Seed Starting Kit with Plantable Paper and Pot - Tomatoes, Basil and More

  • $ 8.00

Dig life * Plant seeds!

Perfect for budding chefs or beginner gardeners, these sweet gift boxes supply everything needed to get going! They also make excellent gifts. Start them growing right on a kitchen counter, window sill, or office desk. This earth-friendly gift includes 100% biodegradable materials - our unique recycled plantable paper that we make ourselves - plus our wonderful plant-based biodegradable pots. Instructions are included specific to the seed type.

Create your own custom arrangement from among 12 seed types in addition to the tomatoes: Bell peppers, tomatillos, carrots, arugula, kale, basil, dill, parsley, oregano, lavender, and a flower mix that includes zinnia, marigolds, poppies, and shasta daisies.

These DIY seed starter kits are an all natural, eco friendly way to start seeds.

Each is packaged and ready for gift giving in a small kraft gift box with a natural raffia ribbon and tag that identifies the seed type.

Tomatoes and kale are perfect vegetables to try as a first vegetable to grow. Kale sprouts so easily and can be planted even in cold weather. Tomatoes can be started inside before the last winter frost or as soon as spring arrives. They pair especially nicely with basil for a starter pizza garden or to make caprese salad.

Each planting kit comes with the following:
- 1 plantable paper seed piece (your choice seed type)
- 1 eco-friendly biodegradable pot, 2 inch
- expandable soil pellet for growing
- planting instructions
- kraft paper gift box, 2 inches
- natural raffia ribbon
- tag that identifies the seed type

** Please note, we cannot guarantee specific colors. We can only guarantee it will be a tomato shape for the tomatoes and tomatillos, the pepper shape for the pepper, orange colored paper for the carrots, often a leaf shape or heart. For the others, they will typically be a leaf shape, which can vary in color. The seeds inside the piece will always be exactly those ordered.

OPTIONAL: Upgrade your set to include a BIODOME. The biodome is a self-contained miniature greenhouse made entirely from plants (corn). The clear cup and rounded lid traps moisture inside to help seeds sprout, allows light in, and provides space for the leaves to grow. Shown in thumbnail photos.

These clear cups are re-usable and made entirely from plants: corn. They are biodegradable. Growing with these cups helps seeds to sprout because they seal in moisture. The top features a vent hole with removable cover so you can let out excess moisture if it becomes too humid inside the biodome. The covers are labeled with the seed type. When you upgrade to the greenhouse biodome, you also receive a larger gift box, for a bigger gift that is about twice the size. After the seeds have sprouted, you can save and re-use the biodome for more seed sprouting with another pot. The biodome may be composted (but not in a typical backyard compost pile, they need high heat to break down). We recommend using them again and again!

These fiber pots are made entirely from plants. Growing with a biodegradable pot makes everything easy — just plant the entire pot right in the ground. No plastic waste left over, no shock to seedlings.

The fiber inhibits mold growth and helps plants grow stronger root systems. The roots grow right through the sides of the pots instead of balling up inside a plastic pot. When using these special pots, plants require less fertilizer and are more resilient to disease because the fibers provide natural fertilizer. Moisture flow is better and seeds sprout more easily.

All pots are made from the fiber between the husk and outer shell of a coconut, and are a 100% renewable resource.

The seed paper pieces are made from recycled paper that we make by hand right here in Walla Walla. We embed seeds in the pulp as part of the process. Plant like you do other seeds. To start the leaf growing, wet it well, press it into damp soil, cover a tiny bit, and keep it damp. Most seeds like soil temperatures to be around 70ºF and will germinate best when the soil is warm. Care for the seeds and sprouts by providing a proper growing environment.

Made with eco-friendly packaging that is either re-used or recycled. It is meant to be re-use or recycled too. Keep it moving!
