Our Little Roots is a subscription box that sends you (or your child) a monthly delivery of everything you need to begin growing your own garden.
Each Our Little Roots box will contain a packet of non-GMO seeds, organic soil, stakes, and a biodegradable peat pot. When you sign up, you’ll get to indicate your level of gardening experience, select where your seeds will be planted (patio/balcony, backyard, front yard, windowsill), and the type of sun exposure the location gets. Our Little Roots will then select seeds based on the season of the year and where each would thrive in certain climates. If you live up north where it’s colder, they’ll tailor your selection to seeds that can better withstand harsh conditions.
Subscriptions are $11.95/month, or as low as $8.75/month with an annual plan. (Right now you can save 25% off your first box with coupon code “FIRSTROOT“!)
Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 Our Little Roots box!
The little green box!
A peek inside. — Lovin’ the pink pot!
April’s featured plant was Blue Lake Beans. An info card gave a little background on the bean as well as how to best enjoy them.
The reverse side of the card included planting instructions and tips for successful growing.
Soil Pellet, Planting Pot, & Garden Stake – Sometimes they include a bag of loose soil, other times it’s a soil pellet. The planting vessel also varies. This is the first time I’ve gotten a plastic (I’m assuming eco-friendly?) pot. I love that it’s pink and that it came with it’s own matching drip tray.
The Seeds – 100% organic, non-GMO Blue Lake Bean seeds were provided. Our Little Roots sends only the highest quality seeds chosen every month based on factors like hardiness, germination, and season.
A recipe featuring your harvested beans was also included (instructions on reverse side). Looks tasty!
An Our Little Roots subscription is such a convenient, fun way to get kids interested in gardening & growing their own food. I like that they mix things up every month with new variations of soil and planting vessels. Remember — If you’d like to sign up, you can save 25% off your first box with coupon code “FIRSTROOT“!
April 2016 Our Little Roots Review
Our Little Roots continues to make little tweaks that are definitely improving the overall value of the subscription. The recent addition of printed materials was much appreciated (and needed!). 🙂
