At ēdn we're evolving the way nature and technology can come together to make the magic of growing plants a simple, easy, and sustainable part of modern life. We're on a mission to help more people #BringNatureInside, and it all starts with the SmallGarden!
We've designed the SmallGarden to enable everyone to grow fresh herbs, vegetables, and flowers, regardless of your time, space, expertise, or the season. For the absolute best experience with your SmallGarden, check out the below tips before getting started:
Your SmallGarden can live anywhere indoors with a level surface, access to a power outlet, and WiFi connectivity. The SmallGarden doesn't need any sunlight, the custom LEDs take care of all the light your plants' need. We recommend placing your garden somewhere that you'll see every day so you can enjoy your plants and see their progress.
Some popular places for the SmallGarden include:
- Kitchen: Easy access to fresh, beautiful, herbs and vegetables.
- Office: Being around plants has shown to improve productivity by 7-8% - and it adds a bit of living art to your workspace
- Bathroom: Fresh-smelling flowers never hurt - also works well as a night light!
The SmallGarden can grow a variety of plants; from herbs like basil, thyme, and mint to vegetables like cherry tomatoes and bell peppers (we've even grown succulents and strawberries!). While the options are endless, we recommend starting with our SeedPods (like the basil SeedPods that came with your garden) before planting your own seeds in our Experimental SeedPods. If you want to experiment with varieties we don't offer, see this article for what to look for when buying seeds. Flowers provide a really exciting experience, as you get to see them develop and bloom!
Whether cooking for one or a group, there's nothing quite like cooking food you've grown. Consider planting some of our herbs or lettuce SeedPods to give your meal a SmallGarden-to-table flair.
Witnessing the beauty and progress of your garden is an amazing experience, and a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of nature and horticulture. Not only is this a great learning experience for you, but can also be used to teach kids about how plants grow, and can kickstart their personal connection with nature.
