Growing Sunflower Microgreens with Grassroots Farms:

  1. Preparation Prodigy: For optimal germination, soak your sunflower seeds in water for about 8-12 hours before planting. This step helps kickstart the germination process and promotes more consistent and rapid growth.
  2. Germination Glory: After soaking, evenly spread the seeds across moistened Grassroots Farms Peat Pucks and gently press them into the medium. Cover your tray to create a humid environment that fosters germination, and ensure consistent moisture levels and ample light exposure.
  3. Nurturing Nuggets: Monitor moisture levels closely to prevent overwatering or fungal issues. Provide proper airflow around the microgreens to prevent mold or damping-off, and avoid overcrowding of seeds.
  4. Culinary Creativity: Let your culinary creativity shine with the versatile flavor and texture of sunflower microgreens! Add them to salads, sandwiches, smoothies, or use them as a garnish for soups and entrees.

Unique Aspects of Sunflower Microgreens:

  • Roots: Sunflower microgreens develop fine root hairs that anchor them in the growing medium. While these roots are not typically consumed, they play a crucial role in absorbing water and nutrients for healthy growth.
