Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and everyone loves celebrating the day with their mom. Some of the simplest gifts I’ve received from my sons contain my most cherished memories. A simple handmade card with a crayon doodle, a baby shoe that is preserved for eternity in plaster are just a couple of my favorites. And yes I still have them and occasionally will get them out of my son’s memory boxes and get carried back to when they were babies. The lesson to be learned is that a gift doesn’t need to be big or extravagant. On the contrary, simple is always better like a herb growing kit from ALDI and a few tools to make gardening easier.
I grabbed everything I needed for this great gift for Mom at Aldi’s, there was so much to choose from. Now I could have just left the Herb Growing Kit in it’s box but I thought what a great idea it would be to give mom a growing garden. Let’s take a look at how quick and simple it was to put together.
Lay out all the parts, the stand, pots, seed packets and compressed soil tablets.
Place the soil tablets into a pan with the amount of water the directions specify.
And in just a couple of minutes they will soak up the water , expanding to where they are ready to be added to the pots.
Scatter the seeds on top of the soil and press into the top. Make sure they are covered with soil.
Tada, there you have it. Add the flower bulbs, gardening gloves and a couple of gardening tools for mom to the mix and you have a gift any mother would love to get.
