Fundraise with Seeds - Yates Raise A Patch
Grow seedlings for your school fete
Step 1: Purchase your Yates Raise A Patch fundraising boxes
Step 2: Start collecting some small garden pots. If you need to, you can reuse plastic containers like margarine tubs/ tomato punnets. Or be creative and find old shoes, teacups, etc.
Step 3: Wash your containers well before you start. Poke some drainage holes in the base. Pull on your gardening gloves and fill each container with Yates Seed Raising Mix. The mix should be moist before you handle it. If its dry, be sure to water it with a watering can.
Step 4: Choose some seeds from your Yates Raise A Patch boxes and sow them into the seed raising mix, following the directions on the seed packet
What to sow? In Spring sow tomatoes and basil and in Autumn mixed lettuce etc. We have a seed planting calendar on our website www.yates.com.au.
Tip: Make sure you put a label on each pot (otherwise you might forget what you have planted.)
