Whether you are a novice or an expert gardener, this Spring garden basket contains everything you need to successfully grow your own delicious Spring vegetables (except the sun and water, of course!)

Each seed variety has been specifically selected for its suitability for container gardening; so whether you live in an urban apartment or on a suburban plot, you will likely be able to find space for this collection of plants.

Each basket contains:
(1) Copy of Roots, Shoots, Buckets, & Boots
(1) 4-quart basket
(1) rustic trowel
(5) starter pots
(5) expanding soil plugs
(5) wooden plant markers
(5) varieties of Spring vegetable seeds (Cabbage, Lettuce, Carrots, Radishes, & Peas)

Each basket comes gift-wrapped, and we are happy to add a personalized message to the recipient upon request. These make an excellent Valentine's Day gift for gardeners, nature lovers, moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, and kids of all ages.

They are also a great addition to homeschool life skill, science, and nature study. Your children will not only grow delicious and aromatic herbs but also gain a greater understanding of where their food comes from.

If you are interested in purchasing our other available garden kits, you may select the "Add-On" option when adding the kit to your cart. If you select an add-on, you will receive only the additional pots, soil plugs, plant markers, and seed packets for the corresponding kit, and they will be packaged together in the same basket.


Information on Roots, Shoots, Buckets, & Boots by Sharon Lovejoy

"Plant a pumpkinseed with a child, and cultivate wonder. This simple act of reconnecting with children with nature is Sharon Lovejoy's purpose and joy and gift. Author of Sunflower Houses: Garden Discoveries for Children of All Ages and Hollyhock Days: Garden Adventures for the Young at Heart, Sharon Lovejoy is a nationally known garden writer whose books, television specials, and projects at her learning landscape in California have introduced thousands of children to the pleasures of gardening.

In her newest book, Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots, she presents 12 spirited, easy-to-implement ideas for theme gardens that parents and kids can grow together. Illustrated throughout by the author's own lyrical watercolors, each garden includes a plan, the planting recipe -- seeds, seedlings, and growing instructions spelled out step-by-step -- and activities. There's the Pizza Patch , a giant-size wheel garden planted in "slices" of tomatoes, zucchini, oregano, and basil. A Flowery Maze to get lost in. A Moon Garden of night-blooming flowers, including a moonflower tent. And Mother Nature's Medicine Chest."

Discovery Walks teach kids how the gardens work, and a chapter on gardening basics includes a child-friendly 10-Minute Plan for planting and maintenance, plus a list of the top 20 plants guaranteed to make gardeners out of kids.
“Sure to make kids want to get into the garden.”
