YES PLEASE: Woolworths has just launched a range of mini seedling kit collectables.

Attention crazy plant ladies.

Following on from their Lion King Ooshies campaign, Woolworths have announced the launch of their collectable seedling kits and we have all the details.

The Woolworths Discovery Garden will give you the chance to grow your very own vegetables, herbs and flowers when it becomes available in-store and online from Wednesday, September 11.

For every $30 you spend at Woolworths, customers can collect a seedling kit.

And if you spend $15 on fresh fruit or vegetables within the $30 in-store shop you’ll also receive a bonus seedling kit.

With 24 different varieties to collect, it’s a cheap and shameless way to add to your growing plant collection. We’ve officially never been more excited to go grocery shopping.

The different varieties available to collect and grow include thyme, basil, coriander, kale, spinach, carrots and even flowers like violas and pansies.

Most importantly, each seedling pouch comes in it’s own biodegradable pot to reduce waste.

The launch of the new campaign comes as new research, conducted by Woolworths, revealed more than 40 per cent of Aussies don't grow their own herbs and veggies, while seven out of 10 would like to.

“Learning about fresh food, where it comes from, how it grows, how long it takes to grow, whether it’s easy or challenging are all questions that will encourage meaningful discussions at home, at school and even at work," Sarah De La Mare, Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Programs Manager said.

“Along with all of the positive mental, physical and economical benefits of gardening, we also want to unearth the joys of growing your own fresh herbs, veggies and flowers - from planting the seedling, celebrating the first sprout through to harvesting and eating what you have grown."

And for those of us who struggle to keep our plants alive, no need to worry, each collectable seedling comes with a list of instructions inside the cardboard casing.

A free interactive growth chart and learning book is also available in-store and online.

For dedicated collectors, a Woolworths Discovery Garden collector tray can be purchased for $4.
