Mini Greenhouse Grow Kit- $8
Start your own seeds in a mini-greenhouse! Whether you are new to gardening or have limited space at home, you can still experience the joy of growing your own food. Each mini greenhouse grow kit includes:
1 plastic clam shell container
1 bag of soil
A variety of heirloom seeds
4 biodegradable transplanting pots
How-to videos and updates
Choose from the following seed mixes that best meets your growing interest and needs. Seed availability will vary depending on the season:
Lettuce Mix- includes a variety of green and red lettuces that can be harvested directly from your mini greenhouse as loose, baby lettuce or can be transplanted into the garden and grown as individual lettuce heads.
Greens Mix- includes collard greens, kale, and swiss chard. These greens can be transplanted into the garden and last all winter long. They are delicious cooked or eaten raw in a fresh salad.
Brassica Mix- includes broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. Seedlings will need to be transplanted into the garden so this kit is ideal for those with a large growing space.
Microgreens - comes with a mix of colorful leafy greens that can be harvested directly from your mini greenhouse in just a matter of weeks. Microgreens make a delicious addition to salads and sandwiches and are a great option if you have very limited space to grow outside.
Herbs- comes with a variety of culinary herbs that are easy to grow for beginning gardeners and are great for planting in either a raised bed or container garden.
All of our instructional videos for starting your greenhouse, transplanting seeds, and harvesting microgreens can be found on our YouTube channel!
Kits can be purchased through our store.
