|Dry Peat Pellets|
|Just add water and they Grow!|
Place peat pellet(s) in a tray or bowl and add water. Warm water will stimulate growth a bit faster. If the pellets soak up all of the water, add a bit more just to be sure they are finished growing. Drain excess water. This should take about 5 minutes or less.
Make a “hole” for the seeds. Place seed in the “hole” and cover with peat soil. Keep Pellet moist but not sitting in water. Keep in a warm place such as a windowsill, patio table or under lights.
Several seed varieties such as Chamomile, Yarrow and Sage should be sown on the surface of the soil. Simply pull back or cut the mesh covering off the top of the peat pellet and sprinkle the seeds on the surface.

If you're having trouble germinating seeds there are several factors to consider.
-Not enough or too much water, not enough light or heat and (most important) SOIL.
I have had better success germinating in Peat Pellets than I did using a seed-starter mix and with peat pellets I don't make such a mess.
