Looking for a holiday gift for the talented home cook in your family? The Chefs Herb Garden Collection is the answer.

You would think cooks are easy people to shop for, but after purchasing my mother every wacky kitchen gadget on the planet over the years, I’ve had to think out of the box. Fresh herb seeds are a great gift because they are beginner-friendly and greatly expand the flavor options from what you would typically find in a grocery store.

Containing every herb a chef could hope for in a kitchen, the seed collection packs a punch in flavor. And if you’re lucky, you may just get to taste some of the delicious food you helped create.

Microgreens Collection

      • Microgreens Ciao Bella Basil Blend Organic
      • Microgreens Jazzy Mix
      • Microgreens Mellow Blend
      • Microgreens Sunflower Organic
      • Microgreens Upland Cress

Microgreens have taken over the health and culinary worlds for good reason. These densely packed adorable leaves are nutritional marvels with incredible taste. If you believe ‘healthy’ food doesn’t always taste good, think again.

Microgreens are great for growing indoors and out, and you only need a small container to get started. This Black Friday, check out the Microgreens Collection. It contains a range of seeds ready for early harvesting, from basil to sunflower sprouts.

As a bonus, microgreens are also a great gift for the impatient gardeners in your life. There is no need to wait weeks or months to reap what you sow – the greens will be ready to trim in under 20 days.

Baby Greens Sampler Collection

Like microgreens, baby greens are evidence that dynamite comes in small packages. The bright and colorful leaves are packed with nutrients, quick to harvest, and incredibly versatile in the kitchen.

What sets baby greens apart is their size. The leaves are much larger than microgreens (although still smaller than traditional greens), working well as a base for salads or garnish in fresh sandwiches. You can also pop the leaves into a blender with your favorite fruit juice to make a green smoothie or simply chew on the fresh leaves as a snack.

The Baby Greens Sampler Collection contains a wide range of baby greens for variety in color, texture, and taste.

You might know someone interested in edible gardening but doesn’t have the space for a traditional outdoor vegetable garden. In these cases, the Container Vegetable Seed Collection is the perfect gift to get them on Black Friday.

So many edible plants can grow in pots, but not all varieties are as well suited for container growing. This usually comes down to size, so growers have developed compact cultivars of vegetable garden favorites, ensuring everyone can grow produce – no matter the space.

It’s also hard not to fall in love with tiny carrots, dwarf kale, and delicious pearls of cherry tomatoes. On second thought, I may want to avoid gifting and keep this collection for myself instead!

Watching a plant grow from a tiny seed into something on your plate is so exciting for kids of all ages. The Children’s Garden Collection comes with a range of weird and wonderful plants to keep your children active in the garden.

A few of the seeds included are essentials for snacking, such as sweet Little Finger Carrots and Rainbow Blend cherry tomatoes. Others provide excitement in the kitchen, like Strawberry popcorn that changes from strawberry red to white when popped or Royal Burgundy beans that turn green when they hit the pan.

This collection is fun for children and adults, bringing a sense of whimsy into the garden and the kitchen.

There is so much to love about herbal teas, from fresh and calming flavors to potential health benefits, depending on your chosen plants. Regular herbal tea drinkers will also know how much better tea tastes when the leaves or flowers are fresh or, even better, picked straight from the garden.

The Herbal Tea Collection combines a few tea garden essentials, from chamomile to echinacea. The best part of planting the entire collection is that you or the giftee can play around with different tea combinations, creating unique flavors that are impossible to find in stores.

If you have more leaves and flowers than you can use after planting, you also have the option to dry and store them in homemade tea bags. These make great gifts in themselves – the gift that keeps on giving.

On Black Friday, you can order these supportive seeds that have a big impact, whether you (or the intended recipient) have a tiny backyard or a massive one.

This Black Friday, pick up some seeds that support the bees! Supporting bee populations is a service to the environment, and active bees also improve the growth and yield of all the plants in our gardens. We really couldn’t live without them.

Classics like bee balm, borage, and anise hyssop are bee magnets that bring a guaranteed buzz to your garden. These flowers add both ornamental value and liveliness to your backyard to instantly uplift your spirits.

If you’re not planning on gifting the Bee Happy Seed Collection to yourself, consider gifting it to your neighbors this holiday season. Creating a green corridor will benefit all the local pollinators, extending to your backyard, too.

When growing edible plants for use in the kitchen, many ignore the benefits of edible flowers. These beauties are more than just looks – they add unique flavors and bright colors to any dish.

The Edible Flowers Collection is the ideal gift for chefs who love to experiment in the kitchen. My favorite ingredient to play with is nasturtium, using both the leaves and large flowers for their peppery zing. Battered and fried chive blossoms are also a winner when hosting.

All the additions also have other benefits in your garden, like attracting pollinators or other beneficial insects. Dot them around the garden to create an eye-catching edible landscape.

Cut flower gardens are no longer reserved for specialist growers with miles of space to work with. With a few feet of outdoor space or even a couple of large containers, anyone can start an abundant cut flower garden to bring the beauty of their blooms indoors.

It may seem like a specialized process, but many cut flowers are surprisingly easy to grow. This mix of annuals and perennials will delight anyone interested in creating their floral arrangements, from absolute beginners to experienced gardeners.

The combination of colors and textures in the Florist Cutting Flowers Collection provides infinite interest both in the garden and in bouquets.

Gardening can be a resource-intensive activity, especially when it comes to water. Those in areas with limited rainfall or no rainwater collection method often struggle, not to mention the environmental impact of high water usage.

Drought-tolerant plants are the answer. Thanks to their dry native habitats and strong root systems, these flowers can last much longer without additional water than more demanding flowering plants. The Drought-Tolerant Flower Collection features a few tough essentials, like Black-eyed Susan and Portulaca.

If you know any forgetful waterers, this seed collection also makes the perfect low-maintenance gift to pick up this Black Friday.

After putting so much effort into your garden, it’s understandable to want to enjoy it at all hours – not just when the sun is up. The Moon Garden Collection was made with nighttime gardens in mind, combining gorgeous flowers and foliage to catch the light and make your garden shine.

Along with white or silvery flowers, the collection also contains flowers that attract pollinators active at night, such as hawk moths. Combine this with the butterfly and bee collections to keep gardens bursting with life at all hours.

This collection can also double as a gift for gardeners with particular color palettes in mind. The all-white blooms complement any landscape, whether monochromatic or kaleidoscopic.

The final giftable seed collection is reserved for pet owners and cat owners in particular.

Cats and houseplants don’t always mix well, leading to plenty of messes (or, worse, an unexpected trip to the vet). To stop cats from interacting with houseplants they aren’t supposed to, why not get them their own houseplants to enjoy?

The Cat Lovers Collection contains the kitty staples: cat grass and catnip. You or your giftees feline friends will thank you for choosing this gift.

Final Thoughts

Seeds make a wonderful gift for gardeners at every level. These specialized collections also allow you to personalize your gift with a range of unique species to enjoy.
