4-7 days

Seed Depth:
1/8"

Seed Spacing:
1/4"-1/2"

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 10 to 14 days.

Special Sowing instructions: Use a shallow container with 1"–2" of potting soil. Sow seeds in a single layer, and cover with 1/8" of soil.

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. Kale microgreens are ready to harvest 7 to 14 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons. Slow growers or cool growing temperatures may require more time. Harvest by cutting just above the soil line.
