  • Light needed: Full sun

Inside your Slab of Seed box, you’ll find a soil “chocolate slab”; each block in the slab is sown with a tomato seed. To ensure good germination, store your seed slabs in a cool, dark & dry place until you’re ready to use them. There are 2 ways to get your seed slab growing:

1. Pour ¼ cup of hot water over the slab; wait 24 hours for it to absorb. Break the slab into blocks & plant.


2. Place the slab in a sunny spot, keep it moist & wait for the seeds to start germinating. Break into blocks & plant.

Doesn’t grow - planted almost a month ago. Had to dig them all up - the blocks become rock hard in the soil even though we watered it every three days and planted it in good fertile soil. Seeds were unable to germinate.
