Let’s face it—growing certain types of produce, like berries or tomatoes, can definitely seem daunting. You may have purchased some seeds in the past with a plan to do it all on your own, but then had no luck—probably because you didn’t have quite everything you needed. While there are tons of starter gardening kits out there that provide special soil mixes, growing pots, and more items to help the process, not all of them garner successful results. Fortunately, Amazon shoppers are known for leaving in-depth reviews to let others know what’s really worth trying out—and they’ve deemed these beginner gardening kits from Nature’s Blossom as some of the best.

The Nature’s Blossom Sow & Grow Seed Starter Kits ($22; amazon.com) are the most-reviewed gardening kits on the retail giant’s site, with over 1,000 shoppers leaving them raving five-star reviews. The home gardening brand has several kits available, offering all kinds of vegetables, fruits, and flowers to grow on your own, including purple carrots, kale, tea herbs, tomatoes, onions, pumpkins, and sunflowers. Each kit comes with four varying organic seed packets, compressed soil mix, biodegradable growing pots, plant markers, and an in-depth instruction manual. Customers say that while the results may take time, the kits really do work.

“My kids and I planted our tomato seeds on January 23rd. We're in Southern California, and we were having a week or so of very warm weather, so finding a sunny/warm window for them was not a problem. It took 8 days for the very first sprouts to appear,” one shopper wrote. "[Three months later] we have 4 thriving tomato plants (one of each variety) growing nicely in grow bags. Although these got a bit of a slow start, they are doing well, and we're hoping to see some actual fruit in the next week or two.”
