Microherbs seeds selection
Microherbs, also known as micro herbs, are tiny versions of traditional herbs that are harvested at an early stage of growth. These micro versions of herbs like basil, parsley, dill, sage, lemon-balm, borage or carrot are prized for their intense flavor, and delicate appearance. Their taste is similar but more delicate than taste of their mature couterparts.
They are often used as garnishes, flavor enhancers, and decorative elements in culinary dishes.
Don't let their small size fool you - growing these petite greens may require more effort than regular-sized ones but their exceptional flavors are worth it.
