Soon, you’ll be able to find everything you’d need to make a mini allotment on your kitchen countertop in IKEA.
The gardening kits have been created in collaboration with scientists from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. From April, you can buy the new KRYDDA/VÄXER system. They come with handy gardening items like absorbent foam plugs that keep in moisture and prevent over-watering, and some highly absorbent pumice stones.
The sets are part of a larger initiative. Chef Sustainability Officer, Steve Howard, revealed during the Guardian Sustainable Business debate, that the flatpack furniture gurus are working towards building a circular IKEA, that encourages you to repair and recycle products.
