Planet-friendly gardening indoors or out.
I have found some wonderful ways to grow herbs or plants with these fabulous kits. They are marvellous way to give to friends as a gift – or a splendid way to treat yourself to fresh herbs or exciting garden (or patio) flowers and plants.
What’s even better is that these items are all sustainable and planet-friendly.
Take for example, the basil growing kits you see on the right. They are made from recycled wine bottles recovered from restaurants and the kit includes everything you need to grow fresh basil hydroponically at home.
The seeds are USDA certified organic heirloom varieties and the whole ensemble will look fabulous on your window ledge or in your kitchen – even on your dining table.
Yes, I love to have fresh growing herbs on the dining table when I entertain. Your guests can flavour their meal with fresh herbs according to their own taste and nothing is better than fresh and organic.
There are so many more kits available though that you’ll love. For outdoor gardeners there are kits containing flowers that will attract butterflies or birds to your yard, for example. You can see the entire range here.
The idea of having fresh herbs on your dinner table when entertaining first came to me from Martha Stewart – if you’re serving an Italian meal for example, treat your guests to fresh basil, thyme and oregano. They can add it to their salads, pasta or pizza and the live growing herbs make a wonderful centrepiece in their attractive and sustainable containers.
You can see more lovely example below but do visit the site to see the entire range of planet-friendly and stylish products available.
