This tool is used in this situation to firstly flatten the surface of the growing medium, and then to gently press the seeds into the growing medium, so that the moisture from the growing medium comes in contact with the seeds (more important with respect to large seeds like peas where you are just using the cover) also if you are covering with a medium then use this tool to press the covering material down onto the seeds.

Product Info.

This basic kit (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.
Regarding the cover if you are just going to be using small seeds such as broccoli, cress, kale etc then it’s best just to cover them with another layer of the Vermiculite. However if you doing larger seeds such as SnowPea FieldPea and even Radish then the cover is very useful not only does it save you another layer of vermiculite when it comes to the SnowPea it allows you to keep check on seeds that may have started to rot. See the SnowPea seeds and check out the procedure that I use.
The other thing that you will need is a sheet of paper towel, I purchased the cheap ones at Coles that only have one layer (easier for the roots to penetrate), these paper towels have the perfect width to fit the tray as you will need this to stop the vermiculite falling through the holes in the tray. Of course you can also purchase much more expensive solutions such as hemp matting but the costs compared to paper towel are significantly different.
Another option is to use coconut fibre mixed or not with some of vermiculite, as the base layer, when this is damp it will hold together and not fall through the slots, and then just use the vermiculite as a covering when necessary. I used to use this method, the reason I stopped is that it’s much easier just to use the vermiculite as the coconut fibre has to be rehydrated and that’s just another step that I can do without in a busy day, but having said that when mixed with the vermiculite it will give you slightly better results.
