On the seventh day of Oxmas my true love sent to me 

Seven Grow Your Own Trees… 

♪  ♫   ♪

This gift is the perfect stocking filler and makes a great unique present this festive season! It can even fit inside a Christmas card!

It is made by SeedCell, a British company who believes in making gardening easy and accessible for everyone.

hjkjgxwwThe packaging is natural and designed and manufactured in the UK. It is made of natural pulp material which will absorb any ground moisture once planted. As you water your seeds, it will help deliver a steady feed directly to the seed without over watering it and aiding the germination process and continuing to provide vital water to the newly emerging seedlings beneath the soil. 

The pulp made from recycled materials, like paper pulp. All of the ingredients and components have been properly tested and are kind to the soil they are planted in.


How to grow it:

1) Use cutting compost or good quality soil in a pot with good drainage. Push the cell into soil point down, ensure the cell is fully covered with 2cm of soil.

2) Water, keep the soil moist and maintained through growing and do not over water.

3) …watch it grow into your very own little Christmas tree!

So just come to Oxfam Books Petergate and buy your Grow Your Tree!
