    Perfect gift



    Easy to assemble with my 6 year old daughter, and less than 2 weeks after planting* we can see roots! *under a grow light and sitting on heated seed mat



    I liked that the planter was clear and you could easily see the plant growing and mark it. I also liked that it came with multiple peas in case you needed to restart. I would suggest that you include in the booklet how long it will take for the pea to open (ex: approximately a week) that way you know that your plant still has hope of sprouting.



    It is very good and the seeds are very healthy. Enjoyed putting it together



    My 6 and 4 yo had so much fun watering their snap peas daily and observing it over the two or three weeks. We even got it to bloom and produce one pea pod!
