For many, the icy grip of winter is still very much upon us, and the thought of gardening outside is still a distant dream. However, you can beat those winter blues by checking out a company called Back to the Roots, which sells kits that enable you to grow vegetables like peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, and microgreens indoors with minimal effort.
The company offers several different options. If you’re looking to add some green to your windowsill and ensure you have plenty of herbs on hand, the herb set is a great choice. You’ll get seeds for cilantro, sage, mint, and basil. The kit also comes with organic soil and a special ingredient that allows you to water your seeds directly in the cans without having to worry about draining. It’s incredibly easy—no mess, no harsh chemicals, and no seed transplanting.
While growing your own herbs and produce inside is a great way to provide food and decorate your kitchen, Back to the Roots also offers some plant options that aren’t meant to be eaten. They have an entire selection of self-watering plants that are set in a large glass jar. These kits come with the same organic soil as the herbs, as well as the biochar chemical and a clay pot. Watering is only required once a week, and the entire method has been adapted from ancient methods used by farmers in desert climates for consistent watering.
If you have kids, or you just want to liven up your office or classroom, the Water Garden from Back to the Roots is a fantastic choice. This kit comes with a 3-gallon fish tank, meant to house a small fish under the roots of the microgreens and wheatgrass that grows on top of the tank. The waste from the fish fertilizes the plants while the plant roots help filter the water and keep it clean.
All of the Back to the Roots products are made in the USA and come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. They also offer free shipping on any order over $35.
