The Urban GIYer (Medium GROWBox)

shipping details

  • Get growing in your apartment, balcony or roof garden with this selection of easy to grow veg.

    This GROWBox is our selection of veg that are perfect for growing in small spaces, ideal for the Urban GIYer about town. You don’t need a veg patch to grow any of them (and let’s face it, where would you find one of them in the city?), as they will all grow in pots or containers.

    This is a box full of possibility – imagine yourself tucking in to bountiful cherry tomatoes, peppery rocket, fiery chilli-peppers and delicious oriental salad leaves. But before you get there, you’ve got to grow it.

    • Seed Packs x 4
      • Chillipepper (Basket of Fire)
      • Oriental Greens (Mixed Greens)
      • Tomato (Tumbling Tom)
      • Rocket (Wild)
    • 1 Pencil and notepad – always a good plan to jot down your sowing dates, progress and good intentions..
    • 10 x Plant Labels – no, you won’t remember what’s in each pot! Always label them..
    • 8cm coir pots x 4 – for sowing some of your seeds in to
    • Compost Discs x 4 – one for each pot (they bulk out when you add water)
    • A little GIY Guide (we’ve stuffed it with loads of stuff we’ve learned about growing)
  • Where to grow them:

    • We recommend sowing the seeds on a windowsill inside your house or apartment to start. Put them somewhere sunny. They will look amazing.
    • When the seedlings get a little bigger, we will be moving them in to bigger pots to grow them either inside or outside on your balcony, terrace, patio or veg patch. Remember, most veg do better in warm, sunny locations – just like humans really.
