Growums Garden Kits Review and Giveaway

I entered a giveaway a while back to win a garden kit from Growums. Unfortunately, I didn't win that giveaway. However, I contacted the company and was given the opportunity to review one of their garden kits and they agreed to allow me to offer a giveaway to my readers.

Add a Little Character To Your Garden

I loved the look of these little kits and the website looked so educational, which as a homeschooling family was a great plus. After we received our Herb Garden Kit I was able to really see how great these little kits and the website are. Part of me had wanted a Taco Garden or a Pizza Garden, but I was so thankful that I received an Herb Garden, because at this time of year living in Pennsylvania I am not going to be planting our plants outside. (I believe we will be ordering a Pizza and/or Taco Garden kit in the spring.) There are six different gardens you can choose from:
Pizza Garden
Taco Garden
Herb Garden
Salad Garden
Stir Fry Garden
Ratatouille Garden
You can check them out at the Growums site.

Growums are made for children to grow there very own gardens.
Here is a little snippet from the Parents page:
"What makes the Growums program so special is that it combines learning and fun in the real garden with an exciting, educational online experience. So as the children’s real gardens grow, so will the Growums virtual world. It’s easy for kids to enter this enchanted land, where their vegetables come to life for both fun and learning. The Growums family will teach you and your children how to grow vegetables and herbs until harvest. They will tell you when and how to start, transplant and care for your plants all the way from beginning to end. Soon there will be an entire world of fun and Growums games to play, with points and prizes to win."
We were excited to begin.
They arrive with everything you need to start (except a dish to place them in and the water of course):


The simple instructions are printed on the container. We placed the coco pellets in a pie plate:



And added water. Can you tell Amelia was amazed watching the coco pellets expand:


Then the seeds were planted, the tags added and the pie plate placed on the stand by the sunny window.
While we waited for our Growums to grow the girls enjoyed their time on the Growums website. We registered our garden and were given our first lesson on how to take care of it. And we met the Growums characters and were able to play some fun games. It was all I imagined and more.

The girls took turns checking the pie plate for water and were excited to add water on their turn.

Nine days later we were treated to some tiny spouts.


And a couple of weeks later:



The girls are enjoying their experience with Growums. I figured they would as they love helping in the garden and discovering tiny plants/vegetables growing.  If you would like to give your child this exciting experience you can purchase their Gardens at their website store. You can also check out their great Fund Raising Opportunities. And you can enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below.
