Here are some of the most frequent questions (and answers) I have received.
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 shoots) 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 the 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.

- Studies have shown that many microgreens often contain up to 40 times more nutrients than full-grown plants.
- Kids are more likely to try and eat new foods they have nurtured and grown themselves.
- 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. They’re perfect for those with limited time and can be grown indoors in a place as simple as a window sill or the kitchen bench, even in the kid’s room.
