Buckwheat seed needs to be soaked before planting, ideally a day ahead. After that, they grow well using the weighted blackout method.

They’re crisp, juicy, and tangy, making them a great addition to any microgreen salad or sandwich topping.

The leaves are dark green, and the stems are pink to rose. The leaves on buckwheat microgreens are larger than most microgreens, so overplanting is discouraged.

Buckwheat seed husks mostly fall off as the leaves emerge. Buckwheat microgreens should be harvested after the cotyledons develop for a more tender microgreen.

Remove any remaining buckwheat seed husks, as they are hard.

They are an excellent choice as a base for any microgreens salad or just added to salads. Because of their crisp texture, they’re also a tremendous raw topping for sandwiches or burgers.

Buckwheat seed can also be planted in garden beds as they are a great cover crop. Chop down the stalks when the buckwheat flowers emerge and leave the clippings on the garden bed.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Buckwheat Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 1 ounce

1010 Tray: 2.7 ounces

1020 Tray: 5.4 ounces

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 2.9 Tablespoons

1010 Tray: Little under 1/2 cup.

1020 Tray: Little under 1 cup.

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of XXXX.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point, if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different-size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.

Three teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon

Four Tablespoons equal 1/4 cup
