This is the Hamama Green Onion Kit. If you are a gardener and want to try something new, growing microgreens in a container is a really good thing. I grew one for several months in my own kitchen garden. Microgreens is another name given to the culinary microgreens that contain much smaller seeds than ordinary lettuce. Microgreens are considered deliciously tiny compared to other vegetables.
A lot of people like growing microgreens because of their flavor, but also because they do not need to be planted out in the garden as traditional plants do. Microgreens are simply sliced lengthwise and placed inside a glass of water. They will go to work growing within the water. Many people have told me about how great it is to watch little plants grow and flourish inside their pots, filling up your table and adding color to any table setting.
The best thing about growing these miniature plants in a kit is that all of the supplies you need are included. In my case, the kit included the plastic container, some baby oil, planting containers, wire, water, some soil, some moss, and a cutting board. All of the tools I needed were already in the kit.
Once you get started, the first thing you need to do is to put the pieces of moss into the water. Then plant the green onions in the water. Within a few days, the moss should have roots that are visible and the water should have turned green.
In order for your plants to grow to their full potential, it is important to remember that they require an ample amount of water. I learned this the hard way. One day I was watering my plants and suddenly one of them broke. This happened because the water had been sitting for too long and the roots were so overworked.
Soil preparation is also very important when it comes to growing your plants. Hamama Green Onions usually doesn’t like a lot of fertilizer. So you may want to use organic mulch in your soil mix. In order to prepare the mulch, mix in about a tablespoon of bone meal into the soil. This will help thicken up the soil and make it easier for your plants to absorb nutrients.
When your plants reach maturity, you will have to replant them. It is recommended that you spread out the plants about three to four feet between plants. Keep in mind that you want to spread them out so that there is plenty of sun exposure. This will help them stay healthy during the winter months as well. Just be sure to cover the soil with some clear water during the hot summer months.
After your plants begin to mature, you may want to get rid of the plant that has reached the end of its growing season. This is especially true if it is a very tall plant or if it takes up more than one square foot of space. It would be a waste to harvest it and then throw it away. Just give the plant a good watering and keep it out of the sunlight. Your green onions will continue to grow quite well with just a bit of attention and care.
There are other types of green onions that do much better in other growing conditions. These include the French and Bermuda. They also do quite well when planted in the shade. They can be harvested often, but they tend to be fatter than those that were grown in the garden.
Harvesting your own green onions is a great way to enjoy the taste and the health benefits of these versatile veggies. If you live in a location where there are not a lot of options for growing your vegetables this year, you might want to consider harvesting your own. Even if you live in a mild climate, you can enjoy the health benefits of growing your own vegetables. Just think how you can enjoy delicious green onions instead of buying them at the grocery store every week.
Make sure you research the equipment that is included in the Hamama Green Onion Kit before purchasing it. You should also be able to find replacement parts for any damaged items. The manufacturer of this kit is very prompt in answering any of your gardening questions. So you can feel secure that you will receive the answers you need to be successful in your gardening adventure.
