We’ve featured vertical gardens, rooftop gardens, urban gardens and a bevy of other kinds of gardens, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen teensy weensy bottlecap gardens! Spotted over at Springwise, these adorable miniature gardens come from the Japanese Merry Project. At just JPY 158, the planters need just a dollop of soil and basil seeds, which are placed in a bottle cap, watered, and voila – grown-up basil eventually emerges. More an environmental statement than a solution for widespread urban farming, they are nonetheless very sweet. Eventually, the company will offer a whole variety of seeds.
