The Brabantia Regrow Kit is a 2-part set: it has two, different-sized glass bowls and matching floating rings for you to place vegetable or herb leftovers in. We decided to give the spring onion scrap a chance, but you could also try celery, cabbage, bok choi, beetroot, swede, Romaine lettuce, leek, spring onion, lemon grass, avocado stones, garlic cloves, and carrot and turnip tops (the green parts).
All you need to do is fill whichever size bowl you wish to use halfway up with water. You then pop the floating ring in it, along with your vegetable or herb scrap. That's it. After that there's nothing else you need to do, other than test your patience whilst watching the home-grown vegetable or herb grow, day by day.
"I'll never become a seasoned gardener, but saying that, I felt surprisingly satisfied."
Want to hear the best news? There's no need to be afraid you'll kill off your home-grown vegetables and herbs. Thanks to the floating rings your 'crop' will always get the perfect amount of water. Phew. Following a successful experiment with our spring onion, my friend and I decided to inject new life into a lettuce, using the Regrow Kit. That was a success too! See the result below:
