What are Microleaves?
Microleaves are the youthful sprouts of any veg
In the words of Martyn Cox of The Guardian
If you thought that salad leaves in pots or containers were at the forefront of gardening fashion, think again. “Micro leaves” (also known as micro greens, living greens and micro herbs) are the veg du jour, largely thanks to their popularity among leading chefs. Gordon Ramsay is a fan of their intense taste, while Raymond Blanc has a polytunnel full of them in the gardens at his Oxfordshire restaurant, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.
Micro leaves are essentially vege-table seedlings raised in a growing medium and picked between six and 21 days old (not to be confused with beansprouts, which are simply sprouted seeds that are eaten around two to five days old). They are easy to grow, too: all you need is a warm room and a light windowsill.
