Using good multipurpose moist compost – pile compost over tray and brush it into side and corner cells.
Give tray a bump to settle compost into the bottom of cells. Top-up if necessary.
Brush off any excess compost to reveal the cell tops.
Add a little water with a watering can fitted with a rose.
Air pruning: the first roots race down the special grooves and quickly emerge through the drainage holes. The tips die off naturally causing masses of side roots to develop higher in the cell. This results in a super root system all set to feed a perfect plant.
