My family and close friends will be reading this review with surprised looks on their faces as they know that salad and raw veg/fruit is not something I get excited about. As I have got older I can manage to eat the odd rocket leaf and I have even stopped picking cress out of sandwiches but still do not ask me to munch into an iceberg lettuce leaf - that is not going to happen.Getting People Growing to see if I wanted to trial one of their microgreens kits. "Why not" I thought to myself, I love growing things from seeds and this sounded like it would be fun. I have not paid for this kit but my words and opinions are as ever my own.
Best of all you get enough growing medium for more than one sowing and you can buy refills. You can also subscribe so that you know you will not run out.
Am I now a convert to fancy-pants cress? (well that's that I have decided to call it) Yes I am. I am still not going to dive into the world of raw tomatoes and cucumber, but these microgreens work for the level of fussy eater that I am, which of course makes me think that if you get children growing these kits that it might also work on them too. They do make a kit especially for children.
Prices are at the time of writing £16.99 for the starter kit, 6.50 for refills and then there are seeds and growing medium too that you can buy separately.
I love this kit, it is well thought out and does what it says it does. This would make a wonderful Christmas present I am sure.
