Bottle Garden: What are the Best Plants to Grow in a Bottle?

If you love gardening, either outdoor or indoor, you may as well try gardening in a bottle! Bottle gardening will not only save you space, but it will also make it less of a hassle for you as you can just leave it beside a south-facing window with adequate water/moisture and it will grow on its own.

What is a Bottle Garden and Why Should You Try Gardening in a Bottle?

Bottle gardens are like a terrarium – wherein you could produce a landscape in a small container – at the same time, you could grow your own food by just using bottles, seeds, grow media, sunlight, and water of course. It not only saves you space, but also saves you time, effort, and gardening supplies. If you’re someone who works a lot or is just someone who’s always outside and don’t have much time to tend the garden, then bottle gardens are perfect for you. Below, we will indicate which are the best plants to grow in a bottle.

Best Plants to Grow in a Bottle: Herbs

Most herbs can be grown in a bottle garden, but the most common plants to grow in a bottle are oregano, basil, parsley, dill, and rosemary. You can check out our Culinary Classics Bottle Garden Kit if you want to try growing your own herbs in a bottle. This bottle garden kit includes Sweet Basil seeds, Dill seeds, French Parsley seeds, grow media, replacement inserts where you can place the grow media, detailed instructions, germination stickers, product labels, and a cute and very giftable packaging.
