We have been seeing a new trend around lately that we wanted to share with you: DIY plant kits. As we have mentioned before, we love house plants, and as a company that makes our products from scratch, we love anything that allows us to get hands-on. That’s what makes these DIY plant kits so unique and awesome! At the end of the day, you have herbs or veggies to use when you cook, or flowers to decorate your home or garden.
These DIY projects are a perfect activity to do at an outdoor summer party or with your children on a rainy day. They also make cute decor for your kitchen. Here are a few of the best planter kits that we have come across:
Modern Sprout makes some of our favorite DIY plant kits. Their packaging and branding is super cute, so your future plants can double as attractive kitchen decor. This specific seed starter kit comes in a pack of three which makes it the perfect gift. These eco seed kits make planting veggies super simple.

The most fun plant kit on this list has to be the Pizza Garden by Backyard Safari Company.
