  • Our Growing Tree Kit comes with all you need to grow an oak tree starting from a seed.

As the mighty oak comes from just one tiny seed, its strength comes from the acorn’s growth and perseverance. A perfect companion in hard times, this memorial gift will grow along with your loved one's grief and be a reminder of their strength.

Grieving friend

My friend lost her mother. She loves the outdoors. I felt this was the best gift to her in memory of her mother. I remember what it was like at my father in laws funeral. All the flowers were at the funeral home & we had to load all of them up. Although they are a wonderful gesture, you still have to figure out who is taking what. This gift arrives at their home. I like that option alot. My friend told me she loved this gift idea. She mentioned it was unique & thoughtful. It arrived quickly as well. I would definitely recommend this & I will do it again in the future.
Dear Dawn-
Thank you for your kind words in the review and your recent purchase. We appreciate your business.
We would like to first send our deepest condolences to your friend and the family. There’s a special place in all of our hearts for our mothers, just like there’s a special place in every mother’s heart for her children. You must continue to carry her memory in that special place in your heart.
We absolutely agree with you that sending a plant and or tree in lieu of flowers that may not last is very unique and thoughtful gift. It is also is a way to continue life, provide encouragement with growth, remind us to be strong and most of all provide a memorial and tribute to the ones we loved and miss.
We are very honored to have been a part of this special gift and hope that we can continue to serve you in the future. Please feel free to keep us updated with the progress with this seedling's growth progresses. We love pictures!

After losing their father/grandfather our friend's family planted the seed together in the container and hopefully after it germinates will plant it outside this spring. They were very grateful for the act and sentiment, and I hope the tree will be a loving reminder of him.
Dear Valued Customer,
We send our condolences thoughts and prayers to your friend and their family, during this difficult time of grief and loss. We hope this little seed will show them an example of strength, courage and endurance. May they feel comfort and peace as the memories of this beloved man continue to live on and grow with this tree.
We appreciate your business.

My nephew and his wife recently suffered the loss of their unborn baby girl a few weeks before her due date. They have a 3 year old and our entire family has been awaiting the arrival of a new baby. We sent them a Seeds of Life tree appropriate for their zone and they absolutely loved it. They even had their 3 year old participate in planting the tree and placing the beautiful sign (that comes with the tree) next to it. My nephew's wife cried when she opened the gift, it was so special.

I bought this for my best friend when her dad died. She said the engraved tag was lovely and was moved by the gift. I wanted to give her something quality and lasting and this seemed it was as perfect as I wanted it to be.

This gift definitely was a great choice to send my friend's family who just lost their father/grandfather. The oak tree seed arrived in a timely manner. The family planted the seed after preparing it per instructions and planted it to memorialize their loved one. I will definitely order from this company again!

A Perfect Gift at a Sad Time
February 2nd, 2021

A good friend of mine lost her 20something year old son to Cancer. There's nothing that can fill that void. But I had hoped to give her and her much younger daughter something of a keepsake. My hopes that planting a Tree and the added engraved Tag will somehow give them a pleasant reminder as the tree grows. SEEDS OF LIFE went above and beyond. I ordered the Gable Gift Box on Friday without any expectation that it would even be delivered within the following week let alone the very next day. My friend came home from the Memorial and the Delivery was there on Saturday Afternoon. Less than 24hrs Later the package had been delivered! The Customer Service, care and consideration are Top Notch with this company!! Thank you so much!
A beautiful thought
January 15th, 2021

We ordered this gift for my parents when in two weeks we lost three beloved aunts. My parents were simply just broken for the huge loss to our family and in such a short period of time. Added to the sorrow, the delays for services because of Covid19. I ordered the Gable Box for an over night delivery and they received it at the time expected. They were moved to tears at the thought and planted the tree right away. It meant a lot to them and I was told they never would have thought of doing this. They were happy to have something to remember all of them by. Thank you for making a difficult time just a bit easier. Even if just for a moment.

We received one of the gable boxes as a condolence gift when my mother-in-law passed. It was so touching and perfect that I decided to start using them when ever one of my clients loses a loved one. Each one has been delivered in a timely fashion and has grown quickly. I will continue to use this service and gifts as needed in the times of my clients' great sorrow.
Received and ordered in the same day.

I was so touched by the gift I received as a memorial for a loved one.. The packaging was beautiful and the thought left me speechless. I in turn ordered - same day - as a memorial for my Aunt's passing. I know my cousins will be equally touched when they receive their gift.

This is the 2nd gift we purchased for the loss of a loved one. I haven't seen the most recent gift, but the family we sent it to was thrilled with it. I will continue to purchase this type of gift from this company. It came a day earlier than expected and was a pleasant surprise for the recipients. This is something the whole family can be included in to memorialize a loved one lost.

Best gift ever

I have been both a recipient and a giver of this product and I can tell you either side is extremely gratifying. When we lost my Dad, we received this gift and it has given something positive for us to focus on in memory of my Dad. I then paid it forward to a business customer who lost his Mom. What a wonderful gift and tribute that you can watch grow in their honor. Would highly recommend!

Nice product, but lousy customer experience and service.
Hi Robert,

I now understand what went wrong with your order. We should not have charged you for shipping on each individual gable gift box since they were all being delivered to the same address. During your live chat conversation, Maria did not have the detailed information about your order.

We will issue you a credit of 50.85. Again, I am sorry you did not have a good customer experience. I hope we can serve you in the future with excellent customer service! Please use the code XXXX for 25% off your next purchase.

Thank you and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further concerns.


Julie Roth


Thanks Julie,

It was quite obvious to me that Maria did not have all of the information needed to help and she most certainly pencil whipped the answer back to me without any research of my complaint.

I am very satisfied with the product and your help through this silly process of getting the customer’s questions/needs answered.

Again many thanks for helping my niece through her difficult time.

Always the best gift

I have given Seeds of Life sympathy gifts several times to several friends/family. Always so appreciated and a touching sentiment. Gives the receiver something to focus on which is a sweet and forever reminder of their loved one. When I speak to the receiver, it is always something we talk about and it is a perfect opportunity to share stories about our loved one who has passed.
