These grow bars are perfect for those who love the idea of gardening but are looking for a more gentle introduction or are limited on space! Nurture these seed bars with regular watering, and watch as little shoots sprout through the coir bar. Once they have grown four leaves, they can be potted or planted outside.

Materials: Natural, quality seeds. Coir is a sustainable alternative to peat, made with coconut fibres, and even the packaging of these bars is 100% eco-friendly with a recyclable card outer and film wrap made from biodegradable sugar cane, carefully packed by a small team in South London.
Care: Start by unwrapping your Growbar and place it with the brown protective paper facing upwards, into a container with plenty of space to allow it to expand; a takeaway food tray is ideal. Gently pour half a litre of water into the tray and position indoors on a warm, bright sunny windowsill. The seeds will need to be a cosy 18°-22° to germinate.
Water regularly and ensure the Growbar is perfectly moist, it should remain the colour of a rich dark ginger cake.
After a few weeks you should have a bar neatly dotted with little seedlings. These will be happy growing together in the bar for a further month in their sunny location.
When the seedlings have produced 4-8 leaves you may then gently separate them, being careful to not damage the delicate roots, and plant them in individual pots or a sunny weed-free spot in the garden. Plants grown in the ground with plenty of space and sunlight will produce more abundant fragrant foliage but it is possible to grow the seedlings in large containers on the balcony or patio.
