Deluxe starter kit made with bamboo

The total package: everything you need to start your Planty Garden in one go. It includes our super deluxe MM-Bamboo garden box. The bamboo maintains its quality - and beauty - for at least 20 years. The thick planks are sustainably sourced and have a warm wood color. 
 
This starter kit has everything included. Fill your MM-Bamboo garden box with the MM-Mix, sow your seeds, and you're ready. The free Planty Gardening app coaches you every step of the way. 
 
All parts of the Planty system work together. Our soil mix gives your plants exactly what they need, they have enough room to grow, and the seed varieties go great together. 
 
The result? An instantly successful small-scale garden. No stress, no fuss, no grumpy trips to the garden center because you're missing that one thing you forgot. We've thought of everything for you. 
 
With the starter kit, you do it right the first time. 
 
Plus: sustainably sourced bamboo helps to fight deforestation. Bamboo grows 10x faster than trees and the material also lasts much longer than hardwood.

That's good for you and the environment 🙂
What seeds does it come with?
This starter kit comes with the MM-Basis seed pack. Those are our essential seeds. You get 12 bags of 12 varieties: 
  • Lettuce
  • Arugola
  • Beetroot
  • Bush basil
  • Dino kale
  • Bibb lettuce
  • Sugarsnap
  • Spinach
  • Carrot
  • Chard
  • Marigold
  • Radish
These plants will grow every time, and they'll keep your garden full throughout the year. Plus: They're delicious. A perfect assortment to start with. 

Our app knows all about these varieties and guides you step-by-step from seed to harvest.
What else is included?
A deluxe MM-Bamboo garden box 60x120 cm
By far our most beautiful vegetable garden planter box. Made of thick bamboo planks and has a warm wood color. Stylish and sustainably sourced.

4 bags of 40L MM-Mix
This is the key to success: with this soil mix, your plants will grow like weeds 😉

1 package of superfood: MM-Plantfood
The MM-Mix lasts pretty much forever. It just needs some extra nutrients once in a while: that's the MM-Plantfood. This package will keep your soil rich and healthy for the next two years.

20 MM-Plantlabels + marker
After you've sown a patch, put a label on it right away. You don't want to forget what's under there. (You'll also put it to the app, but even then, trust me.)

Stainless steel trowel: MM-Schepje
A trowel is a great tool to have on hand. You won't use it so often, but when those moments come, you'll be happy to have it.
When can you start a Planty Garden?
You can set up a Planty Garden year-round. You only want to avoid sowing in December and January. Otherwise, you're good to go!

This garden box will last a long time. You set it up once: not just for the season, but for years to come.

The sooner you start, the more you'll harvest. And the more you'll enjoy it.
What's the best place for your Planty Garden?
Vegetables need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. So find a sunny spot for your garden box. 

Other than that, it can go anywhere: in your (front) yard, on your balcony, or (roof) terrace. We even know somebody who has a garden box on his boat.

Tip: The closer your Planty Garden is to your kitchen, the more you'll remember harvest. Think of it as an extension of your refrigerator 😉

Note: This garden box doesn't come with a bottom. It only has a weed mat for the base. So, if you have a balcony or terrace, you should check out our garden tables. These come with bottom plates, so the frame won't rest directly on your tiles or wood. Or try our MM-Mini grow bags to start small.
What's that grid and sowing system all about?
A Planty Garden is always divided into squares of 30x30 cm. That's for a good reason: each square patch is just the right size to maximize your harvest.

One square patch contains your choice of 16 radishes, 9 beets, 4 heads of lettuce, or 1 dino kale.

Grid and weed mat

We include a grid with your garden box to mark off each square plot. The grid is made of flexible, white plastic strips that you assemble into the signature crisscrossed shape.

The grid divides up each vegetable's territory: the radish patch is clearly separated from the lettuce patch.

The grid won't break down after years of sun and moisture. So it's more convenient than the wooden slats that come with other planter boxes and lasts longer than twigs or other temporary fixes.

We also include a weed mat. It prevents weeds from growing into the box from below.

Seeding System

Our app helps you sow just the right amount per patch, so you do everything right the first time. It covers:

  • the right time to sow
  • exactly enough space for each plant variety
  • from low to high
  • crop-rotation
  • harvesting early and often
  • staggered sowing
  • plant variation
How do you maintain a Planty Garden?
With a Planty Garden, you sow, water, check-in, and harvest for about 5 minutes a day.

Weeding or digging? No need

Skip the intense, time-consuming work a regular vegetable garden requires. 

In a Planty Garden, you sow exactly what you need in the right place at the right time.

What's left to do?

Only the fun stuff: sowing, taking care of your plants, and harvesting.

