Days to Emerge:
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 in shallow containers. 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"–1/4" 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. Italian Amaro Blend microgreens are ready to harvest 14 to 21 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons. Cool growing temperatures may slow germination and growth. Harvest by cutting just above the soil line.
