What's included in the Planted Membership?
It's brand new! It's a membership service that is box subscription that features everything you need to learn how to grow and cook the healthiest, best tasting leafy greens and herbs in living soil at home! You'll receive specialty seedlings with organic living soil, and mini-planters along with tutorials and coaching to guide you throughout the year. Each month we interview experts who will inspire you on your healthy living journey.
You can choose between 6, 12, or 18 seedlings to receive monthly, every 2 months or quarterly - along with soil amendments and other supplies needed for projects. We also send you microgreens with each shipment and teach you how to grow fun surprises like tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and other fun items that come along.
We will feature planting projects that are tailored to the different seasons of the year. We'll plant some of the perennial herbs in the Fall and harvest them in the Spring. We'll grow herbs or microgreens in the cold months, and tomatoes and peppers in the summer months.
Whether you receive your box on a monthly, bi-monthly (every 2 months), or quarterly basis - you can still participate in the monthly programming that we provide for cooking classes, nutritional interviews and challenges, weekly yoga classes and mini-series, and weekly gardening training - plus the special bonus trainings we do throughout the year.
You'll be part of a private FB Planted Community where we go live frequently to teach trainings, post tips, share successes, and feature our online classes with our Planted Live partners.
What if I have never gardened before? How easy is it?
- We teach you every step along the way!
- We make it easy and fun with instructions, videos, weekly tips, and a private Facebook community.
- Each month you will receive new plants and learn how to grow them and use them in your cooking.
How much space does it take and where can I put the planters?
The grow pots are 5.5" diameter - so they're small. You choose what you want to receive - 6, 12, or 18 total grow pots (because we will be replenishing seedlings often in the same pots). Throughout the year, we'll give you an opportunity to grow in larger pots for growing tomatoes, root vegetables, and vines. The larger grow pots will be at most 24" diameter.
The planters will drain through the felt so it will need to be placed somewhere where it can drain when you water it. Think of this as container gardening. You may place these on a deck, on a patio table, on the ground, etc. You can move them around throughout the year to optimize the sunlight.
You can start out with the Planted Wall to showcase your organic seedlings or grow into it as you get more comfortable. The Planted Wall automates the watering and is on wheels so it moves around easily and is a beautiful piece of artwork for your back deck or patio!
What's the return/refund policy?
As our Planted subscription includes living plants, we offer replacements if they are damaged in any way.
Can I grow year round?
YES! We grow with the seasons. That means we work with growers to provide the organic seedlings that will thrive during the different seasons of the year.
The Planted subscription is intended for growing outdoors. The ideal location is a spot that gets at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
If you live in a location where the temperatures dip below freezing, then you will want to wait until night time temperatures are in the 40's consistently. On the occasional dips into the 30's you can cover with a sheet or bring them indoors for that time period. The breeze is good for plants and helps to keep bugs at bay so growing outdoors is optimal.
You can pause your subscription at anytime or skip shipments if you're traveling for extended periods of time or the rough winter season gets in the way.
