Triscuit: Helping you create your own garden!

I may not be the ‘greenest’ person in the world, but I am doing what I can for our planet. When I see companies that we use in our home, step up and help us to help the environment, this makes me love the companies even more. Recently, I saw an ad for Triscuit that I truly fell in love with! On each box, there is a seed that you can plant.


Triscuit has a goal to help Americans everywhere create their own home garden by placing plantable herb seed cards in four million boxes of Triscuit crackers.


When I was growing up, my mother always had a garden and I used to help her in it. Oh, the memories that I remember! I would love to start up a garden in our house and have the kids help with it. We can start our own garden memories! We will be planting the seed that is on the Triscuit box. I am excited to plant this and get started on our own family gardening traditions!

Did you know that Triscuit has a partnership with the non-profit organization Urban Farming? Even Ellen got in on the fun! You can click on this link for more information.

IMG_2_2_1_aboutyourtriscuitseedsThe gift of seeds
To help sow the seeds of creating your very own home farm, we’re giving away basil and dill seeds. They’re inside specially marked boxes of Triscuit. It’s our way of inviting you to be part of something bigger. Let’s all join in and help grow the Home Farming movement together. It can all begin when you plant your free basil and dill seeds from Triscuit today!

Growing with our partners
Simple, authentic goodness is what Triscuit is all about – that’s why we support the Home Farming movement. We’re working with to get everyone into the joy, the community, and the other bountiful rewards that are born of the Home Farming movement.

How to grow your seeds
Take the seed card out from the box & soak 2-4 hours before planting.
Starting at one of the corners, peel the seed card into two pieces to expose the seeds.
Place both card pieces in an 8″ pot full of dirt with the seed side up. Cover the cards with a quarter inch of dirt.
Keep soil moist, but not overly wet, with 6-8 hours of sunlight everyday.
Seeds should sprout in 10-12 days.

I have to say that after trying Triscuit crackers, as an adult, I like them now. My kids really like them! I wasn’t sure if they would, but our home has a new favorite cracker!

All opinions in this posting are 100% my own. I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Triscuit and received the product necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

    Hey, Ellen, you go girl! I would suggest raised bed gardens, and put that compost in them right over your crappy soil. You could even try putting your partially composted stuff in the raised bed and them throwing a little topsoil over it bef :yes: ore planting.

  2. My basil seeds are growing just fine, two came up. My question is, are the seeds organic or are they MSG, or are they ordinary seeds?

    Thank you ,

    I am gonna have to look for those boxes! We got the lot next door, but… the soil is horrid because they tore a house down- I will be composting all of this year to get the soil ready for next year!
    Love it when companies do things like this tho 🙂
