We know, we know. It’s entirely too early to even think about bringing your garden indoors. The days are still long and it’s still hot out! It still feels like summer! (In most of the country, anyway. Alaska, you’re a horse of a different color.) Believe it or not, though, fall is right around the corner and for many people, that means gardening season is over.
Cue the sad violins…
But it doesn’t have to be this way! We’ve got a solution, and it doesn’t involve simply staring at Pinterest until spring. Now is the perfect time to start that indoor garden, so you can get your "green" fix all winter long. And we can help! Our grow kits, seed bombs and other plant-based gifts are wonderful gifts for plant lovers and gardeners, as well as a fun way to transition into fall! Read on to learn more about our gardening gift ideas!
Seed Bombs and Seed Balls
We put these two options first, as they require a container and soil. That’s a little more work on your part! But we still adore seed bombs and seed balls and think they make great gifts for plant lovers. They let you grow more than one plant in the same container! The Grow Good Times seed bomb includes mint, lemon basil, thyme and lavender, all plants that are perfect for muddling and infusing into your favorite cocktails. Of course, even if you just let these good times grow and never harvest, you’re sure to love the aroma these plants give off! We’ve also got a Well Being Boost seed bomb, that contains sage, lemon balm, coneflower and chamomile. Those are some soothing scents, too!
The seed balls are similar, but these fun grow kits contain selections of herbal plants. Each package also contains five seed balls, so you get more plants for your money! The Grow Peace seed balls features a selection of non-GMO seeds known for their healing properties, like echinacea and sage. Simply plant, water and grow! The Grow Comfort seed balls contain a selection of culinary herbs like oregano, chive, rosemary and more. Perfect if you’re a kitchen whiz, but also perfect if you’re not! Culinary herbs are some of the most aromatic plants around, so your house will smell amazing all winter long!
Tiny Terracotta Grow Kits
Gardeners come in all levels, and not everyone has a collection of pots, soil or seeds just, you know, lying around. And purchasing all those items can get expensive! Now, if that’s your jam, we say go for it. But if you’re after a lot less work and money spent, then check out our container grow kits! The terracotta pot in these grow kits is a wonderful reminder of warm summer days, and gives you a chance to keep clover, daisies and lavender right on your windowsill. Or at your desk! All you need to do is add water and watch your new plant grow. So easy to keep summer going inside!
Best of all, though, is that these lovely terracotta pots are reusable. That means our grow kits are a great way to start your container collection, making them ideal gifts for plant lovers!
Hydroponic Grow Kits
We love this gorgeous grow kit, which utilizes a smoked glass tumbler that will look fantastic on any desk, table or windowsill. It also might just be the easiest of all our grow kits: you don’t even need soil! Using a passive, soilless hydroponics starter kit, this cool grow kit provides vibrant and fragrant basil, mint or lavender plants with almost no work at all on your part. Just add water! Like the terracotta kits above, the glass container is also designed to be reused. Just like that, another container for next year’s garden! That’s why we think this grow kit is a fantastic gift for novice and advanced gardeners alike!
Plant Lover Gift Box
Recently featured in Self.com, this unique gift box is an ideal gift for plant lovers and gardeners of all stripes! It features most of what we’ve shown above, plus other plant-themed goodies like thank you notes, a mug, and even fabulous plant socks! Of course, we think this fun “green” gift box is also wonderful as a housewarming gift, and it’s also an excellent holiday present! After all, it’s an easy way to get an indoor garden going when the temperatures outside are below freezing!
Winter is coming, as the saying goes. But with Goodly’s help, you can be surrounded by green all year long!
