Grow Your Own Garden! - Machine Shed


The Backyard Safari Gardens are back in the Machine Shed Gift Shop this year! This week marked the first official day of Spring and it’s time to get your seeds planted.  The garden kits help you “grow happiness in small places.” Although there are many different kinds of kits, this year we decided to plant the ‘Colors’, ‘Salsa’ and ‘Little Bunny Garden’.  Each kit comes with everything you will need to grow your plants!

Egg Carton Kit Includes:

  • 6 Packages of Different Seeds
  • Starter Soil
  • Wooden Plant Steaks
  • Recipes
  • Growing Instructions
  • Transplanting Instructions
  • Pencil
  • 100% Recycled Fiber Egg Carton Planter

Growing Tip: 

We have found that covering the eggs cartons with saran wrap stimulates a greenhouse effect which allows to keep moisture in. However, the cartons must still be checked daily for moisture and germination. Keep the seeds warm to encourage germination, as well as rotating them very day to keep the stems strong.

Week 1 Update:

The seeds are sprouting and on there way to growing into wonderful plants!
