Are you ready? Allright, let's go!
- Pour hot water over the seeds.
- Let them soak in lukewarm water for 12 hours.
- Are the swollen? Great! Then you can plant them.
- Are they not swollen yet? Repeat step 1 & 2
Let's get sowing!
- Fill your favourite plastic, glass or metal planter with well draining soil. We prefer soil with coco peat fibre, but you can also use standard soil and add some sand and perlite.
- You can always plant some seeds together, but make sure they have enough space to sprout.
- Moisten the soil. From now on, this is your new life goal. Get it tattooed, paint it on your wall, but never ever forget it.
- Put the seeds on the soil. Just like that. Don't cover them up. Merely press them in the ground for a bit, but be careful!
- Now cover your planter. You can use glass, a glass bell, plastic, a plastic lid, your cat or - if you can't find anything else - cling film or a plastic bag.
- Put your freshly sown babies in a warm and bright spot. And check them every day. At least three times. You never know...
Is it almost readyyyy???
Now the hard part has started: WAITING. It can take up to 3 months for the seeds to start sprouting.
Yep, that's a loooong time. Sorry. But in the meanwhile, you can give your granny a call, bake 17 cakes or check out our blogs.
