Get Fresh

When chefs say fresh herbs make all the difference, they speak the truth. But where does that leave those of us with no garden, no time, and no green thumb? Harvest all that flavor with very little work with Sarah Burrows and Nick Behr's tinted, vintage-inspired jars. They're pure charm on the outside, but inside use a passive hydroponic system that brings nutrients up to the plants' roots while regulating moisture. There's no guesswork over whether the soil has the right amount of water. Plant the included seeds of your choice, put water in the reservoir, place the jar in a sunny window, and get growing. Assembled in the USA.

Sarah Burrows & Nick Behr

Prior to launching their company, co-owners and married couple, Sarah and Nick struggled to sustain a kitchen garden in their fourth floor Chicago apartment. Despite both honing their gardening skills as children, as busy adults they struggled to grow anything with their full hands. Container gardening is incredibly challenging, as plants are either water-deprived or overwatered (or both), and overtime the soil compacts, cutting off oxygen to the roots. The busy professionals turned to hydroponics for help and were astounded by the results but unimpressed with the quality of the products available on the market. With that the seed for Modern Sprout was planted.

Good design is one of Sarah and Nick's key principals. The brand's understated, sophisticated products bring all the elements of hydroponic growing to their customer's home, and look good doing it. All product lines are designed for style savvy and space-conscious city dwellers, organic-focused home cooks and aspiring indoor gardeners. Their simple, stylish and sustainable planters are self-watering, self-feeding and grow a variety of edibles, flowers and houseplants.

Fantastic indoor garden

Loved this garden. The herbs grew into large, lush looking plants that everyone complimented. Does require fair amount of upkeep and attention.

I love the idea of an indoor herb garden not involving dirt (because of the allergies associated with indoor soil.) The herbs sprouted after about two weeks and slowly grew. We followed the directions, changed the water and loved our little basil and oregano plants for all that they could be. The oregano started to look "burned" so I moved the herbs out of the window...didn't help. After 6 months, the last stragglers are yellow and mostly burned. The basil is nothing more than three stalks, giving it their all but miserably failing. The window, the counter, the center of the dining room table.....no amount of light make these hydroponic herbs happy--and that makes me sad.

    Colors of the jars will look great with light coming through them. The sloppy wrapping of the mint jar crinkled up the label and I'm sure recipient will want to leave the labels on.

          I bought this for my mom as she needed some decor in her new kitchen, and these looked cute and practical. We plan to hang a few in the window, like the picture. However, I had to make my own hanging system out of wire, as the mason jars have a wide mouth and I couldn't find anything large enough to fit. They arrived exactly as pictured and are really adorable. We haven't started growing the herbs yet but are excited to see how it goes!

                  I followed the instructions and on about a week I had seedlings. It's great to watch them grow. And there's no mess of soil. The jars are handy and easy to fill so we can hang them out of the reach of our greens-loving cats, too.

                    I loved the look of these so much I ordered 2... the mint and pansy kit. I followed the instructions to the T, (must say, the fertilizer step was not 100% clear as the fertilizer packaging didn't match the instruction sheet). At first I had them in a bright kitchen window for a few days, but then as the weather became more temperate, I put them on my patio. , I live in Santa Barbara, CA... lovely weather year round. After 3 months... little tiny bit of green sprouting but nothing. Great idea, but execution of the actual growing - not happening. I have other pansies flourishing in my garden and roses that started from bare root, all in all, for as cute of an idea it is, unfortunately, it does not work. Disappointed. :(
