If you’re short on space and don’t feel all that greenfingered, then here’s a solution that might work for you.
The Eggling is a great concept in easy plant growing that is suitable for all ages. It comes in a box and looks like an extra large egg, but when you crack the top of it with a spoon, you’ll discover soil and seeds planted below. All you need to do is get it watered and place the Eggling in a sunny spot on your windowsill.
We’ve grown several of the Eggling herbs before, but you can also get vegetable Egglings, such as red peppers, or fruits, such as the special wild strawberry. If edibles don’t do it for you, then there are lots of Eggling flowers to grow, or even a prickly cactus.
You don’t need fantastic gardening skills to make Egglings grow – other than watering, all the hard work is done for you – and you don’t need heaps of space either. They sit perfectly well on a windowsill and, as the herbs or vegetables grow, you can pick and use them as you please.
