Microgreen Instructions:

  • Soak: No 
  • Germination time: 2 -4 days
  • Harvest from: 7 - 10 days
  • Flavour/texture: Mild mustard flavour


1. Sow your seeds directly on your prepared growing surface - no need to cover with soil if using.
2. Place a tray directly on the seeds and weigh down to ensure good contact with the growing medium and to help the roots dig deep. Mustard is a mucilagenous seed so take care when inspecting your seeds as they may stick to the tray.
3. Keep weighed until the seedlings have germinated and are beginning to push against the weight.
4. Place in blackout when the seedlings are about 2cm tall - use blackout to stretch your seedlings to your desired length.
5. Place in a sunny location or under grow lights to green up your microgreens.
6. Harvest as soon as the seed leaves (cotelydons) have developed fully.

Sprouting Instructions:

We do not recommend mustard for jar sprouting.
