Microgreens
Microgreens, otherwise known as the babies of the plant world, make growing your own veggies easy for anyone! Not only are they simple to take care of, but they are also full of nutrients and strong concentrated tastes. These young veggies allow people to know that they’re putting healthy and clean foods into their bodies. With the rise of awareness surrounding clean eating, Microgreens are a great place to start!

You may be asking yourself what are Microgreens and what makes them so appealing?

Microgreens are super easy to grow! All you need is a bright light, a container (which could be a recycled plastic tray), good potting soil, the seeds and you’re good to go. With all these conditions met, Microgreens can grow all year long in your home. This means fresh veggies whenever you need them regardless of the season.

However, if you don’t have any areas with bright light in your home, you can purchase a grow light which works the same as natural lighting.

As for planting, put your soil into a well-drained tray and then plant the seeds on top. Once you’ve scattered the seeds evenly in the tray, just sprinkle a small layer of soil on top and mist it until damp. Although this depends on how much light and heat your Microgreens are getting, they usually like to be misted twice a day. Don’t let the soil get soaking wet, but usually, the plants like to have consistently moist soil.

To make things even easier, here at Arts Nursery we sell Microgreen kits which give you everything you need to succeed! GrowZorbs are dishwasher safe microgreen grow-kits. Plus, they are small in size, so they won’t take up much space. They will last you a long time, so it is a perfectly sustainable option!

Once planted, you are pretty much set if you follow those steps. Another awesome thing about these guys is that they are pretty quick-growing. Most Microgreens will be ready to harvest in about 7-21 days!

The simplicity of Microgreens isn’t the only reason why these are such a great option. Microgreens are shown to be even more concentrated in nutrients than mature vegetables. For example, Microgreen broccoli has 70x more phytonutrients than regular broccoli. These baby veggies ensure you are getting all the health benefits you need plus more!

There are tons of options for Microgreens, this includes arugula, kale, beets, broccoli, basil, and swiss chard.

Microgreens provide the opportunity for anyone and everyone to grow their own vegetables whether you live in an apartment or basement suite. It is a great way to feel in control of your healthy living choices.
