Great idea but doesnt work!

I bought and planted this product 2 months a go and despite planting them with the lid off as directed for the best results they still havent grown. They are in a big trough where I have also planted other herb plants that are thriving so its not the position. Really disappointed with this product.

Update: After two months still nothing

I received this for a review. I liked the idea and hoped it would workt. I planted the box, with lid removed to improve the chances, on 5 May and should be able to see the first seedlings within a few weeks, according to the instructions. It's now early July, and the area in my vegtrug where I've planted the box has nothing growing in it (except for some weed), while the trug otherwise is full of flowers. Other reviwers have had very good experiences, so my package must have been too old, because none of the seeds have germinated. Pity!

Herb growing made easy

Love this product! Its herbs in a box that you plant in its entirety in your garden (or planter if you dont have a garden). You dont have any faff - and you get fresh herbs! Ive taken a while to review because I wanted to see if even I can grow herbs - as I have the opposite of green fingers - and I am happy to say that the herbs and nature are doing their magic! Cant wait to be able to use them in my cooking. Really fun product to use as a first introduction to herb (or any) growing, as it appears to be fool proof... That said, Im aware that slugs/bugs/pestilence may yet get my crop (its happened before) but that wont be the fault of Mr Fothergill!

Time will tell

Well, it's a nice idea, but impossible to say much about it at the moment. Dead easy to plant, since the whole box just goes in the ground. And they're certainly herbs that I use plenty of, though I'm not sure if there's a big difference between the two kinds of basil. I've had trouble growing herbs in pots in the past, so something that promises to make the whole thing easy is welcome. But it's impossible to say much more until we see what comes up.

Seems such a good idea

Given this to review, loved the concept as herbs satisfying and easy to grow and this seemed a foolproof no mess, no waste way of doing it. Basil is my favourite herb so not bothered that there are two varieties of that. However, basil likes warm dry soil and chives and coriander like the damp so odd that they have been put together. Decided it would grow better in a planter rather than in the ground, but being a rectangular box hard work finding a suitable container - most herb planters being round or trough shaped. Once the lid has been removed, I would have liked some indication as to what seeds were where. Not enough time within review period to say whether they have been successful. Overall, a fun novelty way to start a herb garden but think round seed mats would have been more versatile.

Really easy to plant!

I put it in my friends garden 2 weeks ago and it was really easy to plant, just followed the instructions and put the box in the soil. Havent seen anything yet but Im hoping it will work very soon!
