MakersKit Mason Herb Garden Savory Edition

I received this kit as a gift along with the Herb Garden Kit I blogged about previously. You can read that review here: MakersKit Herb Garden Kit. This kit contains the following:

  • 4 - Half Pint Glass Mason Jars
  • Organic Potting Soil and Pebbles
  • Organic Crushed White Volcanic Rock (Perlite)
  • 4 Seed Packets (Savory, Chervil, Dill, Arugula)
Labels of various kinds are also included. Having previously watched the instructional video, I was able to easily replicate the process with this kit. I soaked the seeds overnight this time.

Unfortunately, I did not use the mason jar for my arugula seeds because I wanted to start them in a manner that would be easier to transfer the seedlings to my raised bed outside. I did, however, use the extra jar to start some sweet marjoram seeds and it worked perfectly.

Day 1 - April 2, 2016 - Soaked the seeds in lukewarm water inside the jars overnight.

Day 2 - April 3, 2016 - Placed the soaked seeds on a paper towel and put back in the jar. Closed the lid and let them sit.

Day 6 - April 7, 2016 - Completed the kits and put the seeds inside.

Day 7 - April 8

Day 7 - one day in jars and all seeds are sprouting

Marjoram - Day 7

Each day I check the water levels by looking at the perlite and if there is no water I add some. I keep them in a warm place out of direct sunlight so they don't burn or dry out.

Day 10 - April 11
Day 10
Marjoram -  Day 10

I have been cooped up in the house and after such a great success with my last kit, I decided to use some of the seeds to try different seed-starting methods. As mentioned, I did not start the arugula seeds in the jar but below you can see that the seeds MakersKit sent are viable.

Here is an Amazon link to the kit I received: Savory Herb Garden Kit . The sweet marjoram seeds can be purchased in a set on Amazon here: ORGANIC NON-GMO Culinary Herb Set .
