How to Grow Microgreens

How to Grow Microgreens, Natures Own Superfood by Grey Lynner and Grey Lynn Farmers market member, Fionna Hill
will be launched at boutique garden store Tully & Gardener, 139 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn, on Saturday 21st August between 10 AM and 4 PM.

No space for home-grown food? Think again.
Microgreens can be grown on your windowsill.
Here’s a book that could revolutionise your household meals, keep away those winter chills and get your green thumb working…
Fionna will do a ‘show, tell and taste’ about Microgreens – the tiny seedlings of herbs and vegetables. Larger than sprouts and smaller than ‘baby’ salad greens, they nutritionally contain higher levels of active plant compounds than mature plants or seeds and  can easily be grown in containers on a terrace or windowsill but if you’ve got a ‘quarter acre pavlova paradise’ they’re for you too.

With Microgreens, you don’t wait weeks or months for them to come to maturity; most varieties are ready in a week or two and you can grow them right through winter. Microgreens are the new big thing in growing your own food globally.
Signed books $29.99 available on the day with a complimentary pack of
‘Fionna’s Blend Microgreen Seeds’ (seeds while stocks last)   www.fionnahill.com
