You’ll find the best planting rate is approximately 12 ounces of seeds for a 10×20 tray.

Use soil to plant the seeds as this is their preferred growing medium.

It is a good idea to cover the tray with a blackout lid or something similar for 3 or 4 days. If you look after just 2 days you should see signs of germination occurring.

It is important to keep the soil damp during this period, but not to make it soggy.

The first leaves are likely to be yellow but these ill quickly go green once the sun hits them. You should be able to harvest your first crop in just 6-12 days.

You should wash the plants after harvesting them and be gentle handling them.

If you wish to cheat a little you can start your seeds off in a colander. This will allow you to rinse them and keep them moist while they start to sprout.
