The Power of Power Greens
Power Greens, sometimes called Microgreens, are simply vegetables or herbs that are grown in a container and are harvested when plants are small and immature. In this tender young stage, nutrients are concentrated, textures are delicate, and you can enjoy the essence of each flavor as an accent to your favorite dish.
Power Greens may be tiny, but they’ve become a huge trend found everywhere from corner bistros to the grocery store. This micro green is highly coveted because it’s tasty, nutritious and beautiful.
LGarden’s NEW Power Greens are easy to grow, and in just 2-3 weeks, will be ready to add a nutrient boost and delicious flavors to salads, stir fries, smoothies and other savory dishes. Our Power Green varieties are embedded in five rows within a biodegradable mat. Using our seed mat eliminates the need to manipulate individual seeds during planting. Simply cut your seed mat to fit your LGarden, lay it over the prepared soil within the LGarden, cover it lightly with more soil, then water and watch your seedlings grow.
The best time to harvest these Power Greens is when they’ve developed their first set of true leaves, which is generally about 10-14 days after planting. To harvest, simply snip the plant just above soil level.
LGarden’s Power Greens are quick to plant and sure to succeed – no gardening experience needed. Your mat includes 1 row each of Red Cabbage, Chinese Cabbage, Fast Flowering and edible Brassica, Mizuna and Siberian Kale (the equivalent of 3 seed packets of each variety). Then, just choose your harvest – Microgreens after 2-3 weeks when leaves overlap, Baby Leaf greens after 3-6 weeks or Mature Plants after 7+ weeks (plants can be either harvested or transplanted at this time). These varieties are also cold tolerant, excellent for extending the season in early Spring or Fall.
These Seed Mats can be cut to fill your LGarden or LGarden Balcony completely, or plant your LGarden multiple times for multiple harvests.
