Growing Microgreens

Growing microgreens is so simple that even the non-green thumbed amongst us can do this. Microgreens are power-packed full of nutrients, vitamins & enzymes that are great for every meal of the day. With just these simple tools and method you can have these ready to harvest in 10-14 days.

You will need:

* Grow Tray - this has holes in the bottom to allow water in and roots out. You can also put a liner on the tray if you want to stop the soil from falling through.

* Drip Tray x 2 (one to grow in and one to cover with)

* Seed raising mix - whatever you can get from your local hardware.

* Seeds to grow - when you order the trays, I would suggest buying seeds as well. The standard seeds purchased from the hardware are not enough for what you need. The most cost-effective is Green Mizuna or Tatsoi and 100g is a good amount to start with, about $11 AUD for the 100g packets. Each grow tray will use approx 20g of seeds so you will have plenty left over for the next tray. If you are going all-in then buy the 500g so you don't need to stock up again for a long time.

Helpful other items:

* Spray bottle to mist the seeds

* small cup to scatter the seeds

* water to quarter-fill the drip tray

* warm place to put the greens
