Mustard microgreens, the young shoots of the mustard plant, have a solid reason for being planted year-round. Mustard microgreens benefits are highly concentrated, delivering a significant nutritional boost. They are cultivated in a small space and need little time to grow – perfect plants for any indoor novice or expert in the gardening realm.


Spread your mustard microgreens seeds thickly over 1/2-1 inch of moist potting mix in a well-draining shallow container. The size should be about 5 inches by 5 inches. Press the seeds in firmly. Mist with water and cover to block out the light. Put the covered container in a completely dark space for 3-4 days. Mist as needed to retain the moisture. When there are a few inches of growth or the microgreens start lifting the cover, expose them to direct light. Harvest with scissors in a week or two.


Mustard microgreens grow fast, requiring little care. Maintain the moisture of the soil from planting to harvest. Ensure there is good lighting when they sprout, either from sunlight or grow lights. Harvest micro mustard greens when they reach about 2 to 3 inches. Cut them just above the soil line. Use them immediately to take advantage of their spicy flavor and nutritional benefits.

With our mustard microgreens seeds, even inexperienced gardeners will rejoice in the freshness of their greens. These superb plants are an excellent choice for augmenting your diet with fresh vegetables all year round.


How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
