      Comments about GROW YOUR OWN MARINARA KIT:

      I purchased this for valentines day for my boyfriend, who loves to cook. He loved the the gift, but after I had to explain it to him. The one down side to this gift is that it does not say anywhere on the packaging " make your owner marinara kit", so it does just look like a bunch of seeds for planting. I think this should have at least somewhere on the packaging, and it would make a little more sense. Finally, I think another nice touch would be a recipe included for the marinara sauce. Overall, happy with the gift.

            It is advertised so well on the website as "Make Your Own Marinara Kit" but when you receive the product there is no mention of Marinara. So, given as a gift, you have to be there in person to explain to the receiver the purpose of the products. They will not get the "make your own marinara " part on their own,. Cool idea. I just wish the packaging was more clear for gift giving purposes.

                  Probably a good product but delivery failed.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I ordered this as a wedding gift to be delivered to the couple since I was unable to attend the wedding. Nowhere in the information did it say that a signature would be required upon delivery. Uncommon Goods was unable to get a signature, so the couple never got a gift from me. As one half of the couple was my boss, this was very embarrassing for me.

                  Probably a great gift, but do not mail it.

                        I got this as a gift so not sure how it will turn out but thought it was a great idea. Only downside is no where on the actual package does it say that the kit is for making marinara-I didn't see instructions for making the sauce??

                              My husband fancies himself both a chef and a gardener, but in reality we don't have too much time available to be either. This set was a perfect gift for his birthday, allowing him to grow his own ingredients for his beloved marinara.

                              Being able to grow inside is a bonus since we live in an area populated with deer. The cute little bags sit well to grow your mini garden in, and when the plants get big enough to need a new home, it should be very easy to cut - allowing you to move the plants without much damage.

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              Delivery was very prompt, but sadly my postal person jammed the box into my mailbox (which it would not have fit had the box not gotten wet from rain). Fortunately the actual product was still intact and able to move around in the box to accommodate the sides of the box being squished in. The fact that they were pouches vs a more solid box item probably saved my gift.

                                I gave this to an avid gardener for Christmas and she was absolutely thrilled. She was really excited that you could grow the plants in the packages and transfer them later if you wanted. She couldn't wait to get home to start growing her sauce.
