Micro-greens are indeed tiny green leafy plants often used to spice up a salad or offer extra flavor and nutrition. Traditionally (some commonly known as weeds today) and regularly used in many ethnic dishes, micro-greens are a hearty way to add nutrient dense elements to your meal.

Space Savers

  • Grown from seeds and only to about a height of two inches
  • Harvested as tiny sprouts
  • Easily thrive inside the home in pots

My Favorite Micro-Greens


  • Dandelion
  • Mustard
  • Radish
  • Mint Lavender
  • Arugula
  • Beets

Ready, Set, Plant!
