I'm new to gardening. How do I start?
- Find a sunny spot around your house
- Buy a Planty and some seeds, as cheap as €25. We send you a box with everything you need
- Install the Planty.io app and follow the instructions
How many Plantys do I need to start?
Want to harvest different herbs and veggies for your salads/dishes from the start? Four should do. You also get a 25% discount so the fourth is on us :-)
Want to open a salad bar straight away? 100 Plantys.
Can I grow indoors?
Can't I just grow in ordinary pots with regular soil?
Read here why our mix and the material of the growbag are so important and make all the difference.
Plus: for some weird reason, most gardening products are not environmentally friendly at all. So if that's important to you: Planty is your best bet.
How much will I harvest from 1 Planty?
But it’s not just about the harvest. Most of all, you’ll gain stress-relief and fun.
Is it too late / early in the year to start?
I live in a weird location - will it work for me?
I'm horrible with plants, can I do this?
How are Plantys going to improve my life?
Plus: science says gardening is beneficial for your physical and mental health. So yah.
I don't have any space with sunlight - can I still grow with Planty?
If you can’t find it at home, ask your workplace if you can put them there. Everyone will love it.
But if you really can’t find a spot with sunlight, then no: you can’t grow with Planty. Sorry. (Or consider moving to another place :P)
Why are there only 12 seeds I can choose from?
What's included in a Planty kit?

All you need to start growing is some seeds, which you can find in our shop.
How eco-friendly is it?
Do I need any additional products other than a Planty + seeds?
How good is your soil-mix?
What is your soil made of?
Are the seeds completely natural?
What is the growbag made of?
What is the packaging made of?
The only item in the box that is not recycled is the packaging of the soil mix. We are looking for a fully recycled material that can contain our soil's property, but for now, we use a PP2 material which is fully recyclable.
Can I recycle the packaging?
What is the Planty.io App?
Even if you normally kill plants, the Planty app will guide you from seed to harvest. It takes all the guesswork out of gardening and lets you water, sow and do plant-specific tasks based on their current lifecycle. Easy, fun and in just minutes a day.

I'm basically a plant-whisperer; I don't need this app, right?
