How to grow microgreens
You will need
• A shallow container with holes in the bottom (we used recycled tomato punnets from the supermarket)
• Seed raising mix
• Spray bottle (an old bathroom cleaner spray bottle is fine but be sure to clean it out first) 1 Fill your container with seed raising mix.
2 Level and press the mix down firmly using a small block of wood.
3 Water gently then leave to drain for a few minutes.
4 Sprinkle seeds on top of the seed raising mix and lightly cover with a very fine layer of mix. (Check on the label for planting depth as some bigger seeds might need to be pushed down into the mix).
5 Place the tray in a warm, sheltered spot with plenty of light.
6 Spray with water when the seed raising mix starts to look a little dry, keeping it moist but not soaking wet.
