Looking for some eco-friendly stocking fillers to encourage family members or friends to learn to grow their own produce and be self-sufficient? Growbars will do just that.
Growbars are easy to grow, seed collections, nestled in fertile coir bars – a sustainable alternative to peat that’s made with coconut fibres – carefully created and packaged by a South London-based team.
The collection of Growbars includes seeds that will grow hot chilli peppers, healing herbs, bird-friendly seed-bearing plants, catnip for a feline-friendly pot of herb, pizza herb mix, tomatoes and popcorn.
What looks like a chocolate bar, you unwrap the seeded bar and place it in a container so that it can expand, add water, tend to the seedlings as and when, watch them grow and then pot them.
Growbars are 100% eco-friendly, including the packaging. The card packaging can be widely recycled, while the film wrap is made from biodegradable sugar cane.
