What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are young seedlings with only their first couple of leaves grown. Because they are harvested so young, the flavours are much more concentrated and intense. They can be grown all-year-round. They take such small amount of space, they are like a mini allotment at home!
Did You Know
You can get microgreens like watercress or rocket but also cabbages, chard or peas, each one with their own unique and intense flavours, distinctive textures, eye-catching colours and nutrients!
