Learning how to grow microgreens could be a lucrative study – especially if you have limited gardening skills, space, and time. They’re quick to grow (1-3 weeks from seed to harvest). They have a high yield to space ratio. Microgreens are suitable for all climates and they grow all year round. Chefs love them for their nutrition and culinary properties. And they require minimal investment (time and effort).
But just as with any other crop, productivity comes down to your gardening practices. For this reason, Epic Gardening has brought us this comprehensive ‘dos and don’ts’ tutorial video guide for aspiring microgreen gardeners.
Common varieties include spinach, amaranth, basil, celery, chervil, coriander, lettuce, kale, parsley, radish, peas, arugula, and beets. The best seeds to plant are relative to your local market and the prevailing / anticipated demand. And no; there are no special seeds for growing microgreens — but it’s best to use certified organic seeds that are free of potentially harmful pesticides and fungicides.
Materials/Equipment: Container/tray, organic seeds of your choosing, growing medium, spray bottle, a gardening light source, and a covering cloth.
Planting the Seeds: When planting the microgreen seeds, it’s best to use fine-grain soil that allows the roots to move with minimal resistance. First pour some water into the container, then add the soil (leaving some space at the top). PS: You may have to pre-soak some seeds such as sunflowers and wheat to speed up their germination.
Growing Tips: Sprinkle the seeds evenly over the growing medium — avoiding large pockets or chunking. Spray a light mist of water over the seeds to help kickstart their germination. Depending on the seeds, cover the bed to block out light and wait for the seeds to pop up.
Harvesting: Once the seeds germinate to around 3 inches tall (again, depending on the species), use a pair of scissors to snip the stems.
