GrowJourney is a monthly seed subscription service. Every month you will receive 5 packets of organic, heirloom seeds that are appropriate to grow for the current season. You will also get access to online grow guides, seed information, and more. The subscription is $14.99 a month for the Large Garden Plan (5 seed packets), $9.99 a month for the Small Garden Plan (3 seed packets), with discounts available on 6 and 12-month subscription plans.

There was a welcome letter that explained how GrowJourney works and I was happy to see that my seeds could be used year after year, and did not need to be planted all at once.

GrowJourney sent an envelope which you can fill with seeds. There’s also a unique invitation code you can pass along to a friend who might be interested in starting their own gardening adventure. If your friend uses your link you will earn $5, which can be put towards your subscription fee or to buy products in the online shop.

I am reviewing the Large Garden Subscription. I received 5 packets and each one says it can be planted in the fall, winter, or spring. This month the seeds had a theme – Garden Fairy Tale!

My parents grew mustard greens so I am looking forward to sauteing these as a side dish to remind me of home.

I really don’t have a place to start my seeds indoors so I will sow these tomato seeds directly after the last projected frost date, which is early March here in Central Texas.

I grew up in a state that has a beautiful golden poppy as the state flower! I will plant these groovy poppies on the perimeter of my garden in the hopes that it will draw beneficial insects. Plus, the seeds can be used for cooking with no trippy side effects!

I love the fact that you can plant radishes and have a tasty salad ingredient just 3-4 weeks later. Radishes are one of my favorite vegetables and I can’t wait to give this variety a try.

Mâche is a tender salad green that’s also known as lamb’s lettuce and I don’t think I have ever tried it before. I love salads and there is something extra satisfying about making one using produce you have grown yourself!

The subscription comes with online access to the GrowGuide, which gives in-depth info on different plant varieties.

You can click on one of the varieties you received and have all the info at your fingertips. It also lists all the seeds you have received so you can reference it quickly!

The QuickGuide gives info on how to start your seeds indoors or out and lists other helpful growing info such as companion plants, days to germination, and how to care for your new plants.

After I received October’s seeds I started bag gardening. I cut slits in the bottom of the bags of topsoil my husband bought, then cut out a large rectangle in the top and planted my seeds. The weather has been pretty hot until recently so that may have slowed the growth but it looks like a great head start!

I feel like the value for GrowJourney is worth it since you not only receive the seeds but helpful online info as well. Plus, the varieties I received are unique or in some cases offer a twist on the usual offerings.

Do you grow your own food? If so, let me know which method works best for you!
