tree seedlings

Build your very own forest! Well, it may take a while with this particular product. They are tree seedlings in a wooden cube by Jouko Karkkainen. Just plant the box and away you go. Each cube is made from the wood of the same tree that the contained seed will grow into. That’s particularly fun.

Or just buy a shoebox full of cubes, put them in your office cubicle (or any place grasping desperately for a slice of nature) and pretend that you’re in the mist of the Satkania Forest in Bangladesh.

Prices range from 13-15 euros. ouch. maybe the shoebox idea isn’t that great.
