Looking After Me
You'll receive a digital Microgreen Growing guide when your delivery arrives, which will walk you through every step of planting and harvesting. Here's a bit more info to get you going.
Microgreens will do best on a warm sunny windowsill, like in your kitchen. Ideally they will get 4 hours of direct sunlight a day but don't worry if they don't- they'll just grow a little slower.
Water your microgreens every time the compost feels dry. Water evenly (your guide will contain some tricks to help you do this!). Your kit will contain nutritious compost, so you won't need any extra food.
Humidity & Temperature
Microgreens respond well to warmth, and are best in the kitchen or rooms which are generally warm.
Here's a bit more about your seed options. All of them are specially grown to be microgreens, and it takes as little as 5 days from your first shoots to harvest.
- Pea Shoots: Pea sprouts have a slightly nutty flavour and are full of fibre and protein, alongside vitamins B3, B5 and B6. They can be eaten raw or fried in stir-fries, and can easily be grown into larger plants if you want more!
- Radish: Our beautiful red radish microgreens are brilliant for salads and have a distinctive flavour.
- Rocket: The peppery flavour we know and love, but in a smaller sprout format. Get your winter vitamin C and antioxidants in.
- Broccoli Sprouts: Taking as little as 6 days to grow, broccoli sprouts have fantastic flavour and contain high levels of antioxidants.
- Beetroot: A beautiful deep purple colour, beetroot microgreens add colour to your salads and garnishes.
- White Mustard: An oldie but a goodie- you might have come across these little guys in salads. You can expect a slightly peppery taste and your white mustard seedlings are ready to eat when they're around 5cm tall.
- Baby Pak Choi: You're probably familiar with Pak Choi from stir-fries. A source of iron, Pak Choi tastes like spinach and cabbage had a love child.
- Mung Bean: Baby Mung Beans are a legume and a source of protein and amino acids and antioxidants. They're very versatile for curries, salads and soups. They taste slightly sweet, which is why they're a popular base for Asian desserts.
