Coriander growing inin micro punnets contained within 330 X 245 mm trays, I harvest these like getting a haircut just trim the top leaves in a bunch, other leaves will grow to replace them. Click to hide.
Coriander seed are rather large in comparison to Rocket, and are slow to germinate, pre-soaking in warm water with some nutrient can accelerate the germination process. Click to hide.
Coriander at an early stage in micro punnets. Here we see the punnets sitting on top of a grill in a 470 x 170 mm rectangular tray. The advantage of the grill is that once the roots have grown through then you have a reservoir meaning less watering, personally I tend to not use the grill in this situation and just grow the punnets in the tray, the reason being is that it's easier to take the tray to the kitchen bench for harvest without having to worry with the possibility of excess water spilling.

Coriander at an early stage in micro punnets. Here we see the punnets sitting in a 470 x 170 mm rectangular tray(no grill). The tray is sitting in a bookshelf stand with sprout lights, you can see that the light is extended out from the shelf above and rotated so it shines back in, taking advantage of the reflective white surface of the cupboard that it is in. Click to hide.
Coriander at an early stage growing directly in the sprout tray which is covered with paper towel with the vermiculite as a growing medium, even though this will work I still tend to use the punnets as it seems to grow better and again easy to manage. With these trays I grow them in the tray base and then when the roots come through I add the grill. The tray is sitting in a stand with sprout lights. Click to hide.

- Soak seeds overnight in bio activated organic nutrients.
- Rinse clean, spread a layer of coconut fibre/vermiculite/potting mix, spread seeds, cover with a thin layer of Vermiculite (a crushed rock that is heated and forms a popcorn like effect with great aeration and water holding ability).
The simplest way to get started is just purchase some seeds and one of our tray kits, which are very similar in functionality, the main choice would probably be the space you have available & or quantity you wish to grow. If you want to grow more than one tray, which would be recommended for this particular Microgreen, as you would probably want to cycle 4 trays so you had one tray ready each week, then we have a range of stands with optional LED lights (i.e. if you do not have a sunny window to place your Microgreens next to).
Or you can simply purchase the individual parts and start as small as you like e.g. a tray block of coconut fibre and some worm wee nutrient.
