Micro-greens are quick to grow, and you will get a thick bunch of hair you can then eat in salads or sandwiches.


  • An empty egg carton
  • Empty egg shells
  • Potting mix
  • Paint
  • Felt-tip pen
  • Micro-green seeds (I have used a mixture, or you could use cress seeds)


  • Paint your egg carton and add decorations if you want.
  • Draw faces on the egg shells using a felt-tip marker.
  • Fill the shells to almost the top with potting mix (I used a teaspoon to fill the shells).
  • Gently sprinkle a small amount of seeds and then put a very thin layer of potting mix to just cover.
  • Water the soil with a small amount of water.
  • Place the shells into the egg carton - and watch for the hair to grow in a few days.