How do you do that? With the app 

The free Planty Gardening app is your personal vegetable gardening coach. It tells you exactly what, when, and how to maintain your vegetable garden. 

If something does go wrong - it's still nature we're talking about, after all - then the app will help you. Every time. Zero stress.

Even if you can't keep a houseplant alive, you can garden like a seasoned pro. Even a kid can do it.
Is it really worth it?
A Planty Garden yields 5x as much per square meter compared to a regular vegetable garden grown in rows and beds.

Because you sow each 30x30 cm square patch several times a year, you produce on average about 12 euros worth of fresh, organic vegetables per plot. A box with a trellis yields even more.

You quickly earn back your investment when you harvest. But because your garden box will last for years and you don't have to replace the soil mix, what you produce after that first season is pure profit. Ka-CHING.
How do you set it up? (instructions)
We've made it super easy. 

Instructions in English are coming soon 🙂
More about sustainability and the materials
For this MM-Bamboo garden box, we use 3 cm (!) thick planks of durable bamboo. These planks last a long time, are stronger than wood, and won't crack or warp.

Bamboo is also way more environmentally friendly than wood. It grows 10x faster (up to 1 meter per day!) and after they're harvested, they grow back.

The high-quality bamboo material has a warm wood color. The planks are smooth and easy to clean. They hardly age at all over time.

It's designed by Remi from Hoefman Engineering.

Safe & clean

The materials the bamboo planks are made of meet the strictest safety and environmental requirements.

Read more about our bamboo, where it comes from,  sustainability, and the material here.

Connectors / screws

The planks are attached to each other with connectors and thick screws made from galvanized steel.

How do you keep the planks clean?

The bamboo will stay beautiful, year after year. But over time they will age slightly. Not nearly as much or as fast as wood does, but it's still something.

The advantage of bamboo is that - even after years of wear and tear - you can get it pretty close to its original color by oiling it. That's not an option for wood.

If you want to prevent discoloration from the start, the factory recommends treating the planks with a water-based oil made for outdoor wood, like Woca

More about ordering and delivery
We currently ship to the Netherlands and Belgium.

We ship the garden boxes and soil mix (MM-Mix) with a freight company. Usually on a pallet. So, it works a little differently than a package delivered through the postal service. 

The price of this garden box includes transportation costs.

Ordering

When you want to order, check your preferred date on the calendar (Monday through Friday).

You can provide any helpful details in the comments section. For example, you can inform us if the conditions for unloading are not ideal so the carrier can take it into account.

If you order and complete payment on a working day, you should receive your MM-Hero two days later. Deliveries are not made on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays. 

Delivery

Make sure that someone is present to receive the pallet or inform us where the pallet can be delivered. If we are unable to deliver the pallet, the driver will take it back with them and we'll have to make a new delivery appointment. Should this happen, you are responsible for covering any extra costs of a second delivery trip.

The pallet(s) will be delivered to your front door or the nearest location with easy access for a large truck (so not in your hallway or backyard). The MM-Heroes and the bags of mix are heavy so keep in mind that you will have to carry them to their final destination (on your 4th-floor roof terrace, or your backyard.)

Please note that due to the Corona regulations, drivers are not allowed to bring goods beyond the sidewalk or to the threshold of the building.

(The pallet stays behind and is yours to keep. If you're not cool with that, call your local community center: they're often happy to have them.)

Shipping to Belgium

We also ship to Belgium. Because of the extra costs the transport company charges and the toll, it adds up to an additional €35,-.  

The extra shipping costs are visible once you add your address in the order form. 

(We do not yet do pallet shipments to other countries. That will probably be possible in the course of this year). 

Pick up at points of sale

You can pick up our garden boxes from a few handy locations. Check out this map for NL and BE: https://makkelijkemoestuin.nl/verkooppunten

These folks usually have a few garden boxes. So you can check them out in person. Otherwise, they can also order them for you, and possibly deliver them for a small fee.

Note: order directly from them and not here in the shop.

Planty for schools and community
Planty Gardens are great for schools or community initiatives.

If you are investing in an edible garden for an institution, do it right the first time. There's a lot of planning, time and money involved. Don't settle for inadequate materials that break down quickly.

Using our materials and system, your vegetable garden is guaranteed to succeed.

Setting up a complete Planty Garden takes little time and is easy: no technical know-how needed. Our garden boxes are available in 2 sizes, with or without soil mix, legs and/or trellis. This makes them easy to use for children, adults, the elderly, and wheelchair access. 

Tip: Choose the smallest size if you've got children in mind.

Project discount

For large orders, we offer a discount, depending on the project and the number of garden boxes you'd like. Get in touch with us for more information and advice. 

Delivery can be made on short notice, no problem.
