Snow Pea seeds are quite large and have a light green colour. Click to hide.
Here we see Side Lifters being used with SnowPea microgreens, as soon as the cover and suspect seeds are removed, we attach the lifters and make sure that there is only a small amount of water in the base. As the growing medium has been kept moist with the cover to promote germination, now we want the top layer to dry out as the roots will now be penetrating into the reservoir below, this will greatly reduce the chance of mould appearing on the seeds. Similarly for wheatgrass. Click to hide
Set of 4 lifted tabs designed to elevate the grill section of the tray on the outside edge. This has 2 functions one to create a larger reservoir of water and 2 to allow the growing medium on the surface to remain dry (important for Pea and Wheatgrass where mould can be a problem if too much moisture exists on the surface of the growing medium). Click to hide.
Here we see the Acrylic Tweezers, being used to remove a mouldy seed. Note to the left there are a couple of seeds that are yellowish, these have the potential to develop mould, so using the tweezers to secure the seed, place your fingers around the seed and give it a gentle squeeze and the cover will slide off, it is this covering that causes the mould to develop, in the case of the white seeds the outer covering has dried out and will not be a problem once the top layer of the vermiculite dries out.

Snow Pea growing in vermiculite and our organic-based nutrients, they are best cut at an early stage around 2 weeks and stored in the fridge inside a cotton bag which is then placed inside a container or a plastic bag.. Click to hide.
Snow Pea on the left and Field Pea on the right at about one week. If you want to use the Field Pea in salad then you need to just cut the top leaves as the stalk is uncomfortably chewy, this is not the case with the SnowPea even after 2 weeks. Click to hide.

Snow Pea (USA)- a dwarf variety ideal for growing as a Microgreen but can also be grown full-size for the seed pod or just for picking the new leaf. 90+% Germ. Untreated & Tested free of Pathogens eg Salmonella, e-coli etc
Snow Pea sprouts(USA)
There are basically 3 ways of growing snow peas,
- Microgreen or Vertical Sprout, this is where you grow them densely together as a sprout and harvest them at 2-3 weeks, this method uses either a small amount of growing medium e.g. coco fibre and or vermiculite and or vermiculite or using no growing medium using one of our grills, which goes in the base of one of the rectangular trays.
- The second method, is where you plant them in a deeper pot and allow them to grow to about 30 cm and then you start picking the top couple of leaves as they appear, this can be repeated for several months.
- The third method is to let the plant grow to seed and harvest the snow pea pods that you are familiar with, being a dwarf variety it will grow to 1-2m, obviously the density of the seeds being planted becomes less with each method.
This is a most versatile plant & the abundance of nutritious leaves that melt in your mouth will give you a delicious nutritious base for any salad (also great to add to stir-fry). Feeding your snow peas with our bio-activated nutrients ensures that you will be receiving a nutrient supplement in the most living available form. To do this you will require a sunny window, or use one of our low power light growing kits, and 12 minutes once a week for replanting, assuming you replant 1- 3 trays once per week.
Growing Snow Peas just using liquid nutrient in the base of the tray.
This is the method, basically you soak and rinse the seeds every day for 2 days in the summer and 3 days in the winter, at the end of this time the single root of the Snow pea will have grown to approximately 15mm long. You now individually place each pea with its root down through each alternate slot in the grill, you then take the tray to where it can sit in a sunny or under a light, position, you then fill the base of the tray until the water/nutrient level comes up to the base of the grill ie so the tail of the pea is touching the water, and that’s all you have to do for the 1st week plus or minus depending on temperature, until the water level has disappeared. For the remaining week you just add a small amount of water/nutrient into the base of the tray, not filling, so you are allowing plenty of aeration for the roots. This process takes a little bit more time at the beginning but the ease and lack of attention after this point is greatly worth it. Also to note, because the seed dries out there is less chance for the seeds to rot i.e. a very clean method.
Tip:- the more light that the Snow pea have, the larger the leaf and the less stem, if you do not have enough light than the plant will put more energy into stem growth ie in search of light.
We have also designed some Perspex pliers specifically for picking out suspect Snow pea or Field pea seeds. Select yes if you would like us to include them with your order, the default is no because obviously once you have one set then unless you lose them you don’t need us to put them in every time.

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.

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.
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.

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.
