Micro greens are edible immature greens, harvested with scissors less than a month after germination, when the plants are up to 2 inches tall. The stem, cotyledons (or seed leaves) and first set of true leaves are all edible.  Not to be confused with sprouts ? germinated seeds that are eaten root, seed and shoot.

Cultivation Advice Micro Kohlrabi Purple

  • In summer these can be sown direct outside protected from weather extremes, drying winds, direct hot sunlight and hungry garden pests.
  • For all year round indoors, Micro greens need bright direct sunlight to thrive (south facing windowsill / conservatory).   Leggy, weak, pale green shoots are a sign of not enough sunlight.
  • Use a container, tray or pot with the bottom covered with a potting mix or suitable growing medium, firmed down but not overly compressed.
  • Scatter seeds evenly and thinly on top of the soil. Press gently into the growing medium and light cover with a thin layer of the growing medium.   Plunge the container in water or spray the surface, covering with a clear lid or plastic wrap to maintain humidity until the seeds sprout.
  • The seeds should appear in three to seven days in 18-20 c, use a mister once or twice daily to keep the growing medium moist but not wet.
  • Once seeds have sprouted, remove the cover and continue to mist once or twice a day.
