Days to Sprout
Sprout- 4-5 days, Microgreen- 8-12 days
1 tbsp dry seed yields 2/3 cup of sprouts
Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you'd like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they'll last even longer!
Best Sprouting Method
Unbleached heavy paper towel
Unbleached coffee filter
Unglazed clay surface
Basil can be added in small amounts to regular sprouting seeds (alfalfa, lentils, etc.) in a jar or sprouter. Mix the basil in after soaking the other seed. Do not soak the basil. Do not add to much, as basil tends to be gelatinous.
Do not soak seed.
Dampen an unglazed clay pot bottom or tray lined with Baby Blanket, unbleached paper towel or coffee filter, or soil.
Sprinkle lightly with dry seeds, leaving space between the seeds.
Spray lightly with water until damp but not too wet. Preserve moisture by loosely covering the seeds with clear plastic.
Spray lightly with water twice a day. Keep damp, but not too wet. When established, sprouts can be rinsed under a slow flowing tap.
Enjoy! Ready in 4-5 days (sprouts) or 8-12 days (microgreens).
