I've seen Altoid tins used for a lot of things— watercolor tins, candle holders, sewing kits, even paperclip holders. But a pocket garden is something I haven't really considered until seeing this Instructable. This is a potentially great fix for those craving to exercise their green thumb, but are confined to a small apartments with no yard or foliage in the surrounding area. These would also be really fun on a desk at work.
It only takes around 3 days to sprout seedlings, with the help of a tissue and water over top. It's always refreshing to watch stuff grow, even if it is in a teeny-tiny tin! Check out Instructables for more info on how to grow your own!
