How To Grow Alfalfa Microgreens: Place a tray with holes inside a tray with no holes. Fill the tray with no holes with 1 inch of fine compost. Compact the compost. Spread the Alfalfa microgreen seeds evenly over the compost, leaving a small bit of space between each seed. Press the seeds into the soil. Water the seeds and soil. Place a tray with no holes on top of the seeds and soil. Add roughly 2kg of weight into the tray, so the seeds are kept pressed into the soil.

After 3 - 4 days the Alfalfa microgreens will be pushing the weighted tray into the air. Remove the weighted tray, water the microgreens from the top and place them under a grow light, onto a window sill, or into light in a greenhouse. Water each day by pouring water into the bottom tray with no holes, until day 7 - 8.

Between day 7 - 8, harvest all of the microgreens using a sharp knife or scissors. Store the harvested microgreens in the refrigerator.
