How to Grow Microgreens: Nature’s Own Superfood
Fionna Hill 2010 (NZ)
Grow your own high-quality, fresh, nutritionally rich, quick, pest free and highly productive greens - raise microgreens! Here’s a way to add more flavour, colour and texture to your food even if you rent, are on water restrictions or have shady position or poor soil. Microgreens are larger than sprouts and smaller than baby salad greens; they are grown in soil or a soil substitute and much less seed is used than for sprouting. Microgreens take between 7 - 21 days to grow and are harvested by being snipped off, leaving the roots behind. You’ll be inspired by dozens of photos of lush, healthy greens grown in a huge variety of containers from eggshells to teacups to terracotta pots to bottles, pots and trays of all shapes and sizes. Includes profiles of twenty plants suitable for growing as microgreens, with nutritional values, best growing conditions, fabulous recipes, usage and storage suggestions for each. 107pp
Microgreens Growing Guide
Nutritious - Organic - Beautiful - Easy to Grow (AUS)
Microgreens are home-grown mini-greens: larger than sprouts and smaller than baby salad greens. They are classed as microgreens after they have produced at least two true leaves after the cotyledons (seed leaves) appear. Whereas sprouts are germinated seeds grown in dark, moist conditions and eaten whole, microgreens are grown in light, on soil or similar substrate and are harvested by cutting the stems, leaving the roots behind. Microgreens add flavour, colour, texture and nutrition to your food. They can be grown in pots, saucers, baskets, styrofoam boxes or in a garden bed. With just a few small containers you can have a range of vegetables it would take a large backyard to produce to full size and in a fraction of the time. This A4 sized, three fold, glossy cardboard guide shows how easy it is to grow microgreens. Beautifully illustrated with photographs of the seed and leaves for each of the 28 microgreens described; each profile includes suggested uses, germination times, ideal growing conditions and more. Step-by-step guides to growing in soil and with the hydroponic method are illustrated with clear diagrams. Create a beautiful garden in your kitchen or on your balcony in only weeks!
