If you’ve been enjoying a glass (or two) of chilled wine poolside this summer, we’ve found the perfect way to upcycle your wine bottles: This kit lets you grow delicious herbs using your empty wine bottles.
Available for purchase at Uncommon Goods for $22, the Bottle Stopper Garden Kit makes it so easy to grow an adorable herb garden. Once your wine bottle is empty, all you have to do is fill it with water, plug the neck with a “smart soil” capsule, and add in some herb seeds. Just place it in a sunny spot like your kitchen windowsill, and watch your herbs grow over the next few weeks. The herbs are so low maintenance that you don’t even need to water them everyday.
The hydroponic kit comes with three seed varieties: sweet basil, dill, and French parsley. It also includes three biodegradable corn-starch inserts, three germination domes, and three sticker labels for the bottles so you can keep track of what herb is in each bottle. Really, all you need is three empty wine bottles to grow an adorable herb garden in your home. The seller also offers an edible flower kit that you can use to grow cosmos, marigold, and zinnia.
Customers love the creative idea of the kit, as well as its functionality and simplicity. Many said it made the perfect gift for loved ones who love herbs, gardening, and wine. “It was so much fun to plant the seeds in my wine bottle and watch the herbs grow so quickly. Looks so pretty in my kitchen window,” one shopper wrote in a review. “I always thought I couldn’t grow anything, but this product seems foolproof!”
So if you’re waiting for a sign to stock up on your favorite wine, this kit is it.
