This summer, try your hands at some spot gardening. Here are a few tips on how we can grow our own little bunch of Microgreens with simple tips.
What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are baby plants of greens, herbs, and other vegetables that are packed with beneficial enzymes. They are easy to grow, economical, and require less space.
How are they different from sprouts?
Unlike sprouts, microgreens require sunlight and soil to grow. While sprouts are eaten roots-to-leaves, microgreens are trimmed at the base and consumed. You can have microgreens with your salad or use them as pizza toppings.
What is the nutrient value of microgreens?
Microgreens outperform their mature counterparts in nutrients — they’re rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. According to research, the nutrient levels in these baby plants can be up to nine times higher than those found in mature greens!
