Threshing Seed with a Rubber
After we discovered the rubber mat technique for edible grains, we found that
it works well for getting smaller seed out of their husks too.
We have done this now with:
- Proso Millet
- Candlestick Millet
- Finger Millet
- Leeks & Onion (tread very lightly!)
The crucial thing is that the seed and chaff need to be really dry, so that
the husks crumble when you roll them around with your foot.
Then either winnow the seed or pass it through a series of screens to remove
chaff & dust.

Due to daft seed laws, some rare veg seeds can only be supplied to members of our Seed Club. But membership costs just one penny per annum. When we process your order, you will be charged
a penny for a year's Seed Club Membership. For more details see our terms and conditions.
Gardeners Should Save their Own Seed:
Because none of these seeds are hybrids,
you can save your own seed for future use: there's no need to buy new each year.
Saving your own is easy. You will get great seed, and great vegetables adapted to your local conditions.
Do have a go - read the seedsaving instructions we provide with every order, and also on this site.
