certified organic GMO free seeds, garden grow box, organic seed starter soil mix, complete easy to follow instructions

My DIY "garden in a box" kit is a fun & educational gift for kids! It contains *everything* your child needs to start growing delicious, nutritious microgreens on your kitchen counter - just add water, and within 48 hours you'll see your first tender green sprouts.

Microgreens are a wonderful project for children, because the seeds sprout so quickly, require so little attention, and are ready to harvest within 7 to 10 days. And they taste good! Microgreens have all the flavor of the fully grown vegetables, but none of the bitterness associated with mature greens. Kids who may not like cooked broccoli or kale, for example, just love the bright taste of these fresh microgreens snipped and eaten raw ... especially since they grew them themselves.

Even better, microgreens are absolutely packed with nutrients - up to 40 times more nutritious than the full-grown veggies by weight. (But you don't have to tell them that part, lol.)

Your "Garden in a Box" kit has everything you'll need to get growing, literally in 15 minutes:

~ Grow Box: 6x6-inch clamshell-style lidded box with ventilation holes, made of crystal clear, BPA-free, food safe & reusable plastic.

~ Seeds: one half-ounce / 8mL packet of organic seeds - I recommend Daikon Radish, but you may choose any you like!

~ Soil: my own custom-blended organic seed starter soil mix.

~ Instructions: a complete booklet of easy instructions, and growing tips for success.


This is a fun project set for kids, or a great gourmet gift for beginning adult gardeners!

All my seeds are USDA-certified organic, GMO-free seeds produced specifically for microgreen growing - meaning, they are not treated with fungicides or chemical fertilizers as conventional garden seeds often are.

For instant gratification, I recommend the Daikon Radish seeds for this kit - they are the fastest and easiest to grow, and have a mild radish flavor that kids love. But you may choose any seed type you like from these easy to grow seeds I also recommend, using the pull-down list above:

Beets - Chioggia
Broccoli - DiCiccio Heirloom
Broccoli Rabe - Rapini
Chard - Ruby Red
Chia - Salvia hispanica
Clover - Red
Kale - Red Russian
Mustard Greens - Oriental (spicy)
Pet Greens - for Cats
Pet Greens - for Dogs
Radish - China Rose (spicy)
Radish - Daikon

Shipping Options

> I ship kits to any US or Canadian address via USPS First Class mail.

> If you need your kit in a hurry, I offer a Priority shipping upgrade at checkout.

> Sorry, I can't ship these kits outside the US and Canada, due to international import restrictions on agricultural products.


About Microgreens

Microgreens are vegetable, herb and grain seedlings harvested beyond the sprout stage, but before the baby greens stage of growth. Microgreens are more nutritious than sprouts, and even tastier than baby greens!

Anyone can grow microgreens, anywhere there's a little sunshine, any time of year. Requiring only a week or so from the time you plant to the time you harvest, microgreens provide instant gratification for busy people, and can be a fascinating project for children.

Each seedling you cut will taste amazingly like its grown-up counterpart: radish microgreens are peppery like a radish, and arugula, broccoli and kale microgreens taste like the full-grown greens minus any bitterness.

Microgreens are eaten raw, and can be used like sprouts or fresh greens: they're super in salads, sandwiches and tacos, for starters. Toss a handful into smoothies ... fold some into an omelette!

Returns and exchange details

My DIY microgreens kits include delicate pieces of vintage or unique china, often one-of-a-kind, so I package them with great care.

Should the postal service manage to break your china piece, do let me know right away. If possible I will replace your piece; if I do not have a matching piece, you can choose another from my shop, or I will refund your purchase price, whichever you prefer.

I package and ship your order as quickly as possible, normally within 1 to 3 days, via the most economical shipping method available, with delivery confirmation tracking. I can ship my organic seeds and microgreens DIY kits to the USA and to Canada.

I regret that I cannot ship to other International destinations, due to the laws of other countries governing importation of agricultural products.

If you live outside the USA and Canada, I encourage you to seek out a local source for organic seeds so that you can enjoy your own mini microgreens garden, too!
