Potting Shed Creations Grow Bottle
What's a better gift than a little taste of spring in the middle of winter? These cool "Grow Bottles" are based on the idea of hydroponics—growing plants in water without any soil—and can provide your giftee with a stead supply of organic basil, chives, mint, oregano or parsley until next growing season. The herbs take root in the top half of the "grow bottle," which is actually a reclaimed wine bottle cut in half, and are fed by a wool wick that draws water and plant nutrient up from the bottom. Who wouldn't want one of these sitting on a windowsill all winter?
