    How to use

    Simply fill a 9cm (3 ½”) round pot with soil mix leaving a 1.5cm (1/2”) gap from the top of the pot for easy watering later on. Place the mat on the soil and firm down gently. Cover with a fine layer of soil, water well. Place in a warm position, a temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist.
    Plants can then be grown on a sunny windowsill or patio.
