Chickpea after the 3rd 10 minute morning soak and 8 hours later definitely ready to eat I would not let them go any longer than this, see later slides. Click to hide.

Chickpea 1 day after an overnight soak in probiotic nutrients, ready to eat. Click to hide.

Chickpea after overnight soak in probiotic nutrients, at this stage I would begin to separate the damaged seeds that aren't going to germinate, we supply an optional tool with our sprouting kits(perspex pliers), to make this easier or you might already have some fine long nose pliers available. Click to hide.

Chickpea soaking in probiotic nutrients, this is done overnight or during the day to begin the cycle and then once a day for 10 – 30 minutes. The reason you bother to do this is basically to make a superfood more super as the peas absorb all the extra micronutrients and trace elements and then deliver them to you in the most bioavailable way. Click to hide.

Because sprouted chickpeas are best eaten in the 1st few days of growth, you may wish to prolong your opportunity to eat them by storing them. So firstly, a day after the overnight soak remove the damaged seeds as previously mentioned, and then wrap them in a tea towel and pat them down after 6 to 8 hours removing most of the surface moisture then put them in a container lined with paper towel or cloth. You can see this in the bottom part of the picture where they are stored as suggested above and then after 4 days they have grown in the fridge but this would have happened in 2 days outside the fridge. Another method is to hang them in a cool dry place inside a mesh bag to promote the surface drying process before storage. Click to hide.

Here we see them added to a wrap, 1st picture is with guacamole and small grape tomatoes then adding some loose sprouts and then finally some Microgreen cuttings, I like hot so I also add Tabasco chili sauce (no sugar). Click to hide.

This is how I make hummus using sprouted chickpea. Again soak overnight with your probiotic nutrients rinse thoroughly maybe leave for 12 hours, then I mix the lemon juice with the tahini, add 10 mil of soya sauce instead of salt. Slowly add the chickpea and using your blender (a handheld blender will be fine if you are only doing small amounts) when the paste starts to form add about 30 mills of oil e.g. olive flaxseed. Now being alive, this product is not going to last very long so you need to eat it in the next couple of days if you want it to last slightly longer then cook the chickpeas for a few minutes in boiling water and add some colloidal silver to the mix.

Sprouting 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). Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge using the storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip) then restart your next batch. Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Sm. x 1
Sprout Kit Sm. x 2

Basic sprouting kit consisting of 2 sprouting colanders with covers along with 250ml of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage kit(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). 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. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

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. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

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.

Sprouting How to & Info.

330x245mm Tray Kits

Microgreen 330x245mm Kit 01

Basic kit 01 (Microgreen Rect. Tray 330x245mm) which gives you everything you need to get started except for the seeds. You get one tray plus a grill insert, 3 L of Vermiculite growing medium(crushed rock that has been heated to give it a popcorn like effect, good for holding air and water). 250 ml of bio activated organic fertiliser, 1 foldout insect trap, 1 Perspex tool for flattening the growing medium and pressing the seeds into it plus the option of a cover.. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Microgreen 330x245mm Kit 01
2xTrays 3x5W LED

Microgreen Base kit 3x 5W LED. There are many ways you can grow microgreens and some ways depending on the seed type, for instance, growing SnowPea and Wheatgrass, is made a lot easier if you are able to lift the grill above the reservoir, this gives more room for the large root mass and also means the growing medium can stay dry alleviating the problem of seeds rotting and causing mould. The SnowPea is the Queen of green leaf and is the base of all of my salads. This is why we include the 4 tab set that sits on the outside of the reservoir (part 16 in the picture). We have also made some acrylic tweezers which help you remove ungerminated seeds, (part 8 in the picture). An acrylic flattening tool (part 9 in the picture), it’s good to press the seeds into the growing medium before you spray them to ensure they come in contact with moisture, especially when you using the cover. We give you 2 types of cable ties one narrow and one wide, the narrow one is for attaching the light bracket to the stand and securing the cable, the wider cable tie is for securing the horizontal movement of the lights, also supplying a method of securing the sticky in stray insect trap. The power supply is 36 W, so you can comfortably add 6X5 West lights i.e. another shelf without purchasing another power supply or connectors (parts 12 & 13 in picture). Part 14 attaches to the base of the grill ensuring the grill does not sag in the centre leading to an uneven distribution of water, especially useful for potted plants and punnets. Part 17 is 6 punnets that will fit into the sprouting tray, normally you would use these in a taller shelf system, they can be either placed in the base or on top of the grill, personally I just used 5 which gives me a gap at the front in the middle and I place them in the base of the tray and I can easily see when water needs to be added, you may wish to start them on the shelf and then move them to another shelf where they can grow a little bit taller. We also give you 2 trays, when in stock a choice of 2 colours, having to trays is particularly useful if you’re doing microgreens that turnaround in 2 weeks, as you can germinate the next tray on the top shelf which is sitting above the lights getting their warmth from them thus exhilarating their germination. So if you are just doing 2-3wks microgreens in the trays such as Radish, SnowPea, Kale, Broccoli, then this small height space and is all that is required. You can also grow the Coriander and Rocket in the trays with the addition of the pelletised fertiliser or you can use the punnets which is a better option, but you will need to keep them trimmed or move to a larger shelf height.

We have 3 of LED lights, for our single shelf lights, 10W, 25W, 100W. 10W is sufficient for short-term microgreens, 25W is good for short or longer term microgreens e.g. rocket coriander and small to medium height pot plants. The 100W is best for fruiting/budding plants that require more power. All the lights are heatsink and do not require fans. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.
