The Growbar is made from coir - an Eco Friendly alternative to peat made from coconut fibre and comes in 100% recycled packaging. The seeds are added to the coir ready to create plants next summer.


Cucamelon - taste like cucumber but look like mini melons, and are the perfect addition to a G+T (Perennial)
Cape Gooseberry - has a sweet yet tart flavour and is excellent for compotes or baked treats. (Perennial)
Alpine Strawberry - may be smaller than regular strawberries, but they pack a flavourful punch. (Perennial)

To grow these plants start your Growbar between March and May.

Pour half a litre of water into the tray and position the Growbar indoors on a warm, bright windowsill. The seeds will need to be a cosy 18-22’C to germinate.

When the Growbar is nearly dry, gently pour water into the base the tray, not directly onto the bar as it may crumble. You can be sure your Growbar is perfectly moist if it remains the colour of a rich dark ginger cake!

After a few weeks you should have a bar neatly dotted with little seedlings. These will be happy growing together in the bar for a further month in their sunny location.

When the seedlings have produced 4-8 leaves you can then gently separate them, being careful not to damage the delicate roots, and plant them in a sunny weed-free spot in the garden. Plants grown in the ground with plenty of space and sunlight will flower most impressively, but it is possible to grow the seedlings in large containers on the balcony or patio.

Packaging dimensions: 24cm x 10.4cm x 1.5cm
