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.
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.
