When you plant microgreens, it is important that you get rid of any weeds and make sure that your soil is ready to go. You should make sure that your soil is well rotted before planting any type of vegetable, let alone microgreens. The best time to plant microgreens is late winter through early spring. It is not unusual for the plants to start appearing in the fall and keep growing until the early part of the spring. You will have to plan carefully when planting so that you plant the right kind of microgreens in the right place. The timing has to be just right if you want your plants to grow as fast as possible.
There are two ways to plant your microgreens so that you get the best results. The first way is to use a pot so that the plants are contained to just one area. This should be a tightly packed mass of microgreens growing on one stem. The roots will have plenty of room to grow and spread out when the plant starts growing.
The second way to plant your microgreens in the fall is to make a bed of loosely packed dry leaves in a circle around the perimeter of your main growing area. This should be planted a little deeper than you planted your microgreens because microgreens tend to grow larger than you’d like them to. The microgreens will settle to the bottom and expand as they spread out. You can fill the circle with soil and turn it into a permanent bed once your plants have started to take root.
Once you have determined where you will be planting your microgreens, you’ll need to find pots that will fit. Most people choose 2″ pots because they feel that these pots will be more friendly to the plants than other sizes. The pots that you choose will determine how fast the plants grow.
The size of the pots that you choose will also affect the growth rate of your plants. If you are going to have fast growing plants, you should choose bigger pots. On the other hand, slow growing plants should be put in smaller pots. This allows the plants more room to grow and will reduce the amount of time that the plants take to mature.
Your choice of pots for your microgreens comes down to a few things. You need a container that is going to allow the plants to get the proper amount of light and oxygen that they need to grow at a high rate. The microgreens come in all different shapes and sizes so there’s one for just about every pot that you could imagine. Most plants prefer pots with dark colors but some do well in light colored pots. Your plant’s roots will grow in the soil and through the drainage holes in the bottom of the container.
Some of the microgreens that are available now have built-in drainage holes that make the process of planting and removing your plants much easier. This can be an important feature if you are considering growing plants such as onions in these containers. Because microgreens grow very well in containers, you can also place a trellis on top of them if you want to cover your garden. The microgreens are an exotic group of plants that are easy to care for and grow in small containers.
