Flash Post: Plant By Numbers
What It Is: Never mind tulips and daisies – how about planting an actual tree to spruce up (see what I did there?) your backyard? These heritage-style growing kits include everything you need to plant your choice of beautiful trees, plants, and flowers alike, including helpful instructions to take your seedling from the great indoors to the even better outdoors. No matter what your age or gardening talent, this is a fun spin on garden-inspired gifts.
Who It’s For: Your friends that are also new parents, so they can plant a tree to signify the arrival of their little one. Your niece or nephew, so they can plant their own Christmas tree and hope beyond hope it’ll be ready for harvesting by next year. Your parents, to add to their incomparably well-tended garden.
What It Costs: Each kit is in the $8.25 range.
Where It’s At: You can order directly from the manufacturer – The Jonsteen Company – with base shipping costs of around $7 (foreign shipping costs are noted to be a little higher). You can also get in touch with them via their Customer Service email / phone number (scroll down to the bottom of the page) and ask what retailers in Canada stock their products.
