Grow a Cocktail and Garnish Garden

If you’re intrigued by planting your very own cocktail and garnish garden, you can start with our Cocktail Pot Grow Kit. It’s an easy way to begin growing edible plants. The kit comes with certified organic seedlings (pre-grown starter plants), an organic amendment pack to boost your soil, a large premium felt pot and more. All you need to add is sun, soil and water.
