 Buckwheat Lettuce How to grow it

  1. Soak unhulled buckwheat seed overnight.
  2. Sprout in a sprout bag until the root is about 5mm long. When sprouting, rinse regularly. It can take quite a number of days to sprout. I nearly threw them out thinking nothing was happening.
  3. Put about 2-3cm of compost-rich soil onto a container. I used a round plastic tray used for party finger snacks (ideal size and depth) another option is a large plastic plant saucer. Whichever, buy two to use one as a lid.
  4. Pour the sprouted buckwheat seed onto the soil and water (not too much as there is no drainage).
  5. Cover with the second tray turned upside down over the seed tray.
  6. When the plants have pushed the tray up about 2cm you can remove the top tray.
  7. Make sure the tray is kept moist, it has plenty of light and good ventilation.
  8. When the leaves are well developed and the stems are long cut and enjoy your buckwheat lettuce in salad or in your green juice.
