What a cute little present this would make for someone who doesn’t have a garden. The Half Pint Mini Garden is a cleverly wrapped herb growing kit packaged like a milk carton. It includes a ceramic container, peat pellets and packets of basil, mint and thyme seeds. Simply add water to the peat pellets, sow the seeds, place on a window sill and watch them grow.
It costs £10.95 from the great website created specially for people with small outside spaces The Balcony Gardener.
