What are microgreens? – Sow Fresh

What are microgreens?

Microgreens are the tender seedlings of herbs and vegetables, harvested at an early stage, when the plant grows its first set of true leaves.

They are small, but these little greens contain high levels of vitamins, minerals and health-supporting components. Just think how concentrated the nutrients are at this stage, before the crop takes on loads of water whilst growing into the adult size. 

Fast to grow (some in as little as 10 days!) super-nutritious, and they provide an easy way to grow food in your kitchen which can be cut straight onto your plate. They are packed with flavour, offer both visual and textural enhancement. They come in a variety of strong flavours, bright colours and crunchy tastes.

We have a large array of seeds specially selected for optimal germination and speedy growth:


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.
