Birchbox Breakdown

One little box (seriously--it's 4 inches high and 3 inches wide) contains everything you need to sow and grow your own aromatic basil or spicy chili peppers.

How to Use

We could write a whole cookbook on basil, but for starters: Blitz it with pine nuts, garlic, Parmesan, and olive oil for pesto, or roughly chop it up with tomatoes and toss them both in a simple dressing. And did we mention pasta? The possibilities are equally endless for the chili peppers. Dice up your fresh chilies and toss into dips or entrées to add a touch of heat.

had a hard time growing

Still no basil....just a little green thing sticking out of the dirt. I thought it would grow faster.... and I thought I would get more buds

A tease
Purchased

I was super excited to start growing my own little basil and peppers in my apartment, since I have no outdoor space. I watered my plants religiously and kept them in direct sunlight. While they started growing, they stopped at a miniscule size. No peppers grew and the basil didn't even grow big enough to use. Novelty idea, didn't pan out.

Better than most
Purchased

I got this basil kit and followed the directions, and in just a few days there were tiny sprouts and I was well on my way to basil! It was looking a little sad in the window, though, so I put it on my front porch. It flourished until something knocked it over and ate the tiny leaves. Oh well! I'd try it again in the future and just refrain from moving it outdoors.
