Directions

Please Note: This product consists of the sprouting seeds only; sprouting jars & stand are not included. You will need a full standard sprouting kit to grow your seeds.

  • Swiss chard is not recommended for sprouting in jars. Grow on a moist sprouting mat, with regular misting.
  • Keep your growing sprouts in natural light but never in direct sunlight. Rinse your seeds 2-3 times a day in cool water. The water should be rinsed clear.
  • Harvest within 2-3 days of the “tails” and/or greenery appearing from the seeds.
  • Drain the sprouts well & leave 2-4 hours to dry, before transferring to an airtight, covered storage container.
  • Enjoy your sprouts in 3-7 days; keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Start sprouting new seeds every 2- 3 days for a continuous, fresh supply.

Top Tips:

  • Never eat sprouts that have started to smell bad.
  • Always wash your containers thoroughly between plantings.
  • Remove any broken or damaged seeds before you start sprouting.
  • Double rinsing is recommended for beans & legumes.
  • Never eat sprouted soy beans with brown spots.
  • Unsprouted seeds should be stored in an airtight container in a cupboard. The germination life of seeds is generally 2-5 years.
