As much as staying at home is the socially responsible thing to do, there’s only that many Netflix shows you can binge. We get it, the trees and open spaces are calling out to you. But short of going out of your house, you can bring pockets of green to your home with these easy indoor gardening kits by local companies. And as an added bonus, after a couple of months, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Everything Green

Gardening requires patience; it takes time for the seed to germinate and grow. But for those who are impatient to see results, microgreens offer a faster alternative. These little seedlings are grown in small pots and harvested after two to four weeks, right when the plant bears leaves. Everything Green is the largest provider of organic microgreen seeds in Singapore, with different starter sets to kickstart your growing journey. The Microgreens Grow Bag ($7.90) takes all the fuss out of gardening: just unseal the bag, water, sow the seeds, and get ready to enjoy the nutritious crops.

Go Pasar

Think of Go Pasar as the Carousell for homegrown plants. Its founders, a group of five urban farmers, found that there was a lack of marketplace in Singapore for like-minded people to learn more about urban gardening and source for gardening supplies. From its listings, you can purchase a beginner-friendly Garden-nerd Grow Kit ($75), which comes with pots, seeds, fertiliser, gardening gloves, and seeds that supposedly come with a 90 to 95 percent seed germination rate. And if the harvest gets too bountiful, the website also has a section for urban farmers to barter, trade, or giveaway their harvest for others to share in the joy of Mother Nature.
