Info & Instructions

Hello you Rays of Sunshine! Have you wondered what weird and wonderful plants you came home with?  Well look no further, we have put a small description together to help you discover what you are going to grow and eat this summer.  If you cannot determine what the plant is from the pictures below, plant it anyways and enjoy the mystery!

Generally, most herbs, vegetable or fruiting plants love sun and moist soil.  In a perfect world “full sun” conditions means +8 hrs sun. “Part sun” means about 4 hours.  Will your plants rebel against you if they do not get all 8 hours? No, but they may protest by deciding not to give you as many fruits.  However, if you plant a full sun herb in a deep dark corner under your deck – let’s just say it might not survive for too long.

Moist soil means that they generally enjoy a bit of water – not too much (aka. a swimming pool) and not too little (aka a desert)!  Water as required to ensure your green babies don’t shrivel up and lay down for a ‘long nap’ in your garden bed.  Don’t water so much that they start to turn yellow!
