Black Sunflower Seeds for Sprouting
Sunflower sprouts or microgreens are ready to harvest in as little as 10-14 days. These seeds sprout so quickly you can practically watch them grow! Sunflower sprouts are great for bulking up salads and filling in wraps. They are crunchy, juicy and have a slightly nutty-lemony flavour.
Sunflower sprouts are not only tasty, they have tremendous health benefits too. They are packed with minerals, vitamins, protein, potassium, folate and antioxidants, at levels which surpass most other sprouts. Sunflower sprouts are, without a doubt, in a league of their own.
Our black sunflower seeds can also be grown to full maturity. They will grow to approximately 5 feet tall and produce flowers approximately 30cm in diameter.

How to grow sunflower microgreens at home?
Growing sunflower microgreens is pretty easy. First soak the seed in cold water for 4 hours. Fill a grow tray with around 2-3 cm of coco fibre. Spread seeds evenly over the top of the coco and press down on the seeds so that the seed makes good contact with the soil. It is important that you mist the seeds to keep them moist during germination. Cover the seeds by placing a tray over them. Mist seeds at least 2 times a day and then remove tray on day 4. You can now stop misting sunflower sprouts and begin to bottom water. Place tray in sunny position, avoid too much direct sunlight.
