- If you prefer your microgreens in a live growing plant tray, please take the following into account, Caution! Some microgreen varieties tend to form mold in the root area, if not properly attended to. Make sure that your planting mat is well ventilated at all times. Please note that the weight of the products offered in live growing trays include the grow mats, water, roots and packaging. This is why the usable plant weight is generally 40-50% below the declaration. All live grow tray suppliers have the same complications when it comes to mold control. See what Wikipedia has to say!

While these greens are considered “micro” they’re on the larger side compared to other varieties of microgreens. This gives them some weight and substance which can be a big plus for salads. Their mild and nutty flavor pair well with our Sweet Pea Tendrils.
Try making a salad base with some sunflower and pea shoots and top with your favorite dressing or add them to sandwiches, wraps, or tacos. You can use sunflower microgreens to add texture and flavor to any place where you’d normally use leafy greens. You can sprinkle them on top of avocado toast or even blend them into a smoothie. As a garnish just sprinkle them over soups, stews, or other cooked dishes for added flavor and dimension. Or just enjoy them on their own as a healthy, crunchy snack.
