Growing Herbs From Seed

Posted on: February 02, 2010

I purchased several seeds from Richters. I am unfamiliar with growing all of them. I am looking for a source where I can find instructions (how to germinate, best conditions for growing etc. Is there a source where I can easily search?

Germination instructions are on the back of the seed packets. To find out how to grow them afterwards, go to our web-site. On the left-hand side go to "News&Info", then "Richters InfoCentre" and type in the name of the seed.

For vegetable seeds the following general instructions work well. Choose a sunny spot for growing them. Plant the seeds about 3 times their thickness deep and space about 2-3 inches(5-7cm) apart and later thin to about 6 inches(15cm) apart. Cover sown row with some shading material such as evergreen boughs or weighted down newspaper to shade the soil and prevent too rapid drying. water to keep moist.
