BLACK OIL SUNFLOWER SEEDS
are perfect for your wild birds as it is the best seed to attract
the widest variety to your feeders with a nutritious and energetic
food source for the cold days of winter. The black oil seeds have
very thin shells that make it easy for virtually all seed loving birds of
all sizes to crack open. The kernels within have a high fat content,
which is extremely valuable for birds in winter.
BOSS (Black Oil Sunflower Seeds) can be used to grow microgreen
shoots - aka Sunnys
Grow: Use a shallow flat, tray or clamshell packaging, and fill at least
once inch with clean soil. Sprinkle the seed thickly on top of the soil.
Lightly cover with soil without clumps. Water and keep moist to aid in
germination, but make sure to not let the soil become too soggy as mold
could develop. Some choose to soak, and rinse seeds a couple times, for
8-12 hours prior to planting to jumpstart germination and use less soil.
Cut: Let the plants grow to 3 inches or more tall and then carefully cut
above the soil level with a scissors
or pinch off with your fingers prior to the true leaves developing.
Rinse prior to use under fresh water.
Eat: Use in salads, for a snack, or for juicing.
