You can choose any tray you want: plastic, clay or wooden. For red clover microgreens growing we will use soil and our signature tray. The ground layer in a tray should be about 3-4 centimeters. Sprinkle the soil.

Scatter red clover seeds thickly over the moist soil. Seeds should beautifully cover the ground, but not be one on top of another. Water them again with sprayer. Watering is needed every day. The earth should be neither dry nor too wet.

On the 7th to 12th day of cultivation, fresh red clover microgreens can already be enjoyed. We suggest you taste them every day and decide when the taste is the best for you. It is recommended to use kitchen scissors for cutting. Cut over the ground. You can cut them as much as you need for one day or cut them all and keep in the refrigerator like any other salad in a plastic bag or container.

As you can see, growing red clover microgreens is really simple. Of course, our microgreens growing shelves with special LED lights help in this process but I have no doubts that in a warm season you can do it only with sunlight. But if it is winter now and you want to grow fresh microgreens – grab our stylish shelf and start your sprouting adventure. Do not forget organic seeds and you’re ready to go.
