Thank you for making gardening so easy

Some seeds coming up already.

So the concept is to plant half the paper in the soil and half out but when watering daily the top half dried and gets hard so the plants can't actually grow through. Only one of the seeds actually sprooted and had to break top half of page to allow it to come through. Would not recommend

So good! We're watching it grow as we type - how fun!

Amazing packaging and a great concept. Only a few of my seeds actually germinated and have grown since. Maybe it hasn't the right time of year for the others, but they didn't do too well.

this product didn't work at all...we followed instructions and none of the seeds germinated. we planted other seeds in the conventional manner and they all germinated, but none from this product.

I love the concept, I need all the help I can get when it comes to growing stuff. I have only just planted the seeds (so easy!) and I will report back when I have a windowsill full of fresh herbs!

Very cute for a starting gardener!

This is great for a gardening beginner and for growing in small containers. My Chilli and Basil did not germinate, but the rest of the herbs are growing.

The best mixture of herbs I could grow right on my kitchen windowsill with no fuss or worry. All I needed to do was add water, thats it! It is growing wonderfully!
