FAQs – Sow Fresh


A: Microgreens are herbs and vegetables which are harvested at their early seedling stage when the first set of leaves appear. They are the stage of growth in-between sprouts and baby leaf - often thought to have the most flavour!

A: As they are harvested as seedlings, they can be sown more densely, and you can eat them within weeks of sowing. They’re fast, super-nutritious and an easy way to grow food in your kitchen which can be cut straight onto your plate.

A: The Nibbler (1 tray): 26cm (length) x 20cm (width) x 9.4cm (height)

The Grazer (2 trays): 49cm length x 20 cm depth x 9.4cm height

The Chomper (3 trays): 72cm length x 20cm depth x 9.4cm height

A: Everything you need to get going will be delivered in your microgreen grow kit.

A: A windowsill in the kitchen is perfect. Although in the different seasons they may benefit from moving around a bit for more/less warmth or light.

A: Yes, lights do help increase the height of the greens. You can buy one of our pre-selected ones in our shop.

A: Unlike modern industrial farming, with Microgreens we are more concerned about nutrient density than weight, however each gram is up to 40x more nutritious.

A: The seeds are a mixture of conventional and organic. All our seeds are untreated and non GMO - they've had no chemical application. They are completely traceable from the supplier to us, and therefore to you :)

A: Yes! Snip free just above the grow medium and eat the lot!

A: Coco Coir is a recycled waste product from the coconut industry. It is ideal for growing small seedlings and more mould-resistant than soil.

A: Yes. We recommend eating each time you snip free. You can also harvest a whole tray at once and store them for up to a week in a sealed tupperware in the fridge.

Happy growers

Don’t fancy going outside to grow your own yummy goodies? No problem! I have the perfect solution...microgreens...I love microgreens because they germinate and grow quickly and can sit on your windowsill or kitchen worktop meaning they are easily accessible so you can just chop away at them with your scissors and add them to your dinner 😋 .


Microgreens what’s not to love? Quick and easy to grow and highly nutritious...The whole kit is really easy to use with clear step by step instructions and pre measured coir and seed packs...I would happily purchase to get loved ones growing at home 💚 .


Stunning microgreen kit from @sowfreshofficial. I am absolutely thrilled with the quality of this kit, the tubs are recycled plastic and dishwasher safe, it isn’t grown in soil but coir which is a byproduct of coconuts, this alone makes for excellent composting material once your microgreens have grown 🌱 ...I adore the wooden box design.


Micropinks!!!...I am officially in love with microgreens (pinks)...It amazes me that something so small and beautiful can pack such a nutritious punch!


I am particularly impressed with this company and its continuing prompt support . They have many more advanced kits for those wanting to go further with Microgreen growing. If you're new to Microgreens, I highly recommend this product and hope they continue to do well.


I really like the quality of the box and black tubs, how the amount of seeds and coir is measured out makes things very easy and the instructions are very clear. The kit is nice and compact too to fit on windowsills.


I purchased the Chomper, (Excellent Quality) and continue to have great success with all seeds. Richard was extremely helpful, pointing me in the right direction. I am certainly going to be buying from this company for a long time to come. Thank you for getting me started on micro greens.
