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 Borage microgreens.

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.
