Sunflower microgreens, the young sprouts of the sunflower plant, are grown for their health benefits, easy cultivation, and nutty flavor. With high levels of protein, essential amino acids, and antioxidants, these small plants pack a big punch nutritionally. Growing sunflower microgreens is a simple process. Because of these facts, they’ve become popular recently and are grown by novice and experienced gardeners who wish to enhance their diet with fresh, healthful greens.


Soak your sunflower microgreen seeds in water for 8-12 hours to prepare them for planting. Fill a shallow tray with seed starting mix or a soilless growing medium like coconut coir. Sprinkle the seeds evenly on top, mist, and cover to retain moisture and block out the light. Keep the growing medium moist and covered in darkness for 3-5 days. After removing from darkness, expose the microgreens to direct sunlight. Harvest within 8-14 days.


Sunflower microgreens grow quickly and in a week or two, they will be ready to harvest. Provide consistent moisture throughout the growing process. A grow light or a sunny spot provides the necessary light for healthy development. Harvest sunflower microgreens when they are 2 to 4 inches in height by cutting them just above the soil line. Clean gently and use immediately for the best flavor and nutrients.

The easy process of growing sunflower microgreens at home is perfect for those with no garden space and for those who can’t wait for the growing season to begin. It’s a rewarding way to boost your nutrition. Their quick growth cycle and impressive nutrient profile make sunflower microgreens a fun, welcome addition to any home garden or kitchen.


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!
