Plant an Edible Garden This Summer With Bloomscape’s New Outdoor Herb and Vegetable Collection
Have you been itching to kickstart a garden this summer but aren’t quite sure where to start? Well, Detroit-based online plant delivery service Bloomscape is here to help. Last year, they launched an Indoor Herbs Kit that sold out within weeks of launching, so when we found out that they just added brand new Herbs + Veggies Bloom Kits to their outdoor collection, we had to share the news STAT. And the best part? The kits include every single thing you need to nurture your edible garden. All you have to do is put on your wide-brimmed hat and get digging.
Priced at $40, Bloomscape’s new Herbs + Veggies Bloom Kits are sold as a trio of plants and come in four delicious varieties. If you’re a big pasta or pesto fan, check out their Italian Herbs Kit, which features basil emerald towers, oregano, and rosemary. They also offer a Savory Herbs Kit — with fragrant sage, thyme, and chives plants — that’s perfect for Mediterranean food lovers. And if you prefer veggie-forward dishes, Bloomscape also makes a Sweet Pepper Kit that includes cubanelle pepper, green bell pepper, and sweet banana pepper plants. Use them for whipping up a delicious meal of stuffed bell peppers or even brightening up homemade pizza and salad.
Personally, I’m intrigued by their Heirloom Tomato Kit, which includes a Brandywine red tomato plant, a pineapple tomato plant, and a Black Krim tomato plant (a unique Russian variety that can turn black in the summer). Bloomscape also launched its own tomato cage to help support your tomatoes —or other veggies— as they grow.
The best part about shopping from Bloomscape is that these kits are super easy to grow since all of the plants come ready to be potted. Just keep in mind that the herbs and veggies require six to eight hours of direct sunlight daily, so you’ll want to pick a sunny patch to put them. While the plants are low maintenance and easy to care for, each kit includes detailed outdoor plant care instructions, an easy how-to guide for planting your blooms, and the first application of slow-release fertilizer. Plus, when you add a Bloom Kit to your cart, the website will even make tailored potting and soil recommendations, so you don’t need to worry about choosing the wrong container sizes or the incorrect amount of soil.
So if you’re ready to enjoy fresh, home-grown produce all summer long without becoming a full-time gardener, Bloomscape’s Bloom Kits are your best bet. And while you’re at it, snag another set for that loved one who’s rather proud of their green thumb!
