What to do

  • 1. Put broken terracotta pieces in the bottom of the pots to a depth of about 1 cm, to create a drainage layer.

  • 2. Using the trowels, half fill the pots with potting soil.

  • 3. Squeeze or tap the seedlings out of their pots – if your terracotta pots are large enough you might be able to put more than one seedling in each pot.

  • 4. Place the seedlings into the pot at equal distances apart.

  • 5. Gently backfill with potting soil. You want about 2 cm of pot rim to be showing once you have finished, to allow room for watering.

  • 6. Cut ribbon to lengths to wrap around the pot.

  • 7. Apply glue to the circumference of the pot, where you want to stick
    the ribbon.

  • 8. Wrap and tie the ribbon, pressing down gently to allow the glue to adhere.

  • 9. Place the pots onto the melamine platter on the windowsill.
