It’s the season for planting kits

Your hydroponic hanging garden

Arrange a garden of cuttings with the help of a coat stand. With hanging clear vases – or RIMFORSA tube-shaped glasses – it may well pass for a piece of art. Even better, you can follow the progress of your baby plants in fascinating detail.

A takeaway home garden

Make it super simple – let your miniature garden grow from the bag you brought it home in. Create a hanging planter using our sturdy, waterproof FRAKTA carrier bag. (Beware of leaking imitations.)

Nanosized greenhouses

Share the magic of seeing a plant sprout from a seed. Arrange a decorative plant nursery for the whole family by laying damp cotton balls and seeds of your choice – bean, pea or kernel – in taped-up plastic bags (made from renewable material).
