I am so interested with your product. I live in Canada and want to know if I can order it? Or is this or the US only?

Hi Charlene! We do not use any fertilizer in our system due to the seeds only being grown for a maximum of two weeks. During this 2 week time, the seeds supply the nutrition they need without any extra inputs such as soil or fertilizer.

So in short, the seeds are packed with enough nutrition that they do not necessarily need additional sources in their first two weeks! This can surely depend on the variety of microgreen and the nutrient you are looking at, and so if you have questions about specific varieties, it would be fun to look at the literature and see what can be found to answer your question!

I already have a subscription with you, my question is how nutritious are your micro greens? I thought that plants gets their minerals from the dirt they’re plant in but when I received my package there isn’t any dirt, also can I plant them in dirt?
