There’s No Way to Kill Plants With This New Indoor Garden Kit
We get it: Gardening is tough, and not everybody is born with the green thumb (or the access to outdoor space!) to support it. But if you’ve always been firmly in the “not a gardener” camp, we miiiight have some news you’ll want to hear. A new company called Gardenuity is creating garden kits with professional grow support built right in, which means even non-green thumbs can see something bountiful (and edible) sprout at home. Gone are the days when we used to stare enviously at our favorite Insta-influencer‘s bucolic backyard snaps; now, we have our eyes on containers of veggies, herbs, and even cocktail garnishes, in spite of our long histories of accidentally killing houseplants. (Sorry, succulents.)
There are two ways to approach gardening with Gardenuity: an indoor, ready-to-go herb garden that can flourish right on your kitchen countertop, or a more labor-intensive (but equally fail-safe) outdoor kit to really let you get your hands dirty. No matter what, Gardenuity will be there to guide you every step of the way. Simply punch in your zip code to start. Gardenuity keeps track of what plants are sure to succeed in given climates depending on the time of year and will only display those that match your location — sort of like Tinder for plants.
From there, you can select whatever strikes your fancy, and the company will ship you an all-inclusive kit (compost and all). But here’s where Gardenuity’s system varies from a trip to your local plant store: They’ll actually offer online guidance throughout your plant’s grow season, connecting you with pros, warning you about inclement weather (better move those tomatoes inside!), and dropping little tips to make your garden a success. Still not convinced? Gardenuity actually promises you a good harvest, thanks to their Grow Guarantee. Even first-time growers will have a hard time arguing with that one.
The result is a holistic system that seems tailor-made for New Year’s resolutions: It helps you eat healthier, learn a new skill, and be more eco-friendly all in one. And with their guarantee in place, we feel pretty confident that just about anyone can find success with this kit… which makes it a pretty good gifting recommendation too. Kits run from $28 to $39 and are available year-round.
