New World’s ‘Little Garden’ promotion appeals to me. For each $40 you spend you get a free seedling kit. This includes a peat pot, a tablet of dried soil, a paper circle impregnated with seeds, and a named marker. You also get an instruction booklet. While it’s intended for children, I enjoyed getting mine started, and now have potential pots of Basil, Parsley, and Rocket sitting on the bathroom window sill.
There are twenty-four different vegetables and herbs available, and the instructions are excellent. They suggest wearing gloves to mix the soil tablet with water (I didn’t bother, but I did wash my hands afterwards as instructed), and to check the soil in the morning and before bed in case water is needed. This promotion is so much better than the consumerist ‘Little Shop’ New World offered last year. I don’t usually have much luck with growing from seeds, but am happy to give these free ones a try.
