Autumn is the time to collect acorns and if you are wanting to witness the early stages in the growth cycle of an acorn tree, the Acorn Vase will enable you to do just that with one of the acorns you’ve collected.
The beautifully designed Acorn Vase, made from borosilicate glass, is shaped like a dome with a small funnel opening at the top where you can slot in an acorn and watch it sprout roots and leaves from the comfort of your own home. The glass gives a magnifying effect for your viewing of the growing process.
The oakling, a young oak tree, can thrive for up to one year in the vase, receiving essential nutrients from the acorn. Once matured, the oakling can be replanted outside and the vase reused for a new acorn.
The Acorn Vase, designed by Ilex Studio, makes a perfect gift for nature lovers. It also offers an inspiring way to help nurture children’s connection to nature, and to assist those who want to work with the magickal powers of oak to tune in to the mighty oak’s wisdom.
In line with preserving the environment, The Acorn vase’s packaging and accompanying handbook are printed on recycled card and paper.
The Acorn Vase, RRP £25 is available to purchase online from Ilex Studio
