One of the major trends that has spread in urban areas over the last few years is urban gardening. Previously unused areas of inner cities are being cultivated by leisure gardeners, allotment garden clubs are booming, and every inch of balconies and terraces is being used for flower beds and window boxes. The longing for more nature meets the desire to add home-grown food to the menu. With the new Micro Garden from HAILO, the first built-in system of its kind, this desire can be realized even in the smallest of spaces: In addition to the urban gardening movement, the complete set for the miniature garden in the drawer also picks up on another trend of the times: Microgreens.
Microgreens for healthy diet
Microgreens are the healthy and nutrient-rich seedlings of vegetable and herb plants. The special cultivation method makes it possible for the plants to be harvested and eaten fresh after just a few days. Thanks to their diverse flavors, they are the perfect addition to soups, sandwiches or salads. They are not only tasty, but also provide the body with important vitamins. This makes them the perfect way to combine health awareness, culinary delights and the joy of being green at home.
Fresh vitamins simply conjured from the drawer
The HAILO Micro Garden makes growing microgreens as clean and space-saving as possible. The mini garden is neatly tucked away in the drawer and can be operated with little effort thanks to app control and automated lighting and ventilation. A light module with a special plant LED in the lid ensures ideal lighting conditions, which are further optimized with the automatic day-night cycle. To add variety to the menu, two different plant programs can run simultaneously. Four removable bowls ensure that users are always supplied with the microgreens of their choice. Controlled smartly via an app, the automatic garden also works "offline" in the standard program. The built-in system fits in drawers with a width of 60 cm – and does not require any planting soil at all. The microgreens grow cleanly and hygienically thanks to seed pads that HAILO offers together with a start-up company – in many different flavors, individually or as a subscription system.
