Microgreens Growing GuideNutritious - Organic - Beautiful - Easy to
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!
