INSTRUCTIONS: Microgreen Mini Grow Kit
Here be the instructions for your mini microgreen grow kit. Microgreens are small but mighty leaves that pack a real punch when it comes to flavour and nutrition. Growing your own veg couldn’t be easier! The beauty of microgreens is you can grow all year round. All you need is a windowsill. We hope you find these instructions super easy to follow, but if you have any questions give us a shout on Instagram 🙂
Find a small dish or bowl to pop the coir in - we’re going to need to hydrate it to turn it into soil!
Pour 50ml of water over the coir and watch it expand. Add more water if there are still dry bits. TOP TIP: using warm water will speed things up a bit.
Give the coir a mash with a fork. If you find any dry bits add a bit more water.
Transfer the the coir to your cardboard grow tub. You won’t need it all! Any spare can go in your food waste bin or on your flower beds.
Scatter the seeds evenly over the surface of the coir and drizzle a bit more water over the top to make sure they are nice and damp.
Put the lid on the tub and place it somewhere warm and the seeds will start to germinate. Check on your seeds each day. If they are looking a little dry you can add a smidge more water. Once the seeds are ready for some light they’ll start to push the lid off! When this happens it’s time to show them the light.
Pop your microgreens on a window sill and watch them grow! They’ll be ready in about one week but will keep going as long as you keep them watered. We’ve had some on our windowsill for over a month!
