Bought a few different varieties of these as a birthday gift for a little eco-warrior and he LOVED THEM! Cute packaging, fun activity and a sweet way of learning how to grow your own food.

Lovely idea, concept and packaging!

Yay for saving the bees and growing some lovely plants that both you and the bees can benefit from. Nay for the very little amount of seeds stuck in between the paper. This was my first paper tape seeds that I have purchased. Honestly, I'd stick to seeds in packets, as they contain way more seeds and way less packaging.

My child enjoyed planting the seeds for spring day.

I am a newbie gardener and everything grew first time.. I'm feeding the bees, YAY!

So I thought this was a bigger type bow (sprout seeds in box) but this is a fault on my side. I love the pamphlet with all the needed information for growing/planting.

I have about a 50/50 success rate with these. Sometimes nothings grows or the plants die after about a month. Other times I have ended up with massive plants that take over the planting area.
When they do grow I do see an increase in pollinating insects.

Such a fantastic concept and product! Very easy to plant and grow, even for a complete beginner gardener. Always good to do our part for the bees!

Easy, simple and effective! Bees and bugs galore now :)
