I recd my seeds for my outdoor enclosure but no planting instructions. Don’t want to waste the seeds but also want a good coverage. I have 625 sq feet enclosure

I tried just sprinkling them on top of the ground and they didn't really grow. Then I tried loosening the soil a little with a garden hoe and tried again and it grew great. I watered it once a day till it sprouted good. You dont need to go heavy sprinkling them, a little goes a long way. The small bag will last a while.

I just sprinkled them over a freshly scraped dirt and they have already sprouted. With all the rain we've had I haven't had to water much.

Looks like Murphy has had his first issue while with me. I think he's got a bit of shell fungus. Treating it with anti fungal cream IMG_20191013_083832393.jpg
