Hippie Sticks Planting Guide



We have created a planting guide to ensure you have success growing your flower.

And make the most of your finished lippy and help feed the bees. 

Ways to plant your tube

Sow tube directly into soil until the lid is barely covered. 

Sow lid only in seed raising mix (the rest of your tube can go in the compost).

For those who can't wait to grow their flower. Remove seed from under cap on lid and sow directly into seed raising mix.

Extra Tips
Always use a good quality soil or seed raising mix.
Never sow too deeply (Seed should be barely covered).
Never allow soil or seed mix to dry out or become waterlogged.
Be vigilant of low light levels and seedling damping off.

Because of many factors that could prevent germination, Hippie Stick does not 100% guarantee that your tube will grow a flower.
