Ready to grow

With this garden sheet set, growing your own herbs, flowers, or veggies is (almost) as easy as unpacking and unrolling. Even if you have little space or know-how, Seedsheet is designed to help your gardening ambitions succeed. Each sheet is a weed-resistant tarp that contains strategically spaced seed pouches. The position gives each plant enough room to grow. Also, certain seeds are placed near one another, a technique called companion planting, which acts as a natural form of pest control. For instance, planting tomatoes near particular herbs can keep worms at bay. Maker Cam MacKugler’s background in architecture and green living informed the idea for Seedsheet—a combination of technology and design. He sketched his first prototype with crayons while he was house sitting an 80-acre farm. Spread the sheet on readied soil—like you would a picnic blanket—then mist the fabric as directed. The fine, food-safe film on the pouches will dissolve. (It’s similar to the thin coating on over-the-counter capsules.) In a few weeks, you’ll be celebrating your own gridded, non-GMO garden.

    Hello everyone! I'm proud to introduce Seedsheet to The Grommet. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have!

    To make a product that makes something like gardening easy for other people requires expertise on your part. What experience did you have that led to the idea of Seedsheet?

  • Cam

    My academic background was in sustainable architecture, and I worked at a great design firm that built a lot of living roofs, vegetated walls, and other growing elements. That was where I first experienced the intersection of design and nature, an opportunity to use the precision of architecture to maximize the health of plants.

    Fortunately, I live in Vermont, so there is no shortage of agricultural experience to tap into. I surrounded myself with insanely intelligent horticulturalists and agriculture professors, and set out to build the database which our algorithm now refers to.

  • Cam

    6/23/2016 8:51 AM

    From the start I knew that I had to make gardening simpler, not just from a labor perspective, but mental as well. There's a lot of research that goes into building a garden; what plants do I want this year? Do they work with each other? How much spacing do they need? Do I need to trellis my peas? Do they work in my climate? Will my cucumbers overrun my lettuce? Ahhhhh!

    So the very first Seedsheets set out to solve that mental barrier that is preventing people from starting their first garden. Each Seedsheet is designed with our algorithm to give you the confidence that every seed is in it's ideal position, and your garden will thrive.

    Secondly, conventional gardening is tough. It takes a lot of time to plant seeds, and even more time each week to bend over and pull weeds. That's not the fun part about gardening, the fun part is working to nurture the plants until you can harvest them and cook up an amazing homegrown dinner! So we set out to remove those labor barriers too, and by simply rolling out a Seedsheet, and watering, you can enjoy the perfectly designed garden that you never have to weed!

    Why should anyone looking to start their own garden look to Seedsheet?

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 9:29 AM

    You should look to Seedsheet because we want to help you Take Control of Your Food! We believe that you should know where your food comes from, you should know its story, and you should control its destiny. We built the Seedsheet to help you feel good about the food you're eating, so we use the best organic nonGMO seeds possible. We don't want you to worry about scary chemicals in herbicides, so we use a weed-blocking fabric to naturally keep the weeds out.

    The idea for the Seedsheet came to me while harvesting delicious veggies at a Vermont farm. We believe that you should have your own Vermont farm... even if it's on your windowsill, roof, deck or yard.

    what happens to the sheet after the garden season? is it compostable? able to be recycled?

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 10:27 AM

    @Jamie thanks for the Q! The sheet is a #5 recyclable fabric, so it can be recycled, or it can be reused if you want to manually plant seeds into the empty holes. We do recommend rotating different types of crops in your garden each year so you can rebuild your soil's nutrients. You can either plant a different Seedsheet the following year, or sow in different seeds with similar spacing characteristics. Thanks!

    I live in the deep south, as in 100+ degrees on many days in the summer and frequent 90+ in the spring and fall. Will you be developing a more heat-tolerant or regional appropriate sheet for vegetables? Broccoli grows here very poorly and only in the mildest of spring or cool fall. The variety shown on your veggie sheet will not grow well here within the same time frame.

    @Virginia thanks for the Q! We actually had the incorrect information for that product and just changed it to be accurate. The Veggie sheet contains: beans, peas, carrots, kale, and lettuce. We source the fastest growing varieties possible to ensure that people with short growing windows can grow food successfully. That being said, choose the coolest time of the year for your hot climate and plant a Seedsheet then. Happy Growing!

