YouTube: Growing Microgreens

With winter happening outside, we can bring more green into our lives (and meals) by growing microgreens. Microgreens are chock-full of concentrated nutrients. They are easy to grow indoors and will be ready in just a few weeks.

Our latest video shows you how to grow them indoors or outside, whatever your weather. Toss them on salads, in soups, and any other dish that needs a boost.

For windowsill gardening, check out the Knowing Nature microgreens kit mentioned in the video.

If you don’t have a nursery flat, use any container with drainage. Wide shallow bowls, boxes, old fruit containers, old nursery 6 packs. Anything that’s safe for growing food.

Growing Tip:

When growing indoors, place your tray in a sunny windowsill and rotate the sprouts toward the sun to keep them from leaning and growing leggy. No one likes a mouthful of stems, right? Direct sunlight will help keep them short and stocky.

Harvested microgreens are ready to eat.

    Hi! I want to grow microgreens and I wanted to know If it is possible to grow in a grow box like these ones here . The lights would be around 70cm from the microgreens so I was wondering if this is too far away

      Unless the light moves lower, or you can stack your seedlings up to the light, it’s too far away.
