Cultivate Your Israel Connection and Plant Israel At Home

It isn't always easy to find room for Israel in our busy lives. As we seek ways to connect to a homeland, so far away, so foreign, so surrounded by conflict, we learn it is the little things that count - those small reminders of the beauty and potential that Israel possesses.

With Plant Israel At Home's Israeli Wildflower Seeds you can actively cultivate your connection to Israel year-round.

Plant Israel at Home™ was created to give people all over the world the chance to grow a bit of the beauty of the Land of Israel in their own homes, gardens, and hearts but most importantly, to help people feel connected to a place so far away, and yet so much a part of us.

Israeli wildflowers are really a thing of beauty. Their diversity is a direct reflection of the culture, society and history of Israel – so many different peoples, so many eras, leaders and wars which all come together within this tiny landscape. They brighten the winter, they soften the spring. It is no wonder that we celebrate Tu B’Shevat, the New Year of Trees, by taking part in the planting of a seed or sapling that we will watch grow over time. Order Your Seeds Today!

You don't have to have a green thumb to Plant Israel at Home™!

With family and friends, or for a community event, plant Israeli wildflower seeds in your garden, in a planter to put on the window sill or anywhere that will always remind you of your little piece of Israel.

Celebrate your connection to Israel as we wish Happy New Year to the trees!

In Jewish tradition, Tu B'Shevat, the New Year of Trees (often referred to as the Jewish Arbor Day) is celebrated on the 15th (TU = ט"ו) day of the Jewish month of Shevat שבט, this year on January 15-16. This is one of the 4 New Years mentioned in the Mishnah. Known in Israel as "Chag Ha'Ilanot" (Ilan אילן= tree), we honor this day when budding fruit enters a new year of life and the first bulbs of spring are beginning to bloom.
