Vermiculite is used to germinate seeds.
Fill your Bio Pot with the compost provided to within 1 cm of the top of the pot. Firm the compost gently.
Remove seeds from the fridge and sow on the surface of the soil. Cover the seeds with a couple of millimeters of vermiculite provided (avoid contact with eyes and skin, wear gloves and wash your hands).
Follow with a gentle watering and keep them at room temperature. Placing pot onto a saucer or small plate gives you the chance to move plant as needed and water without making a mess.
A Christmas Tree is not just for Christmas!
All seeds are dormant (asleep) and nature has a clever way to wake them up, called spring! Putting seeds into the fridge mimic winter, and taking them from the cold to the warm mimics spring. Your seeds may grow if you just dodge the fridge instruction but the chance of growth will not be as good.
If all goes well with germination you should have a small 20cm tree after the first year. Following years, with a little care and attention, your tree should grow by about 30 cm per year.
Your tree will respond better if you feed it during the growing season (spring/summer).
Water regularly, do not allow it to dry out.
Too much or not enough water will kill your tree. A potted tree is like your other pot plants, you need to check water levels constantly.
Tip: Touch the soil with your finger and it comes away clean it needs water if it feels wet and your finger has soil on it then leave it for a day.
The bigger the tree the bigger the roots of a tree, so regular repotting is needed. As a simple rule change the pot every year. Best to repot after it is taken back outside after Xmas. Repot into a pot that is at
least 10cm (4ins) larger in diameter. Use a multipurpose potting compost. Add 10 – 15% garden bark mulch to aid drainage.
adding a few worms to the mix will also help.
How long can I keep it in its pot?
It is up to your ability to move the tree, and the tree being happy in the pot. If your tree is suffering and can't be repotted plant it permanently in the ground. It has done its job and will live happily for another 50+years.
Your tree needs some sunlight, but really it will grow anywhere, however, if it is in constant sun it will need more water.
Once your tree is living in the garden bring it in as late as possible and make sure that you place it away from direct heat, fires/radiators.
Tip: When taking the tree out do not put it straight out into an exposed situation — a garage or similar situation will allow it to acclimatize.
Always be guided by the tree. If it looks unhappy check water pot size and where it is.
