Learn More About Sprouts And Microgreens

Sprouting and Microgreens are some of the easiest ways to grow plants. Sprouts are the earliest stage of growth following seed germination. Typically you can eat sprouts in a matter of 3-10 days making it a great option for snacks or enhancing your regular meals.

Microgreens take a few days longer being ready for harvest in 7-21 days. They are the next stage of growth as the seedling develops its cotyledons which are full of important nutrients.

We are always striving to offer you the best selection of seed for these two growing purposes as they are not only easy to grow, but offer superior nutritious benefits unmatched by most mature plants.

A special subcategory of microgreens is Wheatgrass. For the past few years there has been a bit of a craze over including greens in your smoothies and drinks. This is no fad, it is an effective way to get your daily servings of leafy greens in.

But did you know Wheatgrass is the source of the most effective green juices. It is linked to many health benefits both for preventative and healing purposes. If you struggle with digestive issues I would recommend researching the benefits of wheatgrass to learn how it could help you enjoy your life more fully.

I loved your article. It was very nice. It is always interesting to learn about the language of flowers. This is a wonderful advertisement for a gift that can be given to friends and nonromantic relationships. Perfect for “Galentine’s Day” and “Palentine’s Day.” Thank you.


I learned a lot from this article! We give our cat wheatgrass but never knew how good it was for them! I just bought some seeds to grow our own so our cat can have it all the time.
