Bloomin’ Bin Review
I received the mentioned products in this post from Bloomin’ Bin in exchange for an honest review. The opinions in the post contain opinions that are mine and may vary from the opinions of others.
About Bloomin’ Bin: A subscription box for those that enjoy gardening or are just starting out. Whether you want to try to grow something off season or in a container, or you want to follow normal planting schedules, we have the box for you! A basic box includes enough seeds, items, and knowledge to get started, and premium boxes offer projects to take you further!
What We Thought: I love gardening and when I got this Bloomin’ Bin box to review I was overly excited. Literally to the point that it wasn’t here an hour and I was digging in trying to figure out what was inside and the things we could grow.
This month’s bin contained 3 types of beans, 2 that I had never heard of before so that made the excitement even bigger!
I want to make it a point to say that literally you get everything you need in the package to start growing things, including these awesome BioBags that I had never used before, but wanted to give a try.
Starting with the paper towels provided (yes they even give those!!) and the seeds. I decided to try several bean seeds in each bag and that was really easy to do. The only thing I had to have was a spray bottle and water, which I am sure you could get away with not using the spray bottle, but it is the method I prefer with gardening.
Here is a photo provided from Bloomin’ Bin because I got way too excited for my box and didn’t snap a picture right away:
I LOVE the packaging design of this box and while I typically do not get very excited about subscription boxes I feel this one literally has what is needed to keep customers like myself coming back.
I have to say that the luck I had with my beans was not the best, but I contribute that to the weather we have had here in Virginia. I got amazing sprouts from the seeds provided and know that they are high quality, but the conditions we have had here were just not optimal for good growth. We literally went from very cool weather to blistering heat overnight and any gardener knows that is not a good way to get anything to grow.
Bloomin’ Bin offers several selections for what type of box you get, including a container premium box which is what I got to review. I would select this one again given the opportunity because I feel you get more “bang for your buck” with it. $25.00 a month well spent in my opinion, but they also have other boxes starting at just $10.00 per month if you are looking to still garden, but have a tighter budget.
