Johnsons Adds Cress and Mustard to the Microgreens Range for 2023
The ever popular Microgreens range from Johnsons Seeds has two new additions for next season - Cress and Mustard. Both with an RRP of £2.65, they provide a traditional taste, perfect for salads and sandwiches. The Microgreens seed collection now consists of 18 varieties, ranging from established herbs and vegetables like Coriander and Beetroot, to more unusual choices such as Mizuna and Spinach Komatsuna. All of which can be grown for baby ‘micro’ leaves, all year round on a kitchen windowsill.
Whether it’s adding a bit of colour to a simple sandwich or an extra ‘flavour punch’ to main meals, anyone can grow these nutritious baby leaves, whatever size of garden space. Some varieties are ready to harvest in as little as two weeks, making it perfect for those gardeners wanting a quick and easy way to add some goodness to their diet.
Helen Clayton, Brand Manager for Johnsons said “Our range of seeds for microgreens continues to be a big hit with customers and consumers alike. Even after the exceptional growth we saw during the pandemic, sales of the range have continued to increase this season, by over 20% compared to 2021. For those who enjoyed growing from seed for the first time during lockdown and don’t have the time to spend growing vegetables in the conventional way, microgreens have proved an ideal choice.”
Also available as part of the range is the Microgreens Growing Kit (RRP £4.99) - a high quality reusable growing tray which includes packets of Basil, Coriander and Rocket microgreens seeds. Once ready, the Johnsons compact Micro Snips (RRP £3.99), with spring action handles, are an easy way to harvest your crops. The Microgreens Kitchen Seed Sprouter has an RRP £11.99 and is a convenient and economical way to produce continuous crops of fresh seed sprouts such as alfalfa and mung beans, as well as the baby leaves of microgreens.
