Lowe’s free garden kits were a big hit in the last two years. With the 2021 introduction of their SpringFest sale, Lowe’s gave away free Garden-to-Go Kits every week in April. These kits were designed for kids and families to tackle together. Kits included things like DIY butterfly gardens and take-home tree saplings you can grow on your own.
But will Lowe’s bring back these free garden kits in 2023? Well, here’s what we know:
In the past, Lowe’s free Garden-to-Go Kits were available every Thursday in April.
During Lowe’s SpringFest 2021, Lowe’s offered Garden-to-Go Kits for free every Thursday in April for those who registered through Lowes.com. Shoppers could pick them up either in store or curbside. Here’s a look at the four different kits from 2021:
Lowe’s Garden-to-Go Kit: Miracle Grow
The first Lowe’s SpringFest freebie was a Miracle Grow Garden-to-Go kit that included unique recipes from Amanda Frederickson, a food stylist and pro cook. The kit was available on Thursday, April 8.
Lowe’s Garden-to-Go Kit: Mystery Garden Pinata
For the second Garden-to-Go kit, Lowe’s gave away the Mystery Garden Pinata, which came with mystery seed packets and “growfetti” (confetti made out of biodegradable seed paper).
Lowe’s Garden-to-Go Kit: Tree Sapling
In honor of Earth Day, Lowe’s gave away 500,000 tree saplings for this Garden-to-Go kit.
Lowe’s Garden-to-Go Kit: Butterfly Garden
On April 29, 2021, Lowe’s released their final Garden-to-Go Kit: a Butterfly Quest kit that contained wood to build a butterfly house along with paint, a paintbrush, and seeds to dress it up.
Other highlights from Lowe’s first SpringFest included in-store demos and discounts on spring must-haves.

Shoppers received free seeds during Lowe’s seed giveaway in 2022.
Given that Lowe’s Garden-to-Go Kits were so popular in 2021, we fully expected them to return in April 2022. However, Lowe’s changed it up with a seed giveaway this past spring. Here’s how it all went down:
Lowe’s shared real-life seeds through surprise in-store seed giveaways at select locations. You had to post a tulip emoji and the hashtag #SeedingSpring on social media on March 20, the first day of spring.
In addition to their seed giveaway, Lowe’s held their second annual SpringFest event from April 7 – May 4 in stores and online. Starting Tuesday, April 19, 2022, Lowe’s offered 30-minute SpringFESTIVAL Garden Tours through their lawn and garden center three times a day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Registration for tours began on April 7 at Lowes.com.
Unfortunately, Lowe’s won’t offer the free Garden-to-Go Kits in April 2023.
I know, we’re bummed, too. But after reaching out to a Lowe’s rep about the free Garden-to-Go Kits this April, we confirmed that Lowe’s will not be offering them in 2023.
On a brighter note, you’ll still be able to shop Lowe’s SpringFest for great deals on all things lawn and garden. The sale starts on Thursday, March 30, 2023!
Here’s to hoping Lowe’s brings back the free garden kits in years to come. In the meantime, check out all the best Lowe’s deals happening now.
