What are Microgreens

Microgreens are little edible plants bursting with flavour and nutrition grown from the seeds of vegetables and herbs.  They are older than a sprout (root, seed and shoot) but younger than a full-grown plant.  They are approximately 3 to 6cm and harvested (picked) just after the very young first true leaves appear.  The stem, cotyledons (seed leaves) and first set of true leaves are all edible.  They are grown from the same seeds to grow full size plants but using a lot more seeds planted close together.

Benefits of Microgreens

Big on nutrition microgreens are the way to go. Studies have shown that many microgreens often contain up to 40 times more nutrients than full grown plants and best of all ours are organic, so no nasty chemicals.
Fussy eaters – well microgreens may be the start to your solution. Kids are more likely to try new foods when they have participated in the process of growing and tending to their own little plot.
They are the perfect accompaniment to a well balanced diet and can be enjoyed all year round by all the family.
They are a great introduction for kids into gardening and learning about sustainable living.
