inspired to do some micro-gardening? new in store. April 12 2012

The sun is shining, the cherry blossoms are floating in the air and spring just might be here to stay. All this blooming and blossoming inspires us to tell you about a few new products we have in the showroom.


The MicroGreens Grow Box from Potting Shed Creations makes the perfect windowsill veggie garden. Included in the kit is a soil-less growing medium, seeds for organic tom thumb peas, organic red acre cabbage, organic mini carrots, all the planting, growing and harvesting instructions packaged in a beautiful recycled US steel grow box (18"x 3" x 2.5"). Fresh, flavourful micro-veggies should be ready  in 1 to 2 weeks, for salads, sandwiches, soups and hors d'oeuvres. 




We are continually impressed with Potting Shed's dedication to sourcing and using recycled or re-purposed materials for their products. The Growbottle is made from up-cycled or re-purposed wine bottles, the growing system uses a wool felt wick and a clay growing pebble medium which can be rinsed out and re-planted..  Growbottles make growing your own indoor hydroponic herb garden simple and easy. Growbottle kits and re-plant kits are available in organic mint, basil or oregano.

And just in case all the pretty cherry trees are inducing a zen-like mood, Potting Shed has also brought us a collection of bonsai growing kits. Bonsai Boxes use carefully selected tree species, chosen for their beauty and quick growth-rate, and come with everything needed to grow and sculpt your own beautiful bonsai tree.
