My mother loves gardening but her health is keeping her inside this year. She is very difficult to buy for and this was a perfect gift. When I called her the first thing she wanted to talk about was her "crops" and that she would be able to eat them soon. She even had my sister take a picture to post on Facebook! We will be ordering the refill kits!

It fits my small window ledge perfectly allowing me to add a garden to my window. However the lid/water tray does not in any way interlock with the bottom of the white planter which is a terrible oversight. It looks so great in the pictures, but the planter can easily slide off the tray. I've been able to design and 3d print a piece to keep it from sliding around, but I shouldn't have to re-engineer a product that I purchased at the price I paid. There are also 6 large holes in the bottom of the planter (to let excess water out- good idea) but there is nothing preventing the soil from leaking out as well. Once again something I am fixing, but really shouldn't have to.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Micro-Green Kits:

    Seriously? I looked up how to cultivate your own microgreens after I purchased this to make sure I didn't do anything wrong and I realized I had 1/80th the seeds needed. The metal box had holes that weren't welded so draining didn't occur in the bottom pre cut round holes. There were not nearly enough seeds and one of the three kinds barely sprouted

          I sent this to my sister who enjoys gardening. She lives in Chicago so this type of thing is perfect for her to grow veggies indoors. She was excited about the gift and everything sprouted quickly. I would buy this again.

            This garden is wonderful! It came exactly as I expected, very attractive, the perfect size for my windowsill. I ordered the veggie kit, bc I liked the way their greens looked. I followed planting instructions exactly as they were written; planted the seeds, covered the planter in plastic wrap, and placed in a warm place out of the sunlight. In only two days, I already had sprouts! It has now been six days since planting, and all three greens are flourishing!! It is amazing, and so fun to watch. I can't say enough great things about this item

                Comments about UncommonGoods Micro-Green Kits:

                The seeds sprouted, but the resuilting "microgreens" were indeed "micro"--to small to be easily edible, and not containing much flavor. The set is also grossly overpriced for a bunch of seeds and a box.
