Growums Review and Giveaway (Closed)

Spring is here!  In my house that means playing outdoors, mulching in my yard, planting flowers, vegetables, and herbs.  Well, I do plant flowers every year, but the thought of trying to grow my own vegetables and herbs is too overwhelming for me.  It never happens...until now.

Growums garden kits makes planting vegetables and herbs possible for me!  The best part of Growums is that is is specifically aimed at helping children learn how to grow and take care of their own plants and food.  According to the American Gardening Association, 98% of children who grow their own vegetables eat them.  That's amazing!

These all in one kits include everything you need.  You get seeds for 4 different herbs or vegetables, 8 Coco Pellets (pete pellets) to grow your seeds in, and 8 plant tags.  All you need is a shallow dish, some warm water, and a sunny window.  How can you really go wrong?

Mason helped me start the Herb Garden Kit.  And you know what, he loved every minute of creating his own garden!

Kids can choose from 6 different specifically-themed garden kits, including Herb Garden, Pizza Garden, Salad Garden, Stirfry Garden, Taco Garden, and Ratatouille Garden.  Once you choose your garden and plant the seeds, you can expect to start seeing sprouts within 10 days. 

Along with the garden kits you plant, you and your child can visit the virtual world at  There you can register your garden and meet animated characters like Elvis Parsley and Belle Peppa that will help to show you how to care for your vegetables.  Within a few weeks, you will be able to harvest fresh vegetable and herbs.  Kids will be eating nutritious meals that they helped to make.
