Etsy is home to all things handmade, extending even into the garden. DIY kits, seeds and starter plants and a range of ready-made options can be found under the plants and edibles section. Check below the jump for a few standout selections. 1. If you want to start a garden without giving up patio space, this vertical, framed succulent garden kit might be the solution. Vertical Living Wall Art Kit, $60 via So Succulent  2. For those lacking  outdoor space, this petite cactus zen garden is perfect perched atop a desk or countertop. Mini Cactus Lost in Zen, $18 via Wendiland 3. A trio of air plants are nested inside sea urchins for a tiny garden with a seaside vibe. Airplant Urchins, $30 via Peacocktaco 4. Recycled billboards are crafted into planters that can be used indoors or out. The urban feel and portability would work well in a city garden.  Planter No. 12, $20 via Notty Pooch 5. This shop specializes in rare, organic and heirloom seeds, with a wide selection to choose from, and includes a guide for best results with every purchase.  Organic Garden Seed Packs, 6 for $20 via Hollis and Hunter 6. Designed for the guerrilla gardener, these seed bombs can be tossed into a vacant lot (or your own back yard) and are designed to self propagate. Choose by region or by options such as pet friendly, wildflowers, or edibles. Seed Bomb- West Coast, $7 via VisuaLingual 7.  These zen  Marimo moss balls are actually an algae that originates from a lake in Japan. They thrive happily with very little care — just leave them in indirect sunlight, change the water every couple of weeks, and gently swish the container from time to time.  Zen Marimo Mini Terrarium, $7.50 via My Zen 8. While terrariums get a lot of play here on Apartment Therapy, this geometric version is a work of art. It comes with all the materials to get started, you just have to supply the plants. Teardrop Terrarium, $95 via ABJ Glassworks 9. With packaging that feels straight out of a science lab, this single moss ball under glass makes for a perfect desktop curio.  Mosser, $26 via The Mosser Store  10. Instead of sending flowers to a loved one, you can send this quirky but sweet "plant-o-gram". It comes packaged with a personalized card, air plants and a vessel of your choosing. Plant-O-Gram, $17 via Petit Beast  (Images: as linked above)
