The Greener Thumb

Summer’s not over yet and even as we all try to squeeze in a few more long sunny weekends, we can relax knowing it’s never too late to get a start on that garden we’ve been meaning to grow. Throw a backyard soiree serving up fresh veggies and herbs cultivated in your own home. Give your house a deluxe yet earthy look with a new butterfly garden blooming in your windowsill. Even escape the heat under the shade of a redwood seeded by your own hand. Creating a stunning household aesthetic, finally sprouting your dream garden, and harvesting healthy, organic produce year-round is made possible from Potting Shed Creations, the award winner of the 2013 GreenRetailer Magazine Eco Choice for most sellable product. Requiring only sunlight, water, and care, the entire line of seed/pot/nutrient products from the eco-friendly luxury company provides an outlet for those desiring natural design and modern style in their homes.

All seeds are certified organic and all packaging is entirely natural and sustainable. Growing containers are constructed either with coconut husks, biodegradable rice hull, recycled steel, and upcycled wine bottles for a simple, classy look. Whether a windowsill box, glass terrarium, or bamboo box, each product includes Potting Shed Creations’ authentic “soil-less growing medium”, recycled glass pebbles to filter water, and growing instructions for each individual seed type.

Tomato Pail

Potting Shed Creations pots and box sets allow the growth of mint, chive, basil, oregano, and other herbs, a variety of fruits and vegetables like tomatoes and strawberries, mosses, spices, and even trees that can grow indoors or outdoors. A kid-themed line offers the opportunity to teach your child at a young age the joy of growing flowers and edibles, giving them a deep-seeded connection and appreciation for nature and sustainability. There’s even a pet inspired line to grow catnip and barley/wheat grasses to keep the dogs happy, too. Seed combinations and potting designs can be custom-made to cater to your special event or thoughtful gift, and the company offers a fund-raising program where you keep 50% of profits for your cause.

Herbal Kitchen

We fell in love with Potting Shed Creations at first sight because of the stunning look of the pots and boxes. When we found out the product line was also a way to garden with ease any time of year, we were totally enamored. Our favorite products include the Pocket Garden, which comes with the fixings for growing a gourmet salad of greens, purple onions, pencil carrots, and miniature tomatoes all in one tiny canister to be planted in the variety of pot options, and the bonsai boxes, where the gorgeous, colorful trees can be personally shaped and add a noticeable touch of nature and luxury inside or outside your home.
