Congrats to Carol! Have fun with all those wonderful herbs!
It’s Bloggy Giveaways Carnival time once again, so I’ve tested, tried, and tasted all manner of things in preparation. I wanted to start the week off with a really fun giveaway: The Indoor Medicinal Herb Garden Kit! I was so excited to try this, especially because I am a notorious lousy gardener. I’m talkin’ brown thumb all the way. Yes, I am an herb freak. I harvest my own herbs and adore doing it. But I tend to do wildcrafting, finding them in the wild and bringing them back home for preparation. A wonderful way to collect herbs, but I always dreamed of having a window full of homegrown, fragrant herbs for teas and tinctures. HerbKits.com has given me the opportunity, and they’ve made it very simple.
HerbKits.com has lots of varieties of indoor kits; you can grow a salsa garden, an herbal tea garden, mushrooms, strawberries–whatever your botanical pleasure. The kits come with everything you need to get started, including 12 packs of herb seeds, Jiffy peat pellets, a little greenhouse tray, simple instructions, even an e-book on CD-ROM. For me, planting was quick and painless due to a fantastic instruction sheet. I’ve tried growing seedlings in the past and most withered away to nothing, but I’m pleased to tell you that today I have a tray filled with beautiful seedlings! Not a withered sprout in the bunch. Yesterday I bought some clay pots in anticipation of that window filled with herbs I’ve been dreaming of.
Want to win your own? I thought so! HerbKits.com is giving away one Indoor Medicinal Herb Garden Kit on dkMommy Spot (retails at $34.95, but it’s on sale now for $29.95.) This would make a fantastic Christmas gift for the whole family to use; or give it to your favorite gardener to give her a jump on spring!
