Details. They're kind of important to me.🤓 It's the details that make our Mother's Day Tomato Growing Kits so incredibly special.
❤️ First, let's talk about the plants. 🌱 Tomato plants are typically categorized as Determinate or Indeterminate. I've special ordered a disease-resistant, non-GMO semi-Determinate plant variety, whose size suits the 10-gallon grow bag and is known for clusters of red medium-sized flavorful fruits.🍅
Sweet Basil. Not only does companion planting basil with tomatoes enhance flavor, but it also deters pests. I was particular about the variety of sweet basil chosen for this kit due to its beauty, flavor, and resistance to disease.😋 and 💪 The Marigolds. These are my favorite flowers. I've also chosen my favorite variety for this kit due to the vibrant multi-color hues and the flowers' ability to ward off hornworms but attract needed pollinators.🐝
Now - all the accoutrements (aka - the other stuff).✨ The Grow Bags. I experimented a lot with different sizes, materials, and companies. These experiences taught me a lot about the importance of quality. The grow bags chosen promote healthy root growth, and you can reuse them over and over and over again. Also - they're made in the USA. (To note - everything in this kit is made in the US and grown locally).👍
The "How To" Growing Guide and Kit Instructions. There's a LOT of tomato growing information out there, and I know how easy it is to get overwhelmed. The growing guide and instructions included in the kits are simple and SO doable. I want you (both experienced and novice gardeners) to succeed and feel confident - so that this grow kit makes you want to grow more.😊
Three 4' long Redwood Trellising Stakes. In the long run, I find it's better to splurge on this type of wooden stake due to Redwood's natural ability to be resistant to insects and decay.💪
The Extra Stuff (Notecard, Fertilizer, Extra Twine). It is all put together with thought to promote success and truly put a smile on your face (if you're gifting yourself) or brighten the day for someone you love.
