Easy Heirloom Seed Kit to Inspire Green Thumbs

July 31, 2012 by

As any budding gardener knows, it’s nice to start simple with something that offers a good chance of success. That’s why I love this sweet heirloom seed kit from Sarah Rainwater Design. It’s beautifully designed and packaged in a wooden crate tied with twine–at $28 the kit makes a clever and affordable gift.

“These heirloom vegetable and herb seeds were chosen because they all pose a minimal challenge for the novice gardener and can be successfully grown indoors or out in almost any US climate,” says Rainwater.

Each kit includes:
• 6 types of heirloom seeds in paper envelopes (sweet basil, cherry tomato, arugula, greek oregano, nasturtium and lemon bergamot)
• 6 biodegradable folded paper pots for starting the seeds
• 1 wooden crate
• 2012 calendar including growing instructions and a recipe

Ships within the US only. Wrapping and a gift note are available for no additional charge.

$28 from Sarah Rainwater Design.

    So nice to see a lush garden with all the flowers!!! Those Astranias are nice. Your sweet pea vines are amazing though. Enjoy those eggs when they start. Everything looks lovely! Especially love the Glads on the fence!
