I was really looking forward to receiving this product. A well packaged box arrived and I eagerly opened it up. When looking at the nottheusual.co.uk website, there were a number of different choices of the Grow It Kits to choose from but I was delighted to receive a sunflower kit. The box is a happy yellow colour and the only complaint I would have with it, is that bits fall out of it from the natural husk pots inside. The kit contains a mixture of dwarf and giant sunflowers, 5 pots to plant them in with expanding compost discs and markers to place inside the pot.
The kit also contains a booklet with tips and the explanation of what to do was easy to follow meaning you don’t have to be a gardener to get it right! The back of the packet also contains a sow by date so the seeds don’t go out of date. The product is of good quality and is of educational value as it can be used to show children how to grow their own flowers. They could even try and break the world record. As there are different grow it kits to choose from I think they would make great gifts for adults or children and I would consider purchasing one of these again for family or friends. The kits are worth the money and I would give it 4.5 out of 5.
