It's perfect for gardeners who either don't have much time, or aren't very green fingered.

      Planting instructions
      Simply roll out the mat on a weed-free spot of prepared soil and cover with about 5cm of sharp sand, top soil or compost, that will secure the mat. Then just water in. The mat will help suppress weeds and encourage the seeds to grow. To get the best results the seed mats should be used in spring and keep moist.
