Finding the Correct Seed Density for all Microgreen Trays
This premium course contains 4 video lessons, 2 seed density calculators, and 2 worksheets to help you find the correct seed density of over 40 microgreen varieties for any size tray.
You will never have to guess how much microgreen seed to add to any tray from now on!
One seed calculator presents the recommended seeding rate in grams. The other calculator presents the recommended seeding rate in either teaspoons, tablespoon, or quarter cups! This one is what everyone has been asking me to make.
Every microgreen variety in the Home Microgreens Store is represented. The quick video below shows the calculators in action.
Benefits to You
I knew when I started microgreens I had no idea how much seed to use. There was so much conflicting information on the internet, none of it made logical sense to me, it seems like all of the authors were guessing and living with the results.
I think this is true not only as a first time grower, but every time you grow a new variety, or use a different size tray.
It drove me nuts, because I knew using two teaspoons of basil seed would give me different results than using the same volume of cilantro seeds.
For those reasons, curiosity, and my logical sanity, I developed the calculators to quickly find a recommended seeding rate.
Based on Logic & Tested by Growing
I’m not going to bore you with how I came up with my idea of what makes a perfect tray of microgreens. Some of that is included in the first lesson (not enough to put you asleep), but I took a logical look at what I wanted to do, came up with a hypothesis for each microgreen variety and grew tray after tray of each microgreen variety. After each grow I tweaked the amount of seed until I was happy with the tray.
I still test each variety, it is easier now because of the 100’s of trays I grown, but I still grow several trays of a microgreen variety before I add it to the store or calculator.
No More Guessing
Whether you are growing for the first time, growing a new to you microgreen variety, or growing microgreens in a different tray size you will have the answer to how much seed to use almost instantly.

Additional Information on the Course
The course contains four video lessons with additional text.
- Why Seed Density Is Important
- Finding Your Tray Dimensions
- Microgreen Seed Calculator by Weight
- Microgreen Seed Calculator by Volume
Beside the video lessons and the two seed calculators within, there are two pdf worksheets that you can use to write down the amount of seed to use for your favorite microgreens trays.
There are also some reference papers included that discuss what parts of the microgreen contain nutrition.
Lesson one discusses why using the correct seed density is important and why throwing random amounts of seed isn’t so good.
Lesson two shows how to measure the planting area and not the total tray size for rectangular and round microgreen trays.
Lessons 3 & 4 contain the seed density calculators.
