You might want to sprout black oil sunflower seeds if you are interested in organic gardening. Although this is not difficult as you might think it to be, you should take some precautions. First, you need to make sure you use the proper potting medium. You'll need at least 2 cups of potting soil with drainage holes to prevent the seeds from sinking into the soil. Next, cover the seed with shredded wood or clay.

I am a commercial micro-greens grower and have purchased many thousands of dollars of seed from Todd's Seeds. The overall quality of their products are outstanding. I have had only one problem when I received some pea seed that had been frozen. Todd's took care of the problem at their expense in a couple of days. I could not have been happier. I would recommend Todd's Seeds to anyone interested in growing micro-greens.
