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 potting trays such as the Large Potting Tray, Cell Seed Tray Inserts, Full Sized Seed Trays, or the Cell Seed Tray, it's worth considering that your plants might soon out-grow their surroundings. If this is the case, then re-potting them into pots such as the Pack of Square Black Pots, Pack of 5 12.7cm Plant Pots, or more biodegradable options such as the Square Fibre Pots or the Pack of 12 Fibre Pots are a good way to ensure their roots have sufficient room to continue their growth.

Fertilisters 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 such as the Hose And Spray-Gun Set, Flopro+ 30 Metre Hose and Cart System, 7 Litre Watering Can With Spray Rose, or the Telescopic 8 Dial Spray Lance 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 watering tool such as the Oscillating Garden Sprinkler or the Flopro+ Typhoon Rotating Sprinkler - designed to provide excellent coverage across your harvest. 

Looking to stay as eco-friendly as possible on the run-up to Summer? Why not invest in either a Ecomax Ward Compost Bin or a 100L Slimline Water Butt And Stand. Both are great ways to help save on waste whilst recycling natural materials!
