HOW LONG WILL MICROGREENS LAST?

To ensure your microgreens live up to their three week span, it is recommended to place them on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, or in the produce drawer. Be sure to keep them away from the cool air vent where the temperatures tend to fluctuate. Following this, your microgreens can last up to three weeks, without losing their quality.

CAN MICROGREENS BE GROWN OUTSIDE?

Microgreens are a little delicate and like all young seedlings, they are better protected from the harsh world outside. The heat, sun, and wind can dry them out and their tender leaves are an easy target for pests to munch on. Fortunately, most microgreens do very well indoors as they like room temperatures (70°F to 80°F) and the partially filtered light that comes through a window. The best place to grow your microgreens is an indoor windowsill if you’ve got one. 
If you are going to grow them outside there are a couple steps you should follow. First, make sure it’s not too cold when you are starting, as the seed will have trouble sprouting below 65 °F. Second, avoid harsh environments by setting up in a partially shaded area that is protected from the wind. Finally, if you see flies, caterpillers, or bugs, give them a thorough rise before eating (we don’t recommend using pesticides).

DOES USING ORGANIC MICROGREEN SEEDS MATTER?

While Organic certification is far from perfect usually it’s the most environmentally friendly and least chemically instenvie option. When growing microgreens, using organic seeds is particularly important. Compared to growing “adult” plants, where you get a good harvest from just a couple seeds, growing microgreens requires hundreds of seeds that are very close to the edible part. Because you’re eating the plants so soon after they’ve sprouted, it’s inevitable that a seed will get mixed up in your harvest. We feel better knowing that when this happens that the seed was produced organically.  Here at D&W's Microgreens, we only source the highest quality non-GMO organic seeds and grow them organically from start to finish.
