A new addition to the seeds and kits is the Microgreens Kitchen Seed Sprouter (RRP £11.99) – a convenient and economical way to produce fresh and tasty sprouts and microgreens on a windowsill.

Each reusable kit contains four clear trays with drainage holes for sprouting seeds or growing microgreens and one coloured base tray to collect water after it has filtered through the clear trays.

‘Big hit with customers’

Helen Clayton, Johnsons brand manager, said: “Our Microgreens range has been a big hit with customers and we believe the kitchen sprouter kit is an ideal add-on to the collection.

“Modern and easy to use, it couldn’t be simpler to add vibrant colour, taste and crunch to just about any dish.”

Sprouts are ready in as little as three-five days and microgreens from seven days.

Seeds include best-selling Microgreens Beetroot (RRP £2.80), Alfalfa and Mung Bean sprouting seeds (RRP £2.35 and £2.80).

Fresh and punchy flavour

Continued to be loved by top chefs and best described as ultra-baby leaf vegetables, microgreens add a fresh and punchy flavour to just about any dish from sandwiches to steaks and soups. They can also be used as a simple and tasty garnish.

Sprouting seeds are fantastic for adding to oriental dishes. Why not try growing fenugreek with its mildly spicy flavoured shoots, which make a superb addition to stir-fries and salads?

Also available are Micro Snips, for a simple way to harvest your crops. The compact size and spring action handles ensure they are easier to use than scissors.

The Microgreens range of seeds and kits are available now from leading garden retailers. or online at www.johnsons-seeds.com.
