GroBox Gardens for Children
Grow your own yummy mini vegetable garden!
Have fun growing crunchy carrots, colourful chard, tasty dwarf beans, fresh lettuce and tangy radishes with your friends! Just plant the GroBox where you want your vegetables to appear and watch them grow!
Now for the science bit...
The GroBox already contains compost and seed (so it’s easy-peasy to grow!) and is biodegradable - this means that the cardboard will disappear naturally over time once it is planted in the ground. So it’s great for our planet too!
The GroBox also protects the little seedlings from the cold, frost and pesky garden pests so they can grow into healthy, strong plants.
Did you know, As well as orange, carrots can also be white, yellow, red, and purple!
This kit contains the following seeds:
Carrot - Paris Market 5 (Atlas)
Chard Rhubarb - Chard (Vulcan)
Dwarf Bean - Dual
Lettuce - Little Gem
Radish - Sparkler3.
Sow from May to July and harvest from June to October.
Directions: Planting your GroBox is easy, just follow these simple steps (you might want to get an adult to help you with this bit):
1. Choose a planting spot that gets good sunshine. Dig a hole to the size of the box and approximately 10cm deep. Remove the coloured sleeve and put the complete cardboard box in the ground, face up. (For best results, remove the lid).
2. Water the box and cover with the soil dug from the hole.
3. Water everything again and keep watering regularly. If you’ve planted your GroBox when the weather is hot and dry, you should water more often. Your seeds will start to germinate in a week or so!
4. Enjoy eating your vegetables with family and friends!
Top tip! GroBox will do well in most soils, but try to avoid any waterlogged areas just so the box doesn’t get too mushy!
Actual size of the box: L 29cm x W 23cm x D 4.5cm.
