Herbs are a crucial part of cooking and can take your meals to a whole new level. While many people opt to add herbs to their weekly grocery list, some have taken to gardening and growing their own plants. However, gardening can be daunting if you don’t have the time, the space, or desire to break out your tools and work boots. Luckily, Target is now selling tiny terracottas that will allow you to grow fresh herbs without getting down in the dirt.

The growing kits come in either basil, cilantro, or mint, and are decked out with everything you need to start cultivation for $12.99 a piece. Already equipped with seedlings, just add water and set the pot in a windowsill that gets a lot of sun. Plus, each pot has built-in drainage that will help you not overwater, all the seeds are non-GMO, and each plant yields six months’ worth of fresh herbs.

Reviewers are raving over the product and some even mentioned it’s a wonderful gift for the chef in your life. “These little terracotta kits are so cute and so fun,” wrote one commenter. “They come with everything you need to start growing. They are nicely made and the instructions are easy to follow. These would be great for young kids or beginner growers.”

Imagine having fresh cilantro to garnish your tortillas on taco night, newly harvested mint for your tea or salads, and crisp basil to decorate your steaming bowl of pasta. Nothing beats garden-fresh, plus, growing your own herbs is more sustainable than buying from the grocery store. Not to mention, the thrill of watching a plant grow from start to finish is truly unmatched.
