The sponges look like dirt... feel like dirt... But they aren't dirt.
We do get six seed packets to choose from: Basil, Chives, Cilantro, Dill, Marjoram, and Parsley (curly, not flat). The instructions tell us that we can transfer the herbs to the ground once they grow, but living in NYC without a garden, our herbs are destined to live out their days rooted in the sponge. We're not sure how we feel about that, but seeing as we grow alfalfa sprouts in a jar, we're game for anything.
Anyone had experience with the Chia Herb Garden?
