Letterbox-friendly Silly Greens review

Letterbox-friendly Silly Greens review

I’ve mentioned a few times that I love a subscription box. There’s something lovely about receiving mail that pampers you, entertains you or teaches you something new. I’ve tried a few over the years but was happy to discover Silly Greens who send live seed packs by post! I love my garden and this is always an exciting time of year. My windowsills are packed with seed trays and my sweet peas, runner beans and sunflowers are growing and I’ll soon be able to put them outside. Which meant I had plenty of room to try a gifted Silly Greens box.

Letterbox-friendly Silly Greens review

You’ve been able to buy plants through the post for years but Silly Greens present the ultimate way to grow your own greens in 2022. They send live seed packs by the post to give homegrown produce more potential. A direct to consumer veg box,  the only difference is that customers do part of the growing and the veg is micro.

The warmer weather reminds us of the potential of our window sills, window boxes and garden – what ever the shape of size everyone can grow something. I find it really satisfying to watch seeds grow and I love to nurture my plants at this time of year.

The letterbox-friendly boxes from Silly Greens double up as trays to grow your greens, and you’ll get three types per box. The box as it arrives, is ready to grow. Just watch them grow, remove the cardboard once the shoots start pushing it up, and cut the shoots with a pair of scissors when fully grown.

These can be added to soups, salads and sandwiches.  Once grown the boxes can be fully recycled and the natural seaweed-based jelly the greens root in can be composted.

    Ohh! This is something a little bit different. I am always in the mood for growing things at this time of the year and it sounds like there is a good selection to grow x
