Whether you are thinking about starting to grow microgreens yourself, or if it is a gift for a loved one, this microgreens growing kit has everything needed for a beginner to get started growing microgreens.
Microgreens are miniature versions of typical vegetables/herbs/flowers. Essentially they are very young seedlings. They are full of flavour, colour and nutrients, and they are a lot of fun to grow. The time it takes to grow them ranges from 1 to 4 weeks depending on the variety. The varieties contained in this starter kit all grow in under 2 weeks when grown at room temperature.
They can be grown inside all year round on a window sill. They can also be grown using an artificial grow light or in a greenhouse/polytunnel, or in a conservatory.
They are a great way to introduce people (especially young people/children) to growing their own food, as they provide quick and easy results. Countless people have started with growing microgreens and then got the "bug" to continue their grow their own journey and moved on to full scale vegetable growing.
Microgreens growing is also great even for seasoned growers. As seasoned growers are surely missing the joy of growing and harvesting food throughout Winter months, microgreens provide a way to continue the cycle of growing and eating home grown food throughout Winter.
A great present for yourself or a loved one!
