"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
― Chinese proverb
Your love of avocados can thrive long after eating one; just save the seed, grow it and discover the extraordinary tree inside with the innovative Avocado Vase.
We have refined the traditional method of growing, skipping the toothpicks, and utilizing the opening to cradle the seed keeping it dry as it sprouts and encouraging the roots to flourish freely. The sinuously shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper; creating a perfect focal point to witness the plant as it develops.
The Avocado Vase’s pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality, allows you to observe the avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants' first stages of life.
“A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”
- Greek Proverb
Innovative and beautifully designed the Acorn Vase allows you to witness a simple acorn grow into a magnificent oak tree.
The oakling, a young oak tree, can thrive for up to one year in the vase, receiving essential nutrients from the acorn. Once matured, the oakling can be replanted outside and the vase reused for a new acorn.
Perfect for urban dwellers, tree lovers, inquisitive children and design enthusiasts to bring the magic of nature into their home and hopefully oak trees for future generations.
“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
