Garden in a Can - Set of 4

Grow your own greenery with this all-in-one herb kit.

$24.00

Can Do Attitude

Perfect for the urban farmers or green thumbs who are short on space, this all-in-one set contains everything you need to grow your own organic herbs right at home. Looking for a fast and fool-proof medium for growing herbs, designers Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez teamed up with scientists from UC Berkeley. Through their research, they discovered biochar, a composite of the charred remnants of organic agricultural waste that was first utilized by Amazonian tribes centuries ago. The ancient medium has the ability to retain moisture to prevent over-watering issues, it also aerates the soil for quick root growth and fosters microbial activity in the soil, maximizing nutrient absorption.

To use, simply pop open the recycled can, add water, and place it in a sunny spot. Within a few weeks your homegrown herbs will be ready to harvest and enjoy in your favorite dishes.

    My class is using the herb garden as a precursor to the vegetable garden that we are building. They are excited about taking care of the herbs every day. They love taking them home and "plant sitting" on long breaks.

      I bought this set so my grandson and I could do a little winter gardening. Despite not having a direct sunlight setup, all four herbs have sprouted and are doing very well. He is astounded that things will grow in cans, and has suggested several other applications -- like growing a dinosaur (he's 4)!

      I plan to purchase him his own set, and one for my black-thumbed youngest daughter -- I think these will even grow for her.

          Good present - Unusual, not to expensive, useful does not add "stuff" to peoples lives.
          Would not buy for myself because it's easy enough to grow herbs but its nice packaging to give to others. Only downside is you can't tell how it will turn out because it takes a while to grow from seeds. But people appeared to like receiving it and looked forward to setting up with kids.

              The listing/picture had 4 different herbs but wound up receiving 2 basil and 2 cilantro. Didn't realize this until the person I bought it for was opening it on Christmas Day. It was very disappointing.

                  I am far from a green thumb. I dream of having my own herb garden, but I know I lack the skill. However, I do also love a good fresh herb while I'm cooking. It truly makes a big difference. These little cans were so easy to get started. Open, plant, water, wait. Within a week, I've got fresh basil and cilantro right on my kitchen windowsill, and I put forth the least amount of effort possible! Plus the upkeep is nothing but adding a little more water! This was a perfect gift for me, someone who enjoys cooking, but is truly awful at planting and keeping plants thriving.

                    I was a bit disappointed. I guess I didn't look close enough, but when it said set of 4, I thought four herbs, not 2 of basil and 2 of cilantro. I love them, but was sad it was just two varieties.
