This has been a fun experience but the seeds, especially the mountain mint were very fine. Mountain mint was the one I specifically wanted and after 10 days has failed to germinate. I still have some seeds and will try it again. I am into day 10. The plants are still in their baby stages. Hoping for the best!
First, I bought this for a gift, so I can't speak to how well the herbs actually grow. The packaging is very nice, and the pots actually look better and are more substantial than I expected them to be. I'd buy this again.
I just received this today and I’m happy with what I got. I’ve seen a lot of reviews that complain about broken items in the box and such and I can see how that happens. The packaging wasn’t the vest. There really should be something placed in the box to keep the items from getting banged around. I’ve worked for usps and know how packages are handled when transported. They are thrown in bins. This is how things break. But the product is way worth the money. None of my items were broken and it’s very easy to set up by following the included instructions. I have a ton of the pitting mix left over. It’s a bit of overkill on that part but it is for sure a 5 star review.
I planted these about a week and a half ago. Everything has since started to sprout. The kit came with instructions on how to start the seeds. I was surprised by how large the peat pellets were. There was probably twice as much soil as I needed, so I was able to star a bunch of other seeds as well in little dixie cups. I tried to write on the wooden garden markers that came with the kit, but my sharpie bled everywhere and the dates werent readable, If you plan to use them then I would use pen or pencil. But overall, I am really excited about these herbs, the seeds are viable and the kit comes with everything you need to start your garden today! I would buy this again and I would consider giving it as a gift, especially to new gardeners or to children with a green thumb. Very happy with this purchase!
