Let's do a Christmas ornament !!

Grains of wheat, corn, broad beans, peas and lupin beans . .. No traditional Madeiran nativity scene is complete without them !! 

Searas (crop shoots) are part of the greenery used as Christmas decorations. According to this ancient tradition, seeds should be planted to germinate 10 days before Christmas day (after being left to soak for two or three days) to get the blessing of the baby Jesus to make the Island’s harvests bountiful.

Press play and follow all the steps to plant your own seara at your place !!
