January 5th 2021: Introduction of our new and slightly larger seed grow kit
Today we are introducing our new version of the Giant Sequoia and Coastal Redwood seed grow kits. During 2020 we developed and tested a new version of the seed grow kit.
During 2020 we developed and tested a new seed grow kit. The new seeding kit has a number of advantages over the previous version. This new model growth kit again contains everything you need to grow this special Giant Sequoia, also called Giant Redwood, from a seed to the largest tree on earth. The iconic California state trees the Coast Redwood (Coastal Sequioa Tree, Sequoia sempervirens) and Giant Redwood (Giant Sequoia / Sequoiadendron giganteum) are among the world's most fantastic living organisms and do well in a variety of locations and climatic zones including the UK.
About the new seed grow kit model
In 2020 we put together and tested a new seed grow kit. The new seed grow kit offers a number of advantages over the previous version. The most noticeable differences to the earlier version of the sowing set:
- The new mini greenhouse is available in both a round shape and an "eye shape" (oval)
- The new mini greenhouse has a slightly larger cultivation area due to its larger diameter (~ 29 cm2 instead of ~ 20 cm2)
- Due to the larger diameter, additional germinating seeds are easier to reach (round: ~ 6 cm, eye shape: ~ 7.4 cm x ~ 5 cm)
- Slightly higher mini greenhouse (~ 15 cm instead of ~ 10 cm)
- A larger amount of culture medium so that the germinated seeds can grow a little longer in the mini greenhouse
- The new mini greenhouse can be shipped flat
- Despite the larger mini greenhouse and a larger amount of growing medium and perlite, the price has stayed the same
With this sowing kit we expect we will again allow hundreds of people to grow young Sequoias. Fun to do and fun to give.
