[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]All the rage at the moment. Full of concentrated nutrients and enzymes, they’re a great way to stay healthy through winter. Here’s how to get started:

You need:

  • A block of palm coir
  • A planting tray
  • Vermiculite

Organic veggie seeds, such as mustard, cabbage, beets, radishes, kale and sunflowers, or a mixed pack

  1. Soak a palm coir block in water overnight. Fill your planting tray with the rehydrated coir.
  2. Use a wooden plank to level the palm coir. Do not compress the palm coir.
  3. Sprinkle seeds on the coir as evenly as possible.
  4. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of vermiculite, which helps to keep them moist.
  5. Water the seeds every day with a fine spay or using a watering can with a good even rose distribution.

Your microgreens should be ready for harvesting in 2-4 weeks. When they’re ready, simply cut the plants close to the soil surface and add them to smoothies, salads or stir-fries.
