It’s always nice to have fresh herbs available in the kitchen. The most practical and economical way to deal with them is to grow them yourself, as you almost always end up with more than you need with store-bought, and the leftovers tend to go bad rather quickly. Herbs are some of the easiest things to grow – aside from weeds – but there will always be a few of us who just aren’t good at growing things. For the horticulturally impaired, the Power Plant Herb Garden is a tiny hydroponic growth chamber that will have your basil, mint and whatever else you want to plant growing in no time. The seeds are placed into the chamber with a nutrient-rich, but soil-less, growth sponge which provides them with exactly the right amount of water that they need to thrive, not to mention the vitamins that they need to be healthy.
These little gardens are also great for apartments and other places where there isn’t much space available. The tall, thin garden boxes fit neatly onto a windowsill, countertop or desk. As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about knocking them over and spilling soil and water all over the place because the containers are very stable – not to mention that they don’t actually use soil.
