It's becoming clear that I can be easily distracted into gardening by anything cute. I have no interest in proper gardening, that's too high maintenance and far too much effort. But little plant post that look like milk cartons? Absolutely. Sign me up.
The Half Pint Garden is a great idea. Everything you need is in this little herb growing kit and you get three packs of seeds for your tenner - basil, mint and thyme - then you just open up your little milk carton and watch your herbs grow. I quite like the idea of handing this over at Christmas, perfectly wrapped so your gift recipient thinks you've given them a pint of milk when they got you a new sweater. That said, I actually have run out of milk this morning, so that might be quite useful. This is the perfect stocking filler.
Want a little Half Pint Garden? They're £10.95 from The Balcony Gardener.
