Interested in growing microgreens, but not sure what you need to get started? In this guide, I’ll talk about growing trays, seeds, soil, and a basic overview of how microgreens grow. We’ll cover some of the problems you’ll run into as well.

I used to grow and sell microgreens commercially to high-end restaurants in my city, so these tips should help you out whether you’re growing for home or wanting to make a little business out of it!
