To grow microgreen organic seeds, simply place 1/4 cups of microgreen starter solution in a shallow paper container and saturate for two weeks.

Microgreen has a mild smell and taste. You won’t notice it is there until you smell it! Fresh cut grasses and weeds also grow well on this plant. There is very little maintenance. It only needs to be watered once or twice a week to stay green.
The name microgreen comes from the small round leaves that grow on the lower leaflet of this perennial. The flowers will appear as a cluster of three to six blooms, up to six inches in diameter. In late summer the entire plant will burst open to produce several new shoots. These shoots grow to one inch in diameter before falling off. The flower heads only remain for a few days before falling off too.
You can replant the plant as needed, with more or less seeds. In order to get the best results, you should plant the seeds about a foot away from each other. This ensures they receive enough air. If they receive too much sun they may not bloom.

Set the seedlings in the holes with their roots until spring. In early spring, remove them to see how they fair with growing microgreens.
