matchbook of flowers

I just got my June newsletter from Rubber Soul and they mentioned these “Matchstick Gardens.”


They’re little matchbooks that have flower {cornflowers, shasta daisies, corn marigolds, or field poppies} or herb {basil, parsley, thyme, or chives} seeds on the tips. All you have to do is stick the tip in soil, water, and wait for them to grow! How cute is THAT?!

If my front steps {the only place I get a decent amount of sun} wasn’t already covered in terra cotta pots of herbs, I would be stopping at Rubber Soul to pick some of these up after work. I would probably go with the flower matchsticks since I already have so many herbs.

I might be able to squeeze on another pot or two on my steps… hm…
