Very cool concept. Easy to grown and nicely confined so if you have small counter top space it’s not too bulky

This is such a clever idea. I have planted my seeds according to the instructions and have noticed a tiny little sprout from one of the spinach packets. I'm holding thumbs the others sprout too!

As someone else mentioned, the box is really, really tiny (like, 3cm x 8cm) but quite honestly, larger packaging is really not necessary. So I quite like that, because it's far less wasteful. The price is really great for what you get. I really hope my veggies grow!

The box is really, really tiny....
Not worth the purchase although it was cheap

I like the idea of this. I planted some of the seeds in the paper packaging, and others I took out and planted in the soil without paper. I preferred the seeds without the paper, because I like to see my seeds sprout and see their progress :)

Bought it as part of a gift for a budding little gardener, but it was a lot smaller than the picture on the site suggests. The seeds are good though.
