Seed Collection from Sow Seeds Ltd
Not so long ago Cress was as near as we got to a microleaf and although little Cress shoots still pack a peppery punch to an egg sandwich or salad, the advent of TV shows like MasterChef have shown how easy it is to pimp up our dinner time with so many other tasty and colourful mini shoots.
It is surprising how quick and easy these little shoots are to grow in your own home all year round. Just grow as you would traditional cress on damp cottonwool or sow seeds into quality compost. The cottonwool method gives a cleaner, less messy shoot. We use a water bottle spray to ensure the seeds are not disturbed when watering and always keep the cottonwool damp. And in as little as 2 weeks you can have little immature shoots that have the intense flavour of the maturer leaf.
We have selected 10 of our favourites that can pep up mealtimes with flavour, colour and make a meal look more so much more appealing and impressive.
- Amaranth Red Army
- Broccoli Microleaves
- Beetroot Microleaves
- Mustard Ruby Streaks
- Onion Shoots
- Pea Shoots Serge
- Radish Microleaves
- Red Cabbage Microleaves
- Sweetcorn Shoots Royalty
