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.

On May 22, 2017, I completed treatment for breast cancer. After six months of weekly chemo sessions and six weeks of daily radiation treatments, I needed a little less drama in my life! Enter: Garden in a Can. With these four little cans situated on the window above my kitchen sink, I can sit back and watch a new cycle of life. With each sprout of sage or cilantro, I am reminded there is good growing in this world. Not just doctor visits and disgusting drugs. I am looking forward to the day when I can use these herbs in my cooking, knowing they are healthy and came from my home.

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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Garden in a Can - Set of 4:

      I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter. She folllowed the directions but only two of the four plants have sprouted, the basil and sage did not sprout at all. The basil seeds were expired but she planted them anyway. Love the idea of this gift and the cans are so cute, but she is disappointed with the results.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Garden in a Can - Set of 4:

          I bought this for my wife for Christmas. Upon opening this morning, 3 of the 4 sets of seeds had expired a year ago. The one theoretically "good" set had clearly already been exposed to moisture and were moldy and ruined. Essentially, I gifted her 4 cans of dirt. If this is what's being delivered when folks buy this one, I'd suggest removing it from the site immediately.

            I go this for my mom who loves to garden. She lives up north, so gardening isn't really possible during the winter months, so I thought this would be a great way to bring her gardening indoors for the colder weather. She was so excited about this gift-- especially the basil, which unfortunately never sprouted. The other three did though, and seem to be healthy.

            Seemed fine, except the one defective plant.

              A long time ago, I purchased something similar from another company and was so happy with it. Got lots of herbs that kept renewing themselves. This is definitely a waste of my time, as there were not enough seeds and what sprouted was very flimsy and doesn't look like it will produce a good harvest. It was a huge waste of my money
