General Germination Guide (Microgreens)

  • Prepare a container with drainage holes  - eg supermarket grape/fruit punnets
  • Line the bottom of the container with a layer or two or (bleach-free) kitchen roll or similar
  • Soak seeds in a glass of water for a few hours
  • Soak the kitchen roll in the container with water and pour off any excess
  • Scatter the seeds over the kitchen roll  and gently press them down to get a good contact
  • Cover the seeds and the kitchen roll with a with a layer of wet newspaper
  • Place the container on a sunny draught-free window sill
  • Water once per day on top of the newspaper 
  • After 2-4 days the sprouts will begin pushing up the newspaper - remove the newspaper
  • Harvest with scissors when sprouts are 4-8cms


General Growing Guide (Sprouts)

  • Soak seeds in water for approx 12 hours
  • Drain in a sieve and rinse with cold water
  • Transfer seeds to a sprouting vessel - these can be purchased, but can easily be made from recycled glass or plastic jars with lids or gauze
  • If using lids on the jars needs, the lid needs to have lots of small holes to allow water to drain but not allow the seeds to fall through
  • I find some gauze secured with elastic bands works perfectly well
  • Place in a cool dark place (eg larder or kitchen cupboard) for 48 hours
  • During this period, rinse the seeds and drain 3 times a day
  • Sprouting seeds should be visible from day 2
  • Once the sprouts are 2-2.5cm long bring the jar into some nice indirect light
  • After about 12 hours the seeds should take on a lovely green colour
  • Rinse the seeds, drain and then harvest 
  • Sprouts can be dried off before storing in containers using a spinner or a paper towel

Amaranth (Green & Red) Amaranth sprouts contain vitamins A, B, C and E as well as Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Niacin, Phosphorus and Potassium. They are also high in amino acids and protein.

Barley Grass Barley grass is a common ingredient often featured in juices and supplements - for good reason as it is rich in protein, fibre, B vitamins, carotenoids, vitamin C and minerals. Barley grass neutralizes toxins and is an excellent aid to digestion

Beetroot Beet sprouts contain Betanins which are a very powerful antioxidants. They are also rich in vitamin C.

Broccoli Broccoli sprouts contain vitamins A, B, C, E and K and are full of minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Zinc and Potassium. They also contain significant amountd of amino acids and a very high in protein.

Cress Cress sprouts are high in Iron, Folic Acid, Aalcium and vitamins B, C and K. They are also high in Omega-3 fatty acids

Fenugreek  - More mellow than mature plants their uniquely spicy flavour is perfectly suited for Indian cuisine or simply adding a flavour twist to everyday dishes and salads. They are a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron.

Mizuna - incredibly easy to grow, Mizuna sprouts have a milder flavour than that of full-sized plants. Mizuna sprouts are packed with vitamins A, B, C, E and K as well as
Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Carotene, Chlorophyll, Amino Acids and Antioxidants!

Oat Groat Breakfast Sprouts - Oats are of course very good for you however in sprouted form they are even better as the germination process allows for optimum release of  iron, vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, and proteins

Pea Pea shoots contain vitamins C, A, K, as well as many other vital vitamins and minerals. These are our favourite and we always have at least one tray in pea sprouts in production!

Radish "China Rose" - My favorite. Not as spicy as full grown radish but still a pleasant peppery hit. Radishes are packed with antioxidants, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals and are particularly high in vitamin C.

Red Cabbage - Like all cabbage varieties, red cabbage is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, and fiber. Red cabbage also contains other vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin Ar and has higher levels of some types of antioxidants than other types of cabbage. Lovely slight peppery taste - but not too "cabbagy"!

Red Shiso - a great source of Vitamins B, C, and K, Folic Acid, and fibre.

Rocket -  Rocket sprouts are rich in amino acids and vitamins C, E, B and K. They also contain beta-carotenes, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin (eye health). Rocket is also a source of glucosinolates

Sunflower  -  Super easy to grow, Sunflower sprouts are very high in protein. They are also rich in Vitamin B, which can reduce stress levels, and zinc, which helps balance the body’s hormones.

Wheatgrass  Wheatgrass sprouts are high in both nutrients and antioxidants. They contain vitamins Vitamin A, C, E, K and B as well as Calcium, Iron and Magnesium

Yellow Mustard Mustard seeds produce lovely peppery sprouts, that remind me of a mild version of Wasabi. They are rich in vitamins A, B, C, E , K, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Carotene, Chlorophyll, Amino Acids, and Antioxidants.
