Herb-anite

Just add dirt! Cultivate your green thumb with this kit that has all the seeds and instructions you need to grow fresh and tasty herbs in a sunny window year-round. Start seedlings in your choice of recycled container (any size or material will do), and with a little nurturing, nature will reward you with a scrumptious assortment of homegrown herbs. This kit includes seeds for ten fragrant herbs, including dill, basil, mint, sage, marjoram, oregano, thyme, arugula, flat, & curly parsley. (Approximately 100 seeds for each herb are included.) For fledgling gardeners, instruction cards are included for each herb to help develop your knowledge of planting, care and harvesting practices. This kit also comes with pre-labeled, wooden garden markers for each herb. Assembled and printed in Poughkeepsie, NY by disabled adults at a nonprofit workshop.

The cardboard insert is made of a minimum 60% post-consumer recycled corrugated, and the cards are printed on FSC-certified, 100% recycled paper.

    Comments about THE PLANT! HERB SEED KIT:

    Most of the seeds did not grow unfortunately. One of the plants that grew the best, the basil, is actually lemon basil, not regular basil--completly different plant/flavor profile with lemon basil. Still figuring out what to do with it....

    Comments about THE PLANT! HERB SEED KIT:

    I just bought this for my father for father's day. We have yet to plant any herbs but already I am impressed. It came in a cute little box with everything neatly labeled. I loved the information cards. They were so informative and provide great instructions on how to plants and care for my herbs once they are in the ground/pot. The identifying sticks are also so helpful, as we plan to plant this all together in an herb garden.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was great. I ordered it on a Thursday, immediately received my confirmation and it was at my doorstep when I returned home from work on Friday. I was super impressed.

        Comments about THE PLANT! HERB SEED KIT:

        I got this kit along with Uncommon Goods' Modular Ceramic Planters for my boyfriend's apartment. It's a small kitchen, but my boyfriend is so pleased he can grow something in his small indoor space! The dill shot up almost immediately, while the others take a little more time. It was very easy to set up the herb garden, so this is perfect for someone starting out who wants fresh herbs in their kitchen!

            I bought this for a friend who likes to grow herbs on her back porch. She was excited that she could grow them inside year-round as well since it gets so cold here in the winter.

              Do you know someone who loves to garden, but has limited space? Or, maybe you've always wanted to get growing, but didn't know where to start? You provide dirt, water, and a planting container, and this kit takes care of everything else - seeds, instructions, and markers. Does Plant! Herb Seed Kit have your green thumbs up?

              Sorry, don't think this warrants a price of $18.00.

              Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

              Thanks for the feedback, Christine! These kits are printed and assembled as part of a job creation program for disabled adults at a non-profit workshop. The price not only factors in the cost of materials, but also ensures that the people who make these kits are given a fair wage.

              For 2.00 you can buy herbs already to plant.

              Might be worth the price if the seeds were hard to find heirloom varieties

              Personally, I think the price is right. I have seen similar kits for twice this amount just because the herbs were given a theme, e.g., Italian. As a NY apt dweller, this would be perfect for me and I appreciate the earlier comment about stocking stuffers - great idea!

              I think this is a great way to get someone new to gardening started. Heck, I'd even buy one for me with all those different herbs! And I love that it's putting disabled adults to work, I work in a field that works with groups like that and it means to much to the people to know that they're still needed and can be a functioning part of society.

              I really love that everything is one place and reusable in this item. I love watching herbs grow and picking them for my meals. It's definitely something I'd buy for a friend too.

              Good for a gift or stocking stuffer, but wouldn't buy for myself - would just get the seeds, etc.
