Grow an indoor garden in a bottle cap

You don’t have space for an herb garden, you say? Well not anymore. Just grab a soda bottle, pop off the top, and voila! Your plot is ready for action. All you need now are some basil seeds and a little tablet of compressed dry soil, both of which you can get from Merry Shop, a Japanese company that’s taken urban gardening to a whole new level of small. Just stick the tablet inside your bottle cap and dab on some water, then sit back and dream of homemade pesto.
