It’s the supermarket promotion that’s taken Australia by storm. But while thousands are taking part in Woolworths Discovery Garden planting bonanza, it seems not all of us have a green thumb!
One Aussie shopper has revealed their epic gardening fail, while trying to get into the Discovery Garden spirit.
Posting on a Facebook group, the gardening novice wrote: ‘I feel like a complete idiot. I thought those little papers were a manufacturing label to mark each pot. I didn’t realise they continued the seeds!!!!! I thought the seed was within that brown disc and threw out that silly little paper thing!!!’
Uh-oh! It’s not the first gardening fail we’ve spotted since Discovery Garden started earlier this month, with another beginner gardener revealing that she threw away the soil disc - not realising that it expanded to become dirt inside her pot. Doh!
The group’s other members were quick to offer laughs and supports, assuring the shopper that they’re not the only one to make a gardening mistake!
‘My friend did the same thing!’ said one. Added another: ‘Sorry - thanks for sharing ... because that is hilarious! I’ve personally had my own mishap.. wind blew mine over and now I’m not sure what’s what! Not that worried, though ... I’ll work it out!’
