I’ve seen egg cartons used for many things. Once, a friend and I used them to house mini-cupcakes before each was gobbled up. The latest egg carton-craze (well I think at least) are these compact and creative Sunny-Side Up Gardens by Backyard Safari Company. I saw these after attending the Independent Garden Center Show in Chicago (see our previous post about the gardening trends for 2012 that we came across).
These egg carton gardens are perfect projects for children. Each kit includes 6 packages of Heirloom & Organic Seeds, a coir fiber growing disk, wooden plant ID stakes, growing instructions, a growing journal, a pencil and 100% recycled fiber egg carton planter.
The best part? Each carton is themed to cater to your tastes! Here’s the breakdown:
