are designed for pots 20 cm in diameter and 20 cm deep. You can also use larger ones by combining the discs. Make sure the pots have drainage holes. Select suitable soil. After filling the pot with soil, place the disc in the middle. Cover with a thin layer of soil – half a centimetre, maximum 1 centimetre. There are more seeds in the discs. Leave 1-2-3 roots, which are best developed, after sprouting and shaping. If you are using packaged soils, peat mixes and substrates bought from building supply stores, watch the pots for drying. Some of the substrates on offer dry out very quickly, especially if the pots are left in a sunny location. Water regularly to avoid the soil drying out. Maintaining constant moisture is essential for plant germination.
It requires fertile and well-drained soil and a sunny location. Feeding – once a month until flowering. Watering – likes moist soil, but don’t overwater. Water when the soil is dry. To get a plant with lots of colour you need to prune/pinch the top. Once flowering begins, remove the spent blooms.
The soil must be light and well drained. Add sand if necessary. Water regularly. It does not tolerate drought but is sensitive to overwatering. Try to keep the soil moist, not rotten. Choose a sunny spot or semi-shade, but bear in mind that it does not tolerate very high temperatures. In April, you can take outside. Leave 1-2 roots in the pot.
The soil must be very well drained. Cover the disc with half an inch of soil. Maintain moisture until germination. Then water only when the soil is dry. The plant is sensitive to overwatering. Another feature is that the place must be well lit. Does not tolerate temperature drops. Feeding – once a month with liquid compound fertilizer. If you notice the plant fading and slowing down, it is probably due to overwatering or overfeeding. Leave 2-3 roots in the pot. The rest can be planted elsewhere if desired.
This is the tallest flower in the collection. It can reach up to 50 cm and this should be taken into account when choosing and placing the pot. Immortelle thrives well in light, sandy soil. The place must be sunny. In partial shade it will not flower much. Withstands drought. Water once a week. Feeding – 1-2 times. The optimum temperature for germination is 20-22°C. Flowering will begin 3 months after germination and continue until the end of October. Cut flowers keep their appearance for a very long time. Leave 1-2 plants in the pot.

Water regularly without overwatering. You can sow as early as January, but if you plan to put the pot outside, do it in April or later. Petunia does not tolerate cold. Leave no more than 2-3 roots per pot. Remove the blossoms with the seeds. Otherwise the colours will diminish. By removing the flower, the seeds remain at the base. Remove them by cutting 2 cm below them with scissors.
For Verbena, use well-drained soil. If you have doubts about the soil you can mix it with sand. You can put the disc in as early as January and take it outside in April. Verbena requires a lot of sun. Place the disc in the middle and put some soil to fix it in the pot. In the beginning, maintain constant moisture. It will germinate in about 3 weeks. Leave 1-2 roots in the pot. Water 1-2 times a week when the plant is established. Do not overwater. Verbena can withstand drought.
Choose a sunny place for the pot. The soil should be light, sandy. In the beginning, maintain constant moisture. When the plant is established, water once a week. Withstands drought. Cover the disc with just a little soil. You will see the first sprouts in about 2 weeks. Leave only one root in the pot. The plant forms a tufa up to 50 cm in diameter. In April-May you can take outdoors. Remove the passed colours. Feed once every 1-2 months.
Use rich, well-drained and slightly acidic ( Ph 6.0-7.0) soil. Place the disc in the pot and pour a little soil on it to fix it. Maintain constant moisture for the first 2-3 weeks until germination, without overdoing it. Then water a bit every 3-5 days. Keep in mind that Lobelia seeds are extremely small and a lot of them will germinate in the pot. Leave 1-2 roots for a 20 cm diameter pot.
Place the disc in the pot and pour a little soil on it to fix it. Water regularly in the beginning to maintain moisture. Once the plant is established you can water once a week. Use well-drained soil. No feeding is required unless the soil is very poor.
