The New World Little Garden collection craze has taken root.
The supermarket chain began the six-week promotion on September 7, giving away vegetable, herb and flower seedling kits with every $40 spent – so you’d have to spend $960 over six weeks to collect them all.
Kiwi parents committed to collecting the full catalogue have adopted a ‘work smarter not harder’ approach and founded numerous community Facebook groups to trade and on-sell excess seedlings of one type in exchange for the plants they don’t have.
Trade Me spokesperson Millie Silvester said the individual seedlings and sets are selling for “big bucks” online.
