Believe it or not, it’s true-we can actually start thinking about our gardens! Veggie, flower, acre, or window, these sellers have something for everyone. So dig in, folks, because the weather is warming, the seeds can be starting, and before you know it we’ll be outside with our feet up, enjoying the fruits of our labor (and ignoring the weeds)!
Organic Mixed Cosmo Heirloom Seeds, Homegrown and Hand Harvested, in homemade envelopes by TheLittleRagamuffin. $3. You can garden handmade right from the get go, and heirloom seeds are the way to do it. Homegrown and hand harvested, these organic seeds will beautify your garden and populate your world with gorgeous cosmos to boot. That, my friends, is the wonder of gardening, and worth celebrating.
Eco-Friendly Cedar Garden & Seed Tray by prettysimpleshoppe. $24. Start your season off right with this eco-friendly seed tray! Sturdier (and earth friendlier) than those plastic trays you buy in big box stores, this will keep your seedlings safe and cozy until the weather warms up just a bit more and they can head outside. Oh, it won’t look half bad sitting in the sun while you wait, either.
Gardening Paper Pot Maker by WoodElements. $25. Seriously, what could be cooler than this? Declare yourself free of the enslavement of premade and preprocessed seed trays and starter pods! Get those newspapers out of the recycle bin and put them to work with this awesome pot maker. Your seeds, your garden, and your earth will thank you-plus, you get extra bonus points for being so DIY. Score.
Spring Garden Apron in Organic Cotton Twill Floral Print by SoulRole. $45. Okay, let’s be serious for a minute: digging in the dirt is fun and all that, but let’s not forget that we all have neighbors to impress. This organic cotton garden apron will do just that-and keep your tools, your gloves, and all your other necessities right at hand. You might be covered from head to toe in mud and compost, but darn it, you’ll still look good.
koi by mudstuff. $27. You may not have a koi pond in your back yard, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have koi. We’re totally imagining one or two of these nestled in a rock garden surrounded by lots of moss…hmm, actually, maybe we’ll just have to get to work on that, because frankly, that’d be awesome. So, you know, if you buy these (and steal our idea), we totally want credit. Just sayin’.
Mason Jar Solar Light Half Gallon Vintage Jar by treasureagain. $31.50. Mason Jar? Check. Solar light? Double check. COOLEST PATIO OR GARDEN LIGHT ON THE BLOCK? MOST DEF. We love Mason jars as a matter of course, but the utter brilliance of attaching these nifty solar lights to the caps (note: have jars of your own? You’re in luck: treasureagain sells the plain solar lids too!) just blows us away. Super. Cool.
The Witch’s House-A Fairytale Toad House by PoFu. $45. Every gardener knows that toads are handy to have hanging out on your plot of earth. They eat all those nasty, plant harming bugs, and darn it-they deserve a totally sweet house to make them stick around…and this one is one of the neatest we’ve seen. Toad or no toad, this baby is totally display worthy-and we have a feeling that the “for rent” sign won’t be out too long.
