ALL YEAR ROUND GREENS STRAIGHT FROM YOUR WINDOWSILL
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add vibrant colour and taste to dishes and don’t want to be restricted by traditional harvesting methods, try growing Microgreens from Johnsons Seeds.
Microgreens are virtually 'instant' vegetables that can be grown, come rain or shine, all year round on a windowsill and in as little as two weeks. The tiny plants have the essence of the mature plants without the more extensive care and maintenance required to grow them. "Our customers really love the fresh intensity of these easy to grow, nutrient-rich micro-leaves. And it’s not just the conventional flavours they are choosing – our Microgreens Beetroot variety is the top seller in the range", says Johnsons Brand Manager Helen Clayton.
Continued to be loved by top chefs and best described as ultra-baby leaf vegetables, these seedlings add a fresh and punchy flavour 'bombshell' to just about any dish from sandwiches to steaks and stir-fries to soups. They can also be used as a simple and tasty garnish to make any meal special.
Johnsons Microgreens is available in two formats. The high quality kit which includes a reusable growing tray and three packets of seeds has a recommended retail price of just £4.99 and is perfect to get home chefs started. In addition there is a mini-range of eight Microgreen varieties such as chard, basil and rocket, available to buy separately with RRPs of £2.09 to £3.19.
