The Mini Sunflower Garden (Mini Kit) Reviews
I agree with the prevous review. The same thing happened to me. I followed all the directions. If there were an option not to give it any stars I would have.
I got this kit from a friend and I just planted the seeds two weeks ago. As a first time planter, I'm very excited! 3 out of the 4 seeds sprouted and are growing really fast. The only thing the book did wrong was that it didn't tell you that you have to transplant them into a bigger pot with real soil after they get to a certain size. I think that's why they died on a lot of customers. The flowers run out of room to grow and having nothing left to do but die. I just transplanted them today and while it was really hard to get them out of the little container, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll thrive and produce flowers. So if they add that to the book, then more people would have more luck with them. Otherwise, I think it's a great little kit! I'm having a lot of fun!
This is a great kit. I was worried at first because the seeds were so small, but all four of them sprouted. The first one that sprouted died but that was my fault because I didn't give it enough sunshine. The book is really small and cute, with some good projects and some interesting history inside. The other three are doing very well, all of them sturdy and healthy. The only thing I recommend is to transplant them when they grow their second or third set of leaves. I recommend this kit to anyone, even people who claim to have 'no green thumb'. With a little tender care and love, a few minutes each day to take care of them, and plenty of sunshine, these little seeds will grow, grow, grow into little mini sunflowers!
I bought this kit entirely because I thought it would be fun to have some sunflowers to brighten up my bedroom. I wasn't originally interested in the book part, but I did read it because I had it, and it was pretty useless. I planted the sunflowers in the provided "pot", and followed all the directions. I watered it regularly and sat it next to the window every day. All the sunflowers died anyways, before flowering. The kit comes with exactly four seeds, and all grew into little seedlings, and then died at about the time that their second set of leaves came out. I'm not sure why, but this kit was definitely a disappointment!
Even though the last two people think it's terrible, I think it was pretty good. I LOVE sunflowers and I have grown tons before. This was like my 30th sunflower. I did everything they asked me to, watered it when the soil was dry, cared for it well and my work paid off. The sunflowers grew, bloomed and thrived. The only thing wrong is the book. I think its too small and short.
