    Comments about MICRO-GREEN KITS:

    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

        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.

                Comments about MICRO-GREEN KITS:

                I just received this and put together. Instructions clear, steps easy. HOWEVER, the metal planting pot is not secure over the bamboo cover/platform. As a cover, there's a lip to keep wood from slipping, but when used as a drain there is no way to secure pot from sliding all over. I put some tape where it's not obvious, but for this reason alone, not sure I'd recommend. I have skinny window sills and they slant slightly, so without the tape, there would go my plans for a window mini-garden. Fix that and I'd highly recommend.

                Great for the windowsill! I don't even get too much sunlight in my apartment so they probably grew a little more slowly than they would with more sun, but it still was successful. They were so delicious and easy to grow.

                  Got this for my mom as a retirement gift - it was very easy to set up and she already has seedlings. It also fits perfectly on her windowsill.

                  Comments about MICRO-GREEN 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.

                    This is great in theory. However, when it said compact I didn't think it meant this tiny. My grandparents have not used the product yet because is a Christmas gift, but I think it will still work for them. I bought it because my Grandfather has limited mobility and loves to garden. I thought it would be easier for him if he could place it on a table, so the size works for that. But value compared to cost, it was a little disappointing.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivered quickly and at a decent shipping price considering the amount of items I bought. Most of my boxes were in good shape, but on or two were damaged. Thankfully nothing inside the boxes were damaged. This company took great care in packaging my products!
