This is a collaborative post in partnership with Silly Greens.
Welcome to a brilliant new giveaway!
I’ve teamed up with the lovely people at Silly Greens to bring you a fantastic grow your own prize: a year’s supply of micro greens by post worth £130. This is a super-simple way to grow fresh greens at home, and perfect for adding flavour and nutrients to your cooking.
Read on to find out more and enter the giveaway.
What are micro greens?
Micro greens are seedlings of herbs and vegetables. Instead of allowing the plant to reach full size before harvesting, micro greens are grown for less time and harvested when they’re still seedlings.
Micro greens may be small, but they pack a punch. They’re rich in nutrients, and full of intense flavour. And because they take a matter of days to grow, you can quickly have a supply of lovely fresh greens to add flavour and texture to your cooking.
Micro greens are perfect for growing on a windowsill, so you don’t even need a garden to grow your own. Growing small batches regularly is a great way to limit waste too.
Micro greens by post from Silly Greens
Silly Greens letterbox seed packs take all the effort out of growing micro greens. They’re a great option if you’re not keen on growing your own, or simply don’t have time to stay on top of regular seed sowing.
Each box contains three different greens (you can see the full range here). The seeds are sown thickly onto plant-based soil-free mats, and are starting to grow by the time the box pops through your door. All you have to do is remove the lid, let the plants grow for a few days, then use them in your cooking. The box itself is recyclable, and doubles up as the growing tray.
You can choose to receive a Silly Greens box every week, every fortnight, every four weeks, or every six weeks. The prize on offer is the fortnightly option. You can stop and start your boxes as you wish, and you only pay for boxes that are posted out.
Such a low-effort way to have access to flavour-packed greens, isn’t it? I also love the fact that Silly Greens come direct from the farm, removing a good chunk of the supply chain and it’s associated environmental impact. It’s great that you can discover crops that aren’t available from the supermarket too.
How would you use micro greens to jazz up your cooking?