    Since the growing season has already started and I have my vegetable garden in, if I were to purchase a sheet of vegies at store them would they be good till next year? Should I freeze them or just put them in a cool place? Or not a good idea to pre purchase at all. Sounds like a wonderful concept.

    Hello from Washington State

    @Susie Thanks for the Q! We seal each Seedsheet into protective packaging, and have a 1-Year shelf life, so any kit you buy today can be planted next growing season! We recommend keeping them in a cool place, & sealed in their packaging before planting. The smaller Herb Kit is fast growing, and a great season extender to keep your meals deliciously garnished after your garden's been plucked through! Happy growing!

    Hello. I think this is a fantastic concept. I have literally zero experience with growing any types of vegetables, but want to learn. I'm not sure if I'm in your target market or not, but I do have a few questions. All of the kits require "a prepared soil bed" and some sort of associated structure, which I understand would be on me to build or buy. What would constitute the soil part of the soil bed, though? Do you all have any guidance or recommendations with regard to the proper soil mix or recommend a widely available prepared soil I could pick up at any of the big box stores to get me started? I'm looking at the veggie kit, if it helps, and I live in Maryland. Thanks for any guidance or advice.

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 12:27 PM

    @Jason Thanks for the Q, and welcome to the gardening tribe! You will need a "prepared soil bed" which means that you need a healthy, nutrient-dense base for the plants' roots to grow down into. We recommend organic compost/soil mixes, and at least 10"-12" of depth for the smaller Kits, and 24"-36" of depth for the larger Veggie & Tomato Kits. I'd suggest getting a good organic mix, as many of the non-organic brands aren't very high quality and result in slowly/poorly growing plants. We also love raised beds since they're easy to maintain, and there are loads of kits in the market that will let you get started cheaply. Once you build a raised bed you essentially have an outdoor fridge that you can keep harvesting from year after year! It may sound like a lot of work to get up and running, but a trip to the back yard is easier than a trip to the supermarket, and a heck of a lot tastier too ;) Happy growing!

    Are you able to cut seed sheets to fit a box already in the gardens? What kind of soil do you recommend with these sheets?

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 12:13 PM

    @Francine Thanks for the Q! Because the weed-blocking fabric is indeed a fabric it can be easily cut to fit an existing planter or raised bed. We designed each sheet to fit within most popular size boxes, but they can easily be cut with scissors to fit. As far as soil goes, we recommend planting on top of ~12" of soil for the smaller herb and flower kits, and ~24"-36" of soil for the larger Veggie and Tomato Kits. Happy growing!

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 12:16 PM

    @Sonya Thanks for the Q! The Flower Kit has 2 Teddy Sunflowers (really cute puffy flowers, that only grows to about 24" high, the most urban friendly sunflowers out there), 2 Marigolds, 1 Nasturtium, and 1 Zinnia. Each plant will yield multiple flowers, if I had to guestimate I'd say the sunflowers will have 2-6 heads each, the nasturtiums around 10-20 flowers, the marigolds 2-6 flowers, and zinnias 1-4. An important note though: Nasturtiums are edible and delicious! Include them in your salad for some bright color and sweet and spicy flourish! Enjoy!

    Hello Cam,

    What makes the weed sheet weed resistant?

  • Cam
    Cam – Special Guest
    6/23/2016 12:20 PM

    @Jamie Thanks for the Q! The weed-blocking fabric naturally prevents weeds from photosynthesizing since it is UV-resistant, and it also prevents any from being able to grow upwards. It is far superior to plastic as it is perforated, so water will soak through it, and air will flow through as well. The breathable fabric prevents mold from contaminating your plants, and helps save water since it soaks through and helps slow evaporation. Veg on!

    I'm also in the same position as Susi (6/23/16) and am interested to learn whether or not I can purchase a veggie sheet, store it over the winter and use it next spring, as my garden is already up and running.

    Really great idea you have here. Can imagine my purchasing more than one sheet containing different veggies, and such.

    @Cheryl Thanks for the Q! We use Emerald Oak Lettuce, which is a fast growing butterhead that is crunchy and sweet. Our beans are Provider Bush Beans, which are similarly fast growing and will keep growing new beans as fast as you can harvest them! All of our seeds are sourced from High Mowing Seed Company, which is local to us in Vermont, and are Organic and NonGMO! Grow on!
