Grow Your Own Basil In The World’s Smallest Urban Garden – Plastic Bottle Caps
Posted By Tafline Laylin On April 14, 2011 @ 9:28 am In Gardening | No Comments
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.
