Product Info...

Basil Purple for Sprouting or Herb – Italian Red

Fast growing Purple Colour variety.

An attractive and very useful annual plant. It grows up to 32cm in height and has large medium rich  red/purple leaves from 2 to 4 cm long. Similar to Genovese but with more aroma and exotic flavour. Its microgreens share the same flavour, with the benefit of a quicker growing time and complete lack of bitterness. Full of dimension, its subtle clove-like taste is followed by a slightly sweet finish. It is slow to bolt, matures slightly later than Genovese with larger leaves.

Italian basil microgreens are a good source of Protein, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Riboflavin and Niacin, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese.

Sprout Kits

Sprout Kit Sm. x 1

Basic sprouting kit consisting of 1 sprouting colanders with covers along with 250 mls of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip).

Sprout Kit Sm. x 2

Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when 1 of the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge and then start the other one so you have a consistent supply.

Sprout Kit Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2

Sprouting kit 2 small sprouting colanders with covers plus one large 4L colander with cover along with 250ml of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for those people that eat a lot of sprouts as you can wait until the 2 small ones are full or three quarters full and then add them to the large one which you store in the fridge, after a few more days of cleaning and rinsing, and then start the process again in the small ones while eating from the large one, again so you have a constant supply.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag

Sprouting kit 1 large colander with cover + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip ) for the early stage of sprouting (instead of the small colanders) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection. So the idea with this kit is you use 1 of the mesh bags to grow your sprouts for the 1st say 4 days, you then empty them into the large colander for the final stages of cleaning (removal of husk) and greening. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag
Sprout Kit Lg. Mung

Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using 1 large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.
Growing the mung bean in the long white format. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.
We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.
We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Vegetable storage kit

The kit consists of 2 cotton bags, one mesh bag, and a clip to seal plastic bags. Can be used to store leafy greens, sprouts, vegetables in general and can also be used as a shopping/carry bag also designed to fold into a small package.
This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. Leafy greens & sprouts, it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, any damp material will not stick to the cotton bag (meaning you do not have to wash the cotton bag every time you change it). So the simple procedure is put the leafy greens inside the mesh bag, zip it up, place inside the cotton bag, then place inside a plastic bag that doesn't have any holes in it, gently squeeze the air out and secure with the clip.

The difference between this kit and the 25 W. kit is that this light is 100W, both lights have no fan, i.e. no noise. Our aim is to allow you to grow as much as possible using the smallest possible space & least amount of power. So this light would come in handy if you want to grow something that requires more power eg, fruiting or bud development. Like the 25W, it comes with a mix of 2 different types of white and 660nm red LEDs. Click to hide.

Can be used to grow arrange of microgreens, personally I use a paper towel to cover the grill and then use vermiculite as the growing medium. It can also be used to grow small potted herbs, in this configuration you just add the herb to the grill, flood the grill until the roots penetrate into the reservoir below, at this stage you may need to add some of the nutrient solution to the water in the reservoir. Here seen grown in 1 of our light stands which is specifically designed for narrow spaces such as a cupboard or a kitchen bench.
