Great little book When I decided to look into growing microgreens, I checked out the 3 available books from our library. Of the 3, the smallest book, Microgreen Garden was the most comprehensive and to me the most usable of them all. It is the one I chose to purchase to have at home for my own reference. It is well laid out with special instructions for peas, sunflowers and wheat grass in addition to helpful charts and a list of recommended microgreens. The notes on different plants are very useful and have contributed to my success in growing greens.

Finally! I have searched high and low for informative instruction on how to grow microgreens at home. This book is the most consise I have found so far. Mr. Braunstein takes a newbie (like me) from the very beginning with explanations of what and how right through to the more advanced techniques and necessary information like preventing mold and bacteria issues. I highly recommend this book for the beginner equally as well as the more experienced grower….. detailed explanations, step by step instructions and loads of pictures for the visual learners….. I finally found what I need to help me succeed!

Grow your own Microgreens I became interested in microgreens after enjoying some at a restaurant but being told I would not be able to purchase any for myself, as the local growers are busy supplying the restaurants and provide very little to farmers’ markets or groceries. I decided to research how to grow my own. Mr. Braunstein’s web site and book have been very helpful in getting me started in this venture. I have given it 4 stars as I have seeds ordered but have not gone through all the steps he outlines. I like the book so far, I’m only about 1/2 way through it. I will update my review after I have (hopefully) success with the planting method he details. The information seems well organized although with perhaps a few duplicated steps between container vs. tray gardening. But I can see why he wrote it this way, because some people would just skip the chapter containing the method they did not want to try. All in all he saves you money by explaining what works so that you don’t waste your time and…
