Our Research & Development facility is currently home to a micro seed trial. The trial is designed to explore the potential of a multi-level growing system which we are developing for supermarkets and kitchens.
As an improvised and low-mess substrate we’re using expandable confetti paper in punnets to begin the germination process. Propagation lids are placed over the trays whereupon the seeds are allowed to grow for several days. Once the small seedlings have created a canopy the propagation lids can be removed. Harvesting can take place between 7-10 days and the process can quickly, cleanly and easily be started all over again.
The seeds we have used for the trial (pictured) are Amaranth, Radish, Red Basil, Mizuna and Mustard.
