Glowing Garden Style


Having your own garden has immense benefits, and the beauty of creating a garden is that you can start small, even indoors. I grew up with a garden, as both my parents were very keen on producing their own herbs and vegetables. Even though we have only started a garden a few years ago of our own, we have been able to reap the benefits of harvesting our own produce and garden herbs.

In collaboration with PlowBox, we received a lot to get started with for the spring season of planting. PlowBox is a subscription service by Seattle Seed Company (SSC), and delivers one-hundred percent organic seeds, and eco-friendly or garden related gifts each season.
The boxes they create are packed with the proper sachets and instructions to help you understand where, when, and how to grow your own seeds. The company sends out their seed and garden boxes four times a year, and a special gift is also included.

You may tailor your subscriptions, and the boxes are not only by season, but by climates as well. For example, depending on what you want to grow and/or your locale, you might choose between Arctic, Cool, Mild, Warm, Hot, or Tropical climate specific boxes.

The spring box came with an eco-friendly notebook by Good Nature Publishing Co. (with garden quotes inside the front), a welcome card with instructions, blank recipe cards, an expandable pod to help germinate a tomato or pepper before planting, and ten sachets of seeds: Nasturtium (an edible flower), tomato, peas, lettuce, carrots, and spinach amongst others. All garden seeds are non-GMO, certified organic.

SSC buys their seed from certified organic farms and cooperatives, and then select diverse seeds of high quality and value before selling them. By the time they get into your box and are welcomed in your home, rest assured in knowing that the seeds you plant are safe. And, by subscribing to one box or a box every quarter, you are also supporting a family-owned business.

"We are dedicated to the health and sustainability of our local and global communities and by encouraging people to buy locally and eat organic, we feel that we can make a difference in the world around us." -SSC  

Price: 45 USD/ quarter
Packaging: Everything came carefully packaged in branded printed cardboard box.

In the spring box, apparently Nutscene twine, and a versatile brush is also included, but I didn't receive them and cannot honestly review those. All items in our PlowBox sent were of great quality, and considering the uniqueness of the box, quality, and what is prepared for you with the instructional, it's a good value. It's also a great way to introduce gardening to your own littlelings; educating and introducing children to the world of gardening can be a lot of fun.
