*What are microgreens?
Microgreens are the sprouted seeds of various leafy greens. The seeds are grown in small, shallow containers, like Harraz microgreens kit, which makes them easier to grow and harvest.
In addition to parsley microgreens, you can sprout beets, radishes, celery, basil, and dill.
Microgreen production isn’t expensive or time-consuming, it can be grown on a large-scale or at home and it is very simple.
Parsley is known to be grown in outdoor gardens, but with the introduction of microgreens, you can easily cultivate them at home. The benefits include having your crop ready for harvest much quicker and still get a tasty and a highly nutritious herb!
Parsley microgreens are small, leafy, tasty edible plants. They are popular in many households as they are frequently used in several dishes and salads. They are versatile and give flavor and taste to so many dishes, especially Italian food and is also a great garnish. You can enjoy parsley as an add-on or as a base in salads, sandwiches, pesto, on grilled meat and vegetables.
Flat leaf parsley is one of the easiest microgreen herbs to grow, although the germination and growth rate are slow relative to most microgreens.
Parsley will germinate 7- to 15 days after sowing. However, some parsley seeds tend to delay germination; because of this, harvest shouldn’t occur until 30-days to allow all of the seeds to grow.
– If you use a lot of parsley microgreens, sow multiple trays 15 days apart so you can have a continuous supply.
– Parsley microgreens are grown from the same seeds you will use when planting the full-grown herb. The difference lies in how you plant them.
– For microgreens, the density level is higher, and you treat them differently during the germination process. Outdoor gardening is often seasonal, but when you grow microgreens, you don’t have to worry about this as they can be grown indoors all year round!

Empty the growing media into the planting container until you fill most of the black part. (Preferably a mixture of cocopeat and vermiculite with a ratio of 90:10) then use the sprayer to make it very wet.
Soak 1 pack of seeds for several hours (2-8 hours), then clean them from the soaking water and use a spoon to distribute evenly on the growing media.
Spread the seeds to cover most of the growing media, leaving 1 cm from the edges of the container, for aeration, watering and also to easily cut your greens later.
Try to make very small spaces (0.5 mm) between the seeds with a toothpick (for aeration).
Spray the box with water until everything is very wet, including the inside of the cover, to create a humid environment.
Put the container in a very dark area for at least 48 hours
After 48 hours, remove the cover to let the oxygen in and check the length of your greens then spray with water if needed.
When the seeds complete germination and sprout, put the cover upside down on top of the tiny plants for an additional 24 hours. To keep the cover secure, put a small weight on top of the cover.
It is preferable to leave them in the dark until the sprouts push the cover upwards as they grow. The sprouts will stretch upward in search of the sun or the light, this strengthens them and makes them more nutritious and easier to harvest when they are longer than the edge of the container.
Remove the cover and take into consideration that the container must be placed in a bright place until its color turns green through the process of photosynthesis.
Keep an eye on the water, always make sure the media is completely wet, but not submerged in water.
Start harvesting when your leaves are tall and green enough (about the length of your small finger or they are 5-10 cm high)
Use thin scissors to cut your needed amount of greens, harvest right above the growing medium and add to your delicious meals. It is possible to harvest daily until the microgreens run out and the process is repeated again after cleaning the box.
Follow up on the water and make sure that the soil does not dry out before the buds appear and make sure that it is dark for at least 48 hours.
After the appearance of sprouts and germination, irrigation is reduced to only keeping the soil wet and not submerged.
In some cases, the beginnings of rot may appear at the stem in the sprouts, which means that the sprouts need more aeration and the seeds were put very close together. The solution is very easy, oxygen water is bought from the pharmacy and diluted in the spray water, and once sprayed, it will disappear and the oxygen will be vaporized, and it becomes plain water. This white fungus is harmless and is easily treated.
On some winter days, the growth of greens may be a little slow, as well as the germination, so the seeds can be left in a place, for example, 72 hours instead of 48 hours.
