- 4 Half Pint Glass Mason Jars with lids
- Organic Potting Soil and Pebbles
- Organic Crushed White Volcanic Rock
- 4 Seed Packets
I watched the getting started video as suggested and it was straight forward. The kit also includes several labels, etc., so I think including written instructions would be beneficial. Especially for those who have unreliable internet or just don't use it (yes, they are out there.)
I started the seeds directly in the soil without soaking on March 31.
Day 3, April 3 - basil first started to sprout
The parsley was not showing any signs of life until yesterday so you have to be patient with it. Once my little seedlings are stronger, I will thin and attempt to transplant some. I wasn't sure how well the seeds would do. Now that I have seen such a high percentage of sprouts, I would recommend using only part of the seed packet and save part for later, or starting them in a different containers.
Here is an Amazon link to the kit I received - Herb Garden Kit.
My kit included basil, parsley, cilantro and clover. The new kits include mint, not clover.
I also started another kit that includes savory, dill, chervil and arugula yesterday. I soaked the seeds this time and the dill is already sprouting! I will post a review of that kit soon. It can be purchased on Amazon here: Savory Herb Kit . Sometimes you can purchase the kits together on Amazon along with a culinary seed collection. I have started some of those and will also review their progress soon.
