SEEDS

I am a little dissapointed as im getting only approx a 50 to 60 per cent growth rate and the rest is nothing.I have to throw it out.I have tried several areas no light,small amount of light ,dark draws,cupboards allowing air flow but no improvement.I tried using warm water also for the first 7 to 10 hours at the beginning.Not sure what else i can do except buy from another supplier to try.Maybe its old stock.?Rosina.

Hi Rosina...so sorry to hear. Please get in touch and we will send you another packet

Keeps on moulding

I do not know why but after first three successful batches any other batch kept on moulding - it never drained properly when rinsing I assume. It is very frustrating, especially for the price of the jars and the organics seeds I bought.

I am leaving the sprouting for some weeks to give it another go, but really very disappointed after the first success…..

If anyone has some tips, or the same experience, let me know.

Thank you for you feedback Jana... there shouldn't be any issues with drainage. However sprouting is susceptible to temperature and seasonality
