Grow Bottles

Handmade in Idaho from repurposed restaurant wine bottles, Grow Bottles are a fresh new way to grow herbs in the kitchen. After sourcing the bottles, Potting Shed Creations cuts them in half and finishes the edges. The top portion of the bottle inverts and nests into the bottom, and a natural wool wick is threaded through the neck of the bottle and draws up nutrient rich water from the base to the seed that is planted in clay pebbles. Each kit includes either basil, chives, oregano, parsley, or mint seeds, along with clay pebbles, vermiculite (to concentrate moisture while the seeds germinate), wool wick, plant nutrient, cork coaster, and directions. You can reuse the bottles by simply rinsing off the pebbles, washing the bottle in a dishwasher, and popping in a replant kit.  The 8”-high Grow Bottles can be purchased online at uncommon goods for $35.00 USD each (refills are $6.00 USD).
