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!
