Creating Custom Micro Greens Mixes

Micro Greens  are an ideal, year-round opportunity for market growers. The start-up costs are low, they are relatively easy to grow, and most can be harvested within 2-3 weeks.

Johnny's first listed Micro Greens in 2001.
 
If you've previously grown Micros, you may be wondering how to create your own custom Micro Greens Mix. First, start with varieties of varying colors, flavors, and textures. Once you’ve done this, we suggest you try one of these two methods:

-Mix equal or varying quantities of seed from 5-6 varieties of similar growth rates before sowing.
     

-Grow the individual components and then blend together once harvested. This allows for varieties of different growth rates to be seeded on separate days so that they will be ready for harvest at the same time.

When creating your custom mix, be sure to keep detailed records of varieties, seeding dates, and the percentages of each component used to ensure that once an interesting mix has been discovered it can
be easily recreated.
