Reel Gardening was invented with a mission to get more people growing in whatever small space they have available in as little time as possible. We believe that your garden should be quick, easy and fun to plant and need only 5 minutes of your time daily to care for it. That’s why we developed our complete kits and our app.

Reel Gardening is a patented biodegradable seed tape which anchors seed and nutrients at the correct depth and distance apart. To plant, place the paper vertically in the soil with the coloured portion visible above the soil. The plants emerge correctly spaced, differentiated from weeds and the paper eventually decomposes to produce compost in the soil. Reel Gardening hosts a variety of benefits making it more successful than traditional seed.

All of our products are handmade with care and love in Johannesburg South Africa. Our manufacturing process is designed to create maximum employment of previously unemployed mothers.

We believe that for us to solve the current food crisis, we need to get back to basics and we need to get hooked on growing food. We design design a simple, fun, African inspired planting kit that enables anyone to grow their own herbs or vegetables anywhere.

Our kits are made in a traditional South African fabric called ShweShwe. This fabric is usually reserved to make dresses and headwear for special occasions. We believe that a starting a food garden is a special occasion and your garden should be something beautiful in your home which takes centre stage and becomes a feature and not an eyesore. We also believe that growing your own food should be really simple and easy and that you should only have to spend a maximum of 5 minutes a day caring for it.

Our kits come complete with everything you need and all of our products link into our App which is available for free download on any device. There is a weekly animated video that simply explains what is needed by your plants that week and then the app will tell you exactly what you need to do each day according to what you planted, your Reel Garden promises to not need more than 5 minutes of your time. And the app even reminds you to water!

The kits are priced so that for every kit we sell, we are able to donate a kit to a school in need. We have implemented our School Learn & Grow Kits over 2500 schools across South Africa with great success.
