What’s our story? We’re proud to be one of those pandemic start-ups, sometimes good things come from bad…
When the world went topsy-turvy in 2020 we (Richard and Amanda) took great comfort and pleasure from growing our own vegetables at home in the garden. We loved growing baby courgettes, prickly cucumbers, and wonky runner beans - finding it so rewarding to grow something ourselves, pick it from the garden, and eat it from our plates. It connected us more to our food. It reduced our environmental impact just a tiny bit. And we loved that feeling.
We wanted to help other people grow more food at home - not all their food, that would be a big ask. But to supplement their weekly shop with nutritious and natural goodies which they grew themselves on their windowsill. We wanted them to experience the same sense of achievement that we had felt that Summer. That’s how Sow Fresh was born.
We didn't even meet gardener Kate IRL* until 2021 when the rules relaxed. Her expertise in both growing and designing have been absolutely crucial to the success of Sow Fresh from the very start. She’s like the bees in the garden, nothing happens without her.
Together we hope we can help people discover something new and super-nutritious, create new wellness routines, and strengthen their connection with the food they eat.

Don’t fancy going outside to grow your own yummy goodies? No problem! I have the perfect solution...microgreens...I love microgreens because they germinate and grow quickly and can sit on your windowsill or kitchen worktop meaning they are easily accessible so you can just chop away at them with your scissors and add them to your dinner 😋 .
Microgreens what’s not to love? Quick and easy to grow and highly nutritious...The whole kit is really easy to use with clear step by step instructions and pre measured coir and seed packs...I would happily purchase to get loved ones growing at home 💚 .
Stunning microgreen kit from @sowfreshofficial. I am absolutely thrilled with the quality of this kit, the tubs are recycled plastic and dishwasher safe, it isn’t grown in soil but coir which is a byproduct of coconuts, this alone makes for excellent composting material once your microgreens have grown 🌱 ...I adore the wooden box design.
Micropinks!!!...I am officially in love with microgreens (pinks)...It amazes me that something so small and beautiful can pack such a nutritious punch!
I am particularly impressed with this company and its continuing prompt support . They have many more advanced kits for those wanting to go further with Microgreen growing. If you're new to Microgreens, I highly recommend this product and hope they continue to do well.
I really like the quality of the box and black tubs, how the amount of seeds and coir is measured out makes things very easy and the instructions are very clear. The kit is nice and compact too to fit on windowsills.
I purchased the Chomper, (Excellent Quality) and continue to have great success with all seeds. Richard was extremely helpful, pointing me in the right direction. I am certainly going to be buying from this company for a long time to come. Thank you for getting me started on micro greens.