Place the disc in the pot and cover it with a little soil – quarter inch. Maintain constant moisture at the start and temperature above 15°C, 20-22°C recommended. You will see the first plants sprouting on day 7. You can leave 2-3 roots in the pot. The soil must be light and well drained. The zinnia can withstand drought. Water once a week. Feeding – 2 times for the whole summer, but not necessarily. To enjoy consistent and abundant flowering, remove overblooms regularly.
Place the disc in the pot and cover it with a little soil – half an inch. Pot marigolds are unpretentious to soil, but thrive well in well-drained slightly acidic soils. Pot marigolds can withstand drought. In the beginning, water to maintain constant moisture. Water once a week once the plant has formed. Be careful – too much water will damage the plant. The first stems will sprout on the 10th day at temperatures above 12°C. Leave 2-3 roots in the pot.
It is not demanding of the soil, but it must be well drained. Place the disc in the pot and cover with a thin layer of soil – half an inch. It will germinate around day 10 at a temperature of 20°C. Leave 1 or 2 roots in the pot. Can be picked 2-3 weeks after germination. Requires sun, but thrives in partial shade. Watering – regularly until the plant is established and 2 weeks thereafter. Remove the passed colours.
Thrives well in full sun and partial shade. There are no special requirements for the soil as long as it is well drained. Watering – keep the humidity up. When the plant is established, water once a week near the root. Be careful not to overwater. Asters withstand drought. Feeding – once a month, as it begins to bloom stop. Leave 1-2 roots in the pot. Cut/pinch off the blossoms that have passed.
The soil for the Snapdragon flower should be rich, well-drained and neutral. Thrives well in full sun and partial shade. Watering – maintain moisture in the first weeks, then once a week at the base of the plant. Put the disc in the pot and cover with a thin layer of soil – half an inch. Plants will germinate in 2-3 weeks at temperatures between 15°C and 20°C. Try to leave 4-5 roots in the pot to have more flowers.
Place the disc in the pot and cover with half an inch of soil. Water it. Be patient – it will germinate in 3 to 4 weeks at 15 to 20°C, sometimes longer. You can thin the plants in the pot if necessary. The roots are sensitive, so picking is problematic. Requires 6-8 hours of sunlight, rich soil and moisture. You will be able to cut your parsley 2-3 months after sprouting. Cut off a whole twig instead of just the leaves.
It is easy to grow in pots with one peculiarity – it forms deep roots and therefore a deeper pot is needed. The soil for growing fennel should be rich. Cover the disc by half an inch and water. Like parsley, it likes moisture. Germinates in about 2 weeks. 6-8 hours of sunshine per day. Thin the plants in the pot to a few. Dill can reach as much as 2 metres in height. If grown in a pot, as is the case with our discs, it is necessary to pinch/cut the top. Do not cut off more than 1/3 of the plant height.
It requires rich soil, 6-8 hours of sunshine and regular watering. It is a good idea to provide a deeper pot. Cover the disc with a thin layer of soil and water regularly. Germinates in 1-2 weeks at a temperature of about 20°C. Leave 3-4 roots in the pot. Trim/pinch the top to make it more dense and keep it from getting tall. You can pick the basil when it is 15-20 cm tall. Pick regularly and no more than 1/3 of the leaves per month. So it becomes even denser.
Requires rich, well-drained soil, full sun or partial shade, regular watering. Germinates in 2 weeks at a temperature of 15-18°C. Leave 1 root in a pot. Trim/pinch the top so it doesn’t get tall, but thick and lush. Pick the leaves regularly.
It needs rich, well-drained soil. Germinates in about 2 weeks. Unlike the other spices in the collection, it does not require much moisture. Once the plant has formed, you can reduce the watering. Leave 2-3 roots in a pot. To avoid the plant getting too tall, cut/pinch the top when it reaches 10-15 cm tall. Pick the tips of the twigs. The taste and aroma are strongest before the plant blooms.
