My mom's birthday was right around the corner. She loves tulips and I usually buy her a bouquet around this time of year. Then I saw the tree-to-be kit! Now, she can have tulips all year long! And what's even more perfect is, when she got it she was telling me how they'd her family had a tulip tree in their yard when she was younger and she'd always wanted one of her own. Yes, they're seeds... but isn't that fun part? Caring for something and watching it grow? :)

I got this tree as a gift for my Dad, who is an avod gardener. I am not, so I read the description carefully before purchase (even the description on the separate tab). I had decided against the Grown your own apple tree, because it's description said it would take at least 10 years to yield apples. This tree had no such disclaimer, so I bought it, thinking it would be maybe 3-5 years to yield blooms. Not so ... when my Dad got the gift and opened it, the card said 10-15 to yield blooms. This was disappointing. My Dad thought the idea and packaging were good, however.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Tree To Be Kit:

    We purchased this tree for my sister & brother-in law, to grow at their new home. This was perfect for them to grow with their kids and plan in the yard of their "forever home." They followed the instruction exactly and even waited until the cooler months, as the instructions suggested. Unfortunately they haven't gotten a single sprount. Very disappointing for the kids too, as they were looking forward to growing this together as a family and transplanting it outside in the spring.

      After trying to grow the seeds two different times, we followed the directions exactly as they stated and we got nothing to grow. We were very disappointed as we wanted to grow a tulip tree at our house to go with our relationship.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Tree To Be Kit:

          I gave this as a gift to my sister and my best friends. They both tried to grow it exactly according to the package description. Neither set of seeds grew. It has been over 6 months now. I am really disappointed, because I was really excited about this gift. It was going to be a great symbol of the beginning of their new homes. I have enjoyed every other product I've bought from this website, and this one was a complete fail. I do not suggest you buy this.

                I purchased this for a house warming gift. The party hasn't happened yet, so am not sure of the reaction of the recipient. Too bad they want a review on this product so fast after receiving the item.
