The Hortus Focus box, a gardening box for refined city dwellers

Passionate about gardening, Isabelle Vauconsant and Isabelle Morand launched in November 2016 their start-up, Hortus Focus, to allow city dwellers to cultivate their little corner of greenery without taking the lead. Available individually or by subscription (monthly or quarterly), the Hortus Boxes offer an assortment of organic seeds and gardening accessories, all accompanied by an educational booklet that makes you want to get started right away! In the "Crunchy Crunchy" box, 23.5 x 24 cm cardboard box, we have the pleasure of discovering: * three sachets of organic seeds (Organic semen): Milan turnips, Cretan mixed greens, 18-day radishes . * a mini-greenhouse with its small bag of compressed potting soil ready for use. * a plastic seed drill (Nortene brand, diameter 6 cm). * a 12-page booklet, colorful and educational, to learn all about spring vegetables, seedlings of mixed greens, radishes and turnips. As a bonus, a recipe for rice leaf rolls and the mini greenhouse instructions. Examples of boxes: Hortus Focus offers both boxes for adults and for children. By the unit, we love the boxes "Happy tomatoes", "Flower meadows", "Detox" (to sow before making your own herbal teas), "Love, love, love" (with a Hoya kerrii) or even "Orchids" (bulb, glass vase, vintage sprayer and chocolate bar). For budding gardeners, we love the "Butterflies", "Vegetables in celebration" and "Fantastic plants" boxes with a Jericho rose! WE love : At the opening of the box, accessories and small decorative gifts delight neophyte gardeners who do not necessarily fall in swoon in front of a bag of seeds. These small objects and the educational notebook really encourage you to learn about the joys of gardening.
