The Mint Seed Kit in Bamboo Container is a truly eco friendly solution for growing mint at home. The seed starters included in the kit are organic and can be grown inside with the provided growing medium without chemical pesticides or fertilizers. The growing container is handmade out of bamboo, a material prized for its durability, appearance and sustainability. Bamboo grows from seed to maturity in just 3 to 5 years, so its harvesting does not contribute to deforestation. Even the lid of the container is constructed from natural materials and has a non-toxic lacquer finish.
