Sprouts & Microgreens

Growing sprouts and microgreens is a wonderful, easy way to include healthy, tasty greens in your diet all year round. The process is simple and takes up a minimal amount of time and space for quick and nutritious rewards.

Sprouts and microgreens are powerhouses of nutrition and flavour. They are sweet, tender, and oh-so delicious!

To enable you to grow your own at home, Livingseeds has created unique blends and single-seed options that can be used for sprouting or grown as microgreens / baby leaf. Many varieties can be used for all growing options, it’s just a matter of preference on your part. We have also put together a Microgreens Growing Kit that comes with everything you need, including a complete grow guide to enable you to get off to a good start.

How to grow microgreens

These quick tips will have you producing your own microgreens at a fraction of the cost of store-bought microgreens.

  1. Microgreens are basically densely grown seedlings that are cut at the cotyledon (seed leaf) stage.
  2. Most seeds benefit from an initial dark growth phase, and many varieties benefit from being weighted (2-3 days).
  3. Once germinated, bright light is an important requirement for healthy, tasty microgreens.
  4. Shallow trays with drainage holes are important (see The Livingseeds Microgreen Trays).
  5. Fill trays with a good, well-enriched, fine soil mix.
  6. Soak the seed for 4-8 hours (See the table for specific variety info).
  7. Thoroughly moisten the soil, sprinkle your microgreens seed of choice onto the mix, and cover lightly.
  8. Germination takes approx. 3-6 days and then another approx. 10-14 days to harvest.
  9. Cut when they are less than 6cm tall for microgreens, or more than 4 true leaves for baby leaf.
  10. Set up successive trays for a continual harvest.
