Amber’s Garden Review

I love giving unique gifts to my children for the holidays and Amber’s Garden has the perfect idea. Amber’s Garden Ready-To-Plant Herb Garden is an excellent way to teach children about the importance of growing their own food sources. We have always had an organic vegetable and fruit garden and my children have been very interested in participating in the process. Amber’s Garden provides pre-seeded vegetable or herb garden mats that finally allow my kids to have a gardening project that is all their own from start to finish. There are seven fun vegetable kits to choose from including Asian, Herb, Salsa, Pumpkin, Salad, Rainbow Crop and Summer Crop. The burlap mat is 100% biodegradable which helped my children visualize composting and the biodegrading process. I appreciate that the burlap mat also acts as a weed barrier for 8-10 weeks. To start Amber’s Garden simply roll the mat out in a sunny location of amended garden soil or cut to fit in a patio container and cover as directed with top soil. I live in Florida so the sun can be very intense and my children planted their herb garden in a spot that had morning sun and afternoon shade….it worked perfectly. The instructions are very easy to follow and provide watering tips too….in as little as 3-5 days your sprouts will appear which is what got my kids so excited they actually jumped up and down and shouted with delight at their plant “babies.” My children’s herb garden includes Basil, Oregano, Cilantro and Thyme. Within 30 days my kids can start enjoying their harvest which is the best part. I am very impressed with this fun gardening project and it would be an excellent gift idea for eco-conscious families who are interested in educating children about where food comes from and how it is produced.

Amber’s Garden has an excellent website complete with video tutorials and loaded with information. To purchase any of the Amber’s Garden products in this review or to learn more go to their site.
