Vegetable Seeds from Sow Seeds Ltd
Onion shoots are a great way to grow flavourful thin green shoots that pack an oniony punch and make a lovely decorative garnish to top off dishes from soup to fish or chicken to canapes.
They can be grown as micro-leaves or sprouting seeds and are easy to grow. It is best to pre-soak seeds for 12 hours before sowing for sprouting seeds but this is not necessary for micro-leaves.
Onion Sprouting Seeds Information

|When to Sow:||
Indoors from January to December.
|How to Sow:||
For micro-leaves sow seeds 5mm deep into good quality seed compost and cover with vermiculite and water carefully. Can be sown on top of kitchen roll/cotton wool but extra care is needed to ensure the seeds do not dry out before germination.
For sprouting seeds, pre-soak seeds in water for 12 hours before rinsing seed and placing in sprouting jar. Rinse with water twice daily.
Keep seeds well-watered, use a spray water bottle so as not to displace the seeds when grown as micro-leaves.
