  • Jiffy Windowsill Greenhouse Kit

  • Vegetable seeds

  • Water

  • Raised bed (optional)

  • Potting soil

  • Compost


  1. Water peat pellets contained within the windowsill greenhouse kit. The peat inside the pellets will take in the water and expand, growing from a flat pellet to a column of medium for seeds to grow in.

  2. Place vegetable seeds into pellets. Strong roots should appear within a few weeks of planting.

  3. Once seedlings reach a height of a few inches or more, they are ready to transplant into the ground or a raised bed. After transplanting, water seedlings evenly and steadily, and add compost to encourage growth. If using a raised bed, remember that they drain fast and need to be checked daily.
