Session One Care Card


  • If possible have a look at your tray every day

  • If the compost looks and feels dry give a little water to each module but if it is moist (damp) then leave and check again the next day

  • When the seeds start to grow and you can see the stems then turn the tray around every few days

  • You put 2 seeds into each module, once they have grown you need to reduce this to just one spinach seedlings per module

  • We do this by taking out the weaker seedling and leaving the strongest one in the module

  • The strongest spinach seedling will have a thicker stem and may be taller than the rest

  • You should be left with only one spinach plant per module

  • The seedlings which were removed can be put into a compost bin if you have one
