Potting Your Plants

When it comes to starting your vegetables off on the right foot, there are plenty of seed tray or pot options to choose from here at The Range. Whilst most seedlings are suitable for sowing into compact seed cell trays, it's worth considering that your plants might soon outgrow their surroundings. If this is the case, then re-potting them into pots to ensure their roots have sufficient room to continue their growth.

Fertilisers and Watering

With the warmer months often leaving plants dry and dehydrated, it's important to ensure you're providing them with as much nutrition and water as possible. Irrigation accessories are perfect for ensuring your growing plants are well looked after. For those with larger vegetable patches to tend to, then why not look at investing in a sprinkler designed to provide excellent coverage across your harvest. Looking to stay as eco-friendly as possible on the run-up to Summer? Then a water butt and compost bin will help you save on waste whilst recycling natural materials!
