I’ve never been too hot at gardening. Plants seem to wilt the minute they enter the house and I then manage to over or under water them. And there’s the maintenance too. All that planting the right bulbs together, getting the soil just right and making sure they’re not too much in the shade or too much in the sunlight.
That’s what appeals to me about GroBox Gardens. You simply plant the box. Really, it’s that simple. Just open it up and plant it in the garden, container or window box and year after year the flowers will come up and in bigger clumps each time.
Each GroBox Garden is designed by horticulturist Jayne Lawton who has trained with the Royal Horticultural Society. The boxes are biodegradable and will rot down naturally in the soil. In fact they’re made from organic sustainable, recycled and biodegradable material that benefits the garden ecosystem.
As well as flowering plants you can select herbs and vegetables too. Jayne has handpicked each little garden to offer maximum colour, scent or delicious veggies or herbs. And they’re a bargain at around £6.25 each.
