Our Secret Garden Collection Inspired by the recent Shoalhaven bushfire has seeds are provided in 5 different herbs; Basil, Sage, Parsley, Mint and Thyme.
Once you have finished burning your candle, simply follow the instructions below to use the seeds and grow your very own herb garden.
STEP 1 – PREPARE YOUR POT & PLANT YOUR SEEDS
Herb seeds require good drainage to ensure healthy growth. We recommend sourcing a small plastic or peat plant seedling pot to pop into your Beloved Scents vessel before adding your seeds. To ensure a good fit, use a pot no wider than 7.5cm and 8cm tall and place into the vessel before filling with potting soil. Sprinkle your seeds in the soil and then lightly cover with remaining soil.
STEP 2 – CARE DURING GERMINATION
The seeds will require a little bit of care throughout the germination period. Growth success is entirely on the pot staying moist (and therefore soft) until after the seeds have germinated and positioned in a warm sunny spot , keeping the soil moist ensures the shoots will not be able to push through.
STEP 3 – ENJOY YOUR BELOVED SCENTS HERB GARDEN!
Germination should take 7 – 21 days. After this period, make sure you leave your pot in a location that is protected from extreme temperatures, humidity and strong light. Once sprouts appear, continue to keep the paper moist but be careful not to overwater. Once sturdy herbs appear, water as needed and enjoy your Beloved Scents herb garden!
