Made from the highest quality sterlised peat to exacting standards, Jiffy-7 Peat pellets are widely used in commercial horticulture across the globe.
Simply place the pellets into a saucer or propagator (hole side up – you will see what we mean when you have them in front of you), add a little tepid tap water to the bottom of the container and watch them expand over a 20 minute or so period. The pellets have a PH of 5.3 so there is no need to PH adjust the tap water, they are also fully fertilised so nutrients are also unnecessary at this stage.
If seeds are going into them make a little hole in the top of the peat about 5mm deep, drop the seed in and gently recover. For cuttings simply make a hole deep into the pellet with a cocktail stick of similar object, take the cutting and dip in Clonex or ROOT!IT Cloning gel then push the stem approx 2/3 of the way down into the pellet. When it’s firmly seated very gently press the peat down around the stem of the cutting to make sure no air can get in and to add support.
