If you've been thinking that microgreens are just a delicacy you get while eating out, or that you needed a special seed to grow your own, you're in for a treat. Loads of common veggies, herbs, and even flowers can be grown as microgreens in your own home. The trick is simply to sow them densely and harvest them at soil level when they're 1-3" tall. Harvesting the plants so young means their flavors and nutrients are more concentrated: they're rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. And on top of that, they look fantastic when added to your meal. New to microgreens or looking for the perfect microgreens container? Take a look at our gorgeous, plastic-free Microgreens Kit.
