What tools do I need for seed sowing?

The Presser Board

A simple but indispensable aid to seed sowing is the presser board.
It pays to make your own presser board, that will fit the exact internal measurements of the type of seed tray that you are using.
Simply cut a rectangle of quarter inch plywood to size and attach a "D" shaped handle.
This handy little item ensures that the compost/potting mix is correctly firmed and absolutely level...A great start to your seed sowing indoors.
