How to Sow

  • To start indoors, sow in trays filled with seed starting formula.
  • Sow evenly and thinly in rows 2 inches apart. Cover firmly and keep evenly moist.
  • As soon as seedlings emerge, provide plenty of light on a sunny windowsill or grow seedlings 3-4 inches beneath fluorescent plant lights turned on 16 hours per day, off for 8 hours at night. Raise the lights as the plants grow taller. Incandescent bulbs will not work for this process because they will get too hot. Most plants require a dark period to grow, do not leave lights on for 24 hours.

How to Grow

  • Thinning is not necessary for microgreens.
  • Microgreens are easy and fast to grow. Keep plants clean of soil and dirt.
  • If planted outdoors, keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. Avoid disturbing the soil around the plants when weeding.
  • Keep plants well watered during dry periods to promote rapid, uninterrupted growth. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It’s best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.

Harvest and Preserving Tips

  • Harvest small seedlings when they are between the sizes of a sprout and a baby leaf vegetable, usually when there are just 2-3 true leaves.
  • Clip young leaves at the base of seedlings around 2 inches high with clean scissors.
  • Rinse thoroughly and lightly pat dry before consumption.
  • Store in sealed plastic bags and refrigerate.

Microgreens Burpee's Mix is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Micro Greens are best I planted the micro greens at the beginning of the summer. I am still reaping the benefits of these wonderful greens. Although they have grown larger and not as sweet, they are still very good. I think of the health benefits as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Packet is not the same as advertised The packet actually contains beet, pak choi, kohlrabi, broccoli and radish -- not peas and chard as advertised on website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Greens that Keep on Giving! These little babies are the bees knees! I sowed directly Mid September and they sprouted in less than two weeks! Their baby greens are tender and perfect in my wraps, sandwiches, and pitas. The more mature leave are great for salads. If that wasn't enough, the beets and radishes are still in my garden now doing their thing! I let them go in our box and the Pak Choi has given us an abundance of leaves and several actual heads! I cannot wait for the skins on the China Rose Radishes to turn pink so that I can pull and harvest. Highly recommend, keeping in mind that our winter has been very "Fall" like so far with minimal freezing. Very impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun little "sprouts" to grow I planted these the 4th of this month and today- 13 days later -they were ready to be picked. As for me, I am simply growing them on my window sill in a shallow, oblong planter. I planted more today and this time, I've decided to plant them closer together as I don't think a little crowding will upset them. These have abit of a bitter twang to them and I think a nice alternative to lettuce on a sandwhich. Next time, I'm going to put them atop a salad too. Easy and fast growing-I like 'em. =-D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hungry Bugs v. Me I'm having too much fun growing these in a container on my deck. The back of the packet said to harvest in about 10 to 15 days. I let them go a little longer. The beets I will let grow to maturity. But for the rest, it's me versus the bugs that seem to like the leaves as much as I do. I'd rather eat, so I harvest.
