Microgreen Garden [Paperback] - Mark M. Braunstein (Author)

Microgreens—the young seedlings of herbs, vegetables, beans, seeds, and grains—contain four to six times the vitamins and phytochemicals found in mature leaves of the same plants. These great-tasting nutritional powerhouses are cropping up in gourmet restaurants, upscale grocery stores, and trendy farmers’ markets everywhere.

This comprehensive resource explains everything readers need to know to grow microgreens at home inexpensively and easily. It provides extensive instructions for selecting seeds and soil, along with guidance on proper temperature, light, and ventilation. Also covered are methods for both small and large-scale growing of microgreens, how to extend microgreen harvests, and must-read techniques for preventing contamination by bacteria and mold.

Chock-full of detailed how-to information and vibrant full-color photos, the book explores every aspect of this unique form of gardening.

Included is a helpful guide to almost 60 species of microgreens, which profiles each green according to its flavor, special handling needs, and more.
