Fresh Herbs When You Want Them
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly way to grow your own herbs year-round, think about using a Grow Bottle. It’s produced by Potting Shed Creations, and provides a second life for an old wine bottle. The bottle comes with organic seeds and “clay grow pebbles” and creates a hydroponic system to grow the herbs (it uses water instead of dirt). After your herbs have been used up from seasoning your meals, simply empty the bottle and start again with one of the Replant Kits or your own seeds.
If you’re looking for more of a one-time use herb or plant pot, look at the “gardens in a bag”. These make great gifts, and I can vouch for the delicious mini tomatoes that brightened my windowsill last year.
