Sprouting!!!
I’m so excited! I see sprouts! I do not have a green thumb! These kits make it so easy for me to share and teach growing our own foods with my son. We also love the tomato plant kit! The original kit I was gifted didn’t grow. I reached out to the team here and they sent a replacement! So far, it’s looking good! Exercise customer service! Awesome hands on kits!

    Really an awesome kit! 30 days in, my cilantro and basil are going strong. Got the first signs of green peeking up out of the soil on day 9-10. I'm so excited to make a first harvest, probably in just a few weeks' more time. Mint never grew, but I was able to transplant an extra basil plant into it (during thinning, as there's max. 3 basil/mint plants allowed per can) and it's starting to grow in that can, so I'm not upset. Since I'm a tough critic, I'm subtracting 1 star for that and for the fertilizer choice: in very small letters (boo) on the outer box, it notes that in the cans are any of a number of natural fertilizers, including bat guano and cow manure. I'd have appreciated a shorter list and the information being on the listing and more prominent on the box. Watering is simple with a teaspoon and tablespoon measurer, but you need to consider light before you purchase these. I'm in an apartment building in New York and have north-facing sunlight exposure for ~2 hours/day and south-facing sunlight exposure for ~5 hours/day right now, resulting in about 7 hours of direct windowsill sunlight exposure on these herb babies every sunny day (which has been about 2/3 of days here). It's _just_ enough, supplemented by some direct light from a 60W equiv. Philips LED about a foot above a few hours a day. It's not an ideal grow light; if I had any less sunlight than I do now, I'd need a proper LED grow light about 6 inches above these herbs. It's a lot of work moving them between sides of the apartment and along the windowsill to get the most possible sunlight, but it's worth it for me. If you don't have enough light, your herbs will not grow. Make sure to have your lighting all set before you plant the seeds! Back to the Roots sells a grow light on their website; there are many LED options designed to be grow lights and some CFLs will work too, plus you'll need a fixture that can hold the bulb and get it nice and close to the herbs. Growing from seed is harder and requires more light than growing from seedling, as with a bit too little light you'll get "leggy" plants that are weak from stretching too much towards the light. All that said, I'm really happy with this seed growing kit; it was my first time growing anything indoors and it's made me want to grow more things :) Pictured: herbs 30 days after planting. tl;dr: awesome herb kit, just make sure you have *plenty of light* on your windowsill or the dedication required to get your herb babies enough by moving them from room-to-room and setting up a grow light situation.

        Back to the Roots. Basil, Cilantro and Mint Herb Garden. The three pack kit says 100% guaranteed to grow. I really enjoy the idea of having fresh herbs for my cooking. I received mine 15 day ago and was very excited. After following instructions on planting the seeds, placing in sunny window and watering two tablespoons each day for 7-14 days all I have is wet soil. I have great house plants so not sure what I did wrong. I plan to try again.

        I really hope this grows! The set is a perfect little size for windowsills, and would make a great housewarming gift. Everything you need is in the box. Comes with three paint can type containers, each a little larger than a quart, and everything else you need, from dirt to seeds. It actually uses biochar, which is supposed to prevent over watering, and the whole thing is 100% guaranteed to grow, so it's worth a shot! Comes with a little adult coloring book/recipe book/instructions, which is fun. Everything looks just as it does in the pictures on the box. Our daughter is going to be in charge of these plants, since we do a lot of gardening. Personally, I love that it comes with mint, basil, and cilantro. I'm one of the people that thinks that cilantro tastes like soap, so I never have it on hand, so everyone else will be glad to get their hands on some. A nice little variety that most adults would use, so it'a nice selection. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because it hasn't grown yet, but it's early, and like I mentioned, it has a guarantee on the box, so I would assume it'll be taken care of if they don't.

              Cilantro eventually bloomed with only two plants then died. Basil and mint never bloomed. I have several other plants and herbs, peppers etc. growing quite well.

                  These seeds didn't sprout but I love the company and my tomato plant. I have several long tomato sprouts now so the herb can kit didn't work but the tomatoes are going to be lovely =) I'll order another one and post a video of the tomato plant with a 5☆ review for it soon!

                          Easy to use, great instructions, everything you need to grow something! 4 stars because only the cilantro took root. I reused the dirt, though.

                            Great service, subpar product
                            I bought a few of these kits when I saw these in the store excited to try my hand at gardening. The 100% growth guarantee had me looking forward to a mini garden in no time. Unfortunately, although I followed all the instruction to a 'T', I had no success. The customer service was great, but the product itself just didn't work. I even tried to start a few seeds using the paper towel method, but no sprouts except for a few from the basil before it quickly died once carefully transplanted to the provided soil.

                              I notified the company after 3 weeks of not even-1- Seedling showed me they were in there. After all this time ,A rep stated they would replace the purchase. That was after I hounded them ,sent pictures and grew very disgruntled . I was going to call Home Depot about the company. But we shall see !!!!

                              I was very very disappointed that when my kit arrived, all that was inside were the cilantro seeds and the basil seeds. There was no packet for the mint which is what I wanted most. I still got the three pots. I will see if what I DID get grows, but in the meantime, I will not recommend the high cost of this kit if there is no guarantee that all the ingredients promised are there. Sorry I purchased.

                                        Only two of the spouted, the third never did. Out of the two one grew a bit, but not enough to actually harvest anything, there was one lonely little stalk. Our water pod aquarium from the same makers was great, but sadly this product was not worth it.
