Grow It; Eat It!

DuneCraft
CLEVELAND, OH - (Virtual Press Office) - Dune Craft is excited to present its newest offerings to its two edible lines including Sprout n' Grow Greenhouses and Organic Veggies. These lines are designed to sprout and grow plants in and then transplant them or to sprout them and plant the entire container in the garden.

These lines are fun, educational, and promote healthy eating. Growing what you eat is smart and the trend is catching on! That's right, having your own vegetable garden is now trendy. In fact according to the 2009 Edibles Gardening Trends Research Report conducted by the Garden Writer's Association (GWA) Foundation, over 41 million U.S. households, or 38 percent planted a vegetable garden in 2009. And, more than 19.5 million households (18 percent) grew an herb garden and 16.5 million households (15 percent) grew fruits during the same period.

The study found that there was a growth in edible gardening from both experienced gardeners and from an influx of new gardeners: 92 percent of respondents had previous experience and 7 percent (7.7 million households) were new edible gardeners.

Another survey done by the American Gardening Association showed a 19 percent increase in new hobby country farms and urban edible gardens in 2009 over 2008.

Sure to be a big hit is the company's newest addition to the Sprout n' Grow line- Coffee! The plants make wonderful houseplants with their glossy, green foliage while consumers are waiting for the Cherries to form. Another addition to this exciting line is Mini Cantaloupes. These four-inch fruits have a thin rind to make a perfect one-person snack. Other additions to the line include Hot Peppers.

DuneCraft doubled the number of choices in its popular Organic Veggies line. All the seeds used in this line are organic and have not been genetically modified. Some of the new additions include Finger Eggplant, Sweet Peppers, Sunflowers, and Watermelon.

DuneCraft's Edible Lines can be found at Tractor Supply, Wegman's, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby and many other retailers, catalogs, and web sites. For more information please visit http://www.dunecraft.com.
