As you probably know, there’s nothing better than getting a gift that grows. With Valentine’s Day and spring just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to put together DIY Garden Gifts for friends, significant others, kids, and more. These seed starting kits are super easy — and inexpensive — to make and can be customized to fit your creativity and personal style. This is a fun project for a cold winter afternoon and also a great activity to do with your children.
The complete seed starting kits can be started on a sunny windowsill 4-8 weeks before the last frost in your area, depending on the variety. Just like most wildflowers, the seed packets you include with your kit are extremely easy-to-grow and can make even a novice gardener feel like they have a green thumb.
The supplies for these Seed Starting Kits can be found on our website, around the house and at your local craft store for just a few dollars.
Depending on who you’re giving your seed starting kit to, there are endless themes to choose from. The four kits we made were:
Easy Pollinator Garden: Featuring our Bee Happy, Let’s Grow A Butterfly Garden, and Feed The Bees Seed Packets.
Valentine’s Day Garden: Featuring our Love Is All You Seed, Let Love Grow, and Cosmos Seed Packets.
My First Garden: Featuring our Little Sprouts, My First Garden, Zinnia, and Sunflower Packets.
Easy Veggie & Herb Garden: Featuring our Basil, Parsley, Tomato, and Cucumber Seed Packets.
Once you’ve figured out the themes you want to use and have your seed packets in hand, simply follow these steps to make your Seed Starting Kit:
1. Cut a full sized egg carton in half using a serrated knife. Clean up any rough edges with a pair of scissors.
2. Fill ziploc bags about ⅓ to ½ full of seed starting soil.
3. Write the name of your garden on a tag that will go on the outside of the kit and on a notecard for inside. Add any growing instructions you’d like on the note card (although our packets do have instructions on the back). Decorate these with stickers, colorful writing, and more. Have fun!
4. Place your soil bag inside the egg carton with the notecard and seed packets. Close the carton.
5. Use ribbon or twine to wrap a bow around the closed kit and don’t forget to include your handwritten tag.
6. Decorate with stickers or however you’d like to get creative.
7. Give to your lucky friend, neighbor, significant other, or child to start their own seeds.
Using the kit is as easy as it looks — simply fill each cell of the carton with seed starting mix, sprinkle 2-3 seeds per cell and spray with a water bottle. Place this in a warm, sunny spot in your home and keep moist. Once there’s no more threat of frost in the spring, cut the cells apart and place each one directly in the ground (egg carton and all). Provide supplemental water regularly until sprouts have reached a few inches in height.
