What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are young vegetable greens and are considered to be somewhere between a sprout and a baby green.
Packed with micronutrients such as Vitamin C, E, K, carotenoids, minerals such as potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper.
Research has found that microgreens often contain significantly higher quantities of micronutrients and antioxidant phyto-chemicals than their mature counterparts.
Verdant Republic – Purplicious Grow Log
I’m really enjoying my Purplicious microgreens grow kit project so far from Verdant Republic. I will be the first to admit that I’m not the most “green fingered” when it comes to gardening and growing plants, so I was slightly apprehensive, but the microgreens have been really simple and its amazing how quickly they grow.
In about 9-21 days you can have your first fresh micronutrient rich superfoods grown cheaply and easily in the comfort of your own home.
Microgreens can be grown easily on the likes of your sunny windowsill, kitchen worktop or outdoors on a balcony, in the porch and so on.
Microgreens can also be planted indoors year round, giving you access to fresh nutrient dense superfoods.
I decided I would keep things simple to start with two varieties of microgreens, so I went with Beetroot and Red Swiss Chard.

Red Swiss Chard Microgreens
I have been using the microgreens mostly in salads, sandwiches and to boost my healthy smoothies even further. The Beetroot and Red Swiss Chard microgreens I found quite mild and delicate in taste.
