Follow the steps below:

Step 1:

Rinse and clean out your Crofter’s jar well. Making sure there are no leftover pieces of fruit spread in the jar. Dry well and set aside.

Next, mount your hose ties to the wooden board.

Measure out equal distances in between and fasten with a screw in the middle.

Step: 2

First, add a layer of small rocks or pebbles to the glass jar.

As a guide, fill up with small rocks to the bottom of the label on the jar.

Step 3:

Next, take the planting soil and fill the glass jar 3/4 of the ways full.

Again, as a guide, fill up with soil until you reach the top of the Crofter’s label.

Step 4:

Add in your seeds, try to place the seeds equally apart from each other and give them enough space from the side of the jar so that it doesn’t hinder their growth.

After that, gently place the seeds in the soil and lightly push them into the soil.

Step 5:

Lastly, fill up the remainder of the glass jar with planting soil and lightly push the planting soil down into the jar.

Careful not to pack it too tight.

Lightly spray the soil with water.

Step 6:

Finally, Repeat this process for each jar that you want to plant herb seeds into (we did 4).

Once all your seeds have been planted and the jars have been watered, carefully mount the jars to the wooden board with the hose ties.

**Pro Tip: an extra set of hands can come in handy to get the jars fastened correctly.
