How to grow microgreens garden
Growing microgreens at home is very simple, also without special equipment or gardening background: you just need a tray, your favorite vegetable seeds, a potting mix and… bright light!
The first step is preparing the seeds: to help seeds to germinate quickly you can soak them in warm water overnight.
The second step is preparing the seed-starting mix: just remoisten it, then sprinkle warm water on the mix and blend until it is uniformly damp.
The third step is to sowing the seeds: sprinkle them on all the mix surface and press (just a little!). From this moment, you need to water the seeds every day. You can use a spray bottle to keep them uniformly wet and to prevent seeds dislodging. Remember: seed should never dry out, so check them every day and eventually cover the tray with a damp cloth.
Time to harvest! When your microgreens are ready, use scissors gently to cut them just above the mix and start wondering in which delicious recipe you can use them.
