This easy-to-read but comprehensive hard copy printed Microgreens Booklet is a quick start guide to growing baby vegetables and herbs as fresh digestive-enzyme rich ingredients! This guide stands alone and is designed to complement the foldout Microgreens Growing Guide Chart with additional unique tips and information.

I’ve written this booklet based on 9 years of experience growing microgreens and teaching classes. It’s designed to help gardeners get started quickly with shortcuts to success and little known tips in a condensed reference guide. It’s presented in a practical Q&A style format with tables for easy reference in a simple to understand layout. After great feedback on this booklet from workshop attendees and many requests, I’m now making it available to everyone.

    Easy Guide To Growing Microgreens


    Great read this is! Loaded with everything I needed to get a bumper crop of microgreens growing. Really love the informative charts that tell you what’s easy, medium or hard to grow. The germination time of all the plants is very handy too. Thanks, Micro Gardener for showing me a simple & effective way to add a good dose of concentrated nutrients and enzymes to my daily diet.

    A well-thought-out and well-set-out guide

    I purchased the Seed Collecting Guide which has the content of a book only in a handy fold-out form. It’s incredible how much information is contained in that guide.

    Another addition to my gardening shelf is the Microgreens Growing Guide which I really want to get into right now. And instead of viewing numerous “saved” videos, I now have a quick reference guide for every seed plus the Easy Guide to Growing Microgreens. Another well-thought-out and well-set-out guide.

    These products are the most useful of their kind that I have seen. And they are such a time saver because of the way they are set out and they cover everything I think a gardener needs to know and that’s important for a novice like me. Well done Anne.
