It turns out you may have been going the wrong way about growing your Woolworths Discovery Garden.
Plastic-free Brisbane wrote on Facebook “some words of advice” on growing the little garden collectibles.
It comes as a number of disappointed customers voiced their frustration with their Woolworths Discovery Garden plants failing to grow earlier this week.
Plastic-free Brisbane recommended not planting every seed at the same time.
“Don’t do what we did - which is get a mad rush of blood to the head,” it wrote.
Woolworths has a guide as to when the best season is for each plant to grow.
For example, bok choy is best to plant from spring to autumn while beetroot is better in late winter to autumn.
“We also found the little cardboard name tags were pretty useless (they got wet and curled up very quickly),” Plastic-free Brisbane wrote.
“So we swapped them out for some old Paddle Pop sticks (actually mini Magnum sticks are the perfect size).”
It also advised using plastic strawberry punnets as mini greenhouses.
“This is a great way to reuse these punnets, as strawberries are very difficult to buy plastic-free if you aren’t fortunate enough to live near a strawberry farm,” it wrote.
