Prepare Your Peat/Dirt Pellet

Place your pellet in your planter and add warm water to cover the pellet. Wait several minutes and watch your pellet expand. When your pellet is 1 inch tall, remove the extra water. Peel back the netting on top and fluff your pellet.

Add Your Seeds

Add 2-3 seeds to your pellet. Lightly cover your seeds with peat/dirt. When your seeds are ready, move your planter to a warm location that is out of direct sunlight.

Watch Your Plant Grow

Be patient as your wait for your seeds to sprout. Watch as leaves appear and your plant grows taller each day. Place your plant in a sunny location and keep your peat/dirt moist.

Transplant in the Ground

Once the danger of frost has passed, plant your seedling outdoors. Dig a hole deep enough to cover the top of your peat/dirt pellet and place your plant in the hole. Cover with dirt and water regularly.
