The varieties in this custom mix will all be the perfect size at the same time. Mild Mix microgreens can be grown indoors at any time of year and are a nutrient-packed way to get your "green fix" in winter. Move containers as needed for best light exposure and temperature (65°–75°F). Microgreens are ready to harvest in about 5 to 10 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons (first leaves), or when the first true leaves (second set of leaves) have begun to form, depending on preference.

Mix includes: 20% Bull's Blood beet, 20% Rad Acre cabbage, 20% kohlrabi, 20% Pac Choi cabbage, 20% Lucullus swiss chard

$5.59 24 grams (~4,030 seeds)

Botanical Name: Beta and Brassica assorted species

Days to Maturity: 5–10 days

Family: SWISS CHARD, BEET: Amaranthaceae CABBAGE, KOHLRABI, PAK CHOI: Brassicaceae

Native: Africa, Europe, Asia

Hardiness: Annuals and biennials

Variety Information: The varieties in this mix are meant to be harvested at 1"–2" tall for use as crisp, tender, lively flavored, raw greens. The seedlings are varying shades of green and red.

When to Sow Outside: Not recommended. Microgreens are fragile, and outside soil makes them difficult to clean.

When to Start Inside: RECOMMENDED. Sow indoors any time of year. For a continual crop, sow every 7 to 14 days.

Days to Emerge: 2–5 days

Seed Depth: ⅛"–¼"

Seed Spacing: ¼"–½"

Thinning: Not required

Harvesting: When seedlings emerge, the first pair of leaves to show are the cotyledons, which can look very different from the leaves that follow, called "true" leaves. Microgreens are ready to harvest when they have cotyledons, or when the first true leaves have begun to form, depending on preference. Cool growing temperatures may slow the expected amount of days to maturity. Using scissors, cut microgreens just above the soil line when you are ready to use them.

Tried these for the first time

I've been growing microgreens in my home for a year using biofelt for the medium and pH balanced water. This is the first time I've tried such a small pack and the first time growing Botanical Interests microgreens seeds. I followed my usual procedure. I covered them for the first five days with another tray, spraying them twice a day with pH balanced water. After the first two and half days, I flipped the top tray over to add a bit of resistence that supposedly makes the greens stronger. I harvested after 12 days. The result was absolutely beautiful microgreens. The package says you will get five 10-20 trays. I got one and a half--and even then I threw in a few additional seeds that I have. I think the five trays referenced mean that you space them 1/4" x 1/2" apart and let them grow a bit bigger. I like them at the cotyledon and early first leave stage due to the higher nutrient value. This requires more dense sewing if you want to get any quantity from your tray. Anyway they tasted great, and I wish they sold them in larger quantities to save on packaging waste and presumably cut the cost a bit for those who are serious about their microgreens :) .

After pricing microgreens at the grocery I decided to grow them for myself and I am hooked. In the comfort of my house plus a grow light I am harvesting crop after crop of all kinds of greens and I love these greens from Botanical along with others that I grow. I am using Buckwheat greens too as they develop amazingly fast and are great in salads on tacos etc. This mild mix is also very delicious. Can't go wrong.
