Seedball - Italian Herb Kitchen Grow Kit
This Italian Herb Kitchen Grow Kit from seed cultivating experts Seedball is a brilliant and easy way to kick off your garden adventures with growing your own crop of parsley, basil and oregano from seed.
Each pod contains 2 peat-free coir discs and one seedball with 5-10 organic herb seeds, making a system which is simple to set up and relatively fool proof for starting off growing your own herbs.
|“To use simply remove the seedball, fill the pod with warm water up to the neck and set aside while the coir discs expand. Then, pop the seedball on top of the coir, where it will absorb water and stay nicely soaked (you’ll need to add more water if it becomes a tad dry). From here the seed balls will sprout within a few weeks and once the growth is well above the top of the pod you can transfer into a bigger pot to allow the plant to fully grow, leaving a re-usable pod for storing dried herbs.”|
