Micro Herbs Growing Guide

What are microherbs?

Micro herbs or Micro Greens are just what they sound like, small plants. Not only are they sold as delicacies by fine food specialists at considerable costs, they are used to garnish dishes on the menu in every 5-star establishment in the country. This is because they are so tender and tasty, and the flavours are exquisite. In short, micro herbs are pure luxury.
