Growing a Garden in a Jar

If your small space has no green space, you might want to consider going very small and grow a garden in a bottle. Instructions after the jump...

  1. Find a good sized bottle
  2. Use it upright or turn it on its side.
  3. Layer damp sand and small pebbles on the floor of the bottle. Consider a layer of activated charcoal to absorb any smells and a layer of moss to keep the soil from settling. Add your soil.
  4. Choose seeds from small plants with similar requirements that can stand a good deal of humidity.
  5. Place your mini-greenhouse in medium sun and tend it carefully.
