The Indoor Gardening Treat for Kids and Cats!

Mr Fothergill’s adds new faces to collectable children’s growing kits.

Mr Fothergill’s is adding to its popular children’s Munakuppi grow kit range with four new smiley face characters and four cool cats, creating a fun series of 14 collectable ceramic planters for bedroom windowsills, kitchens and offices.

Each supplied with two packets of seed and a soil pellet, young and young at heart gardeners have the option of growing long locks of rye grass or a short back and sides of fresh basil. Simply sow, water and watch the green hair grow.

The easy-grow varieties can be sown year round, making them ideal novelty gifts for birthdays and Christmas. They also prove popular as desk ornaments and make great secret Santa gifts for the office Christmas party.

The basil can be used fresh in the kitchen, while the rye grass can be offered to pet cats to aid their digestion – perfect for indoor moggies that don’t have access to fresh grass. If there are no cats in the home to keep growth in check, the rye grass hair can be tied into bunches or trimmed into style.

Unlike traditional grass heads, these ceramic characters can be used again and again. There is enough seed supplied with each character to replant and continue the fun many times over. When all seed is gone, you can add your own or use the ceramic pots as fun egg cup.

Each character is supplied with simple sowing instructions and growing tips. Available now at RRP £3.95. Visit your local garden centre to buy, or head over to
