Channel your inner green thumb with a hydrogarden that sprouts from a repurposed wine bottle. The set comes with clay pebbles, a wool wick, plant nutrients, a cork coaster, and either organic basil, organic chive, or heirloom mint seeds -- everything you need to grow your own herbs quickly and year-round. The bottle is not only attractive; it allows sunshine to penetrate through.

This idea is amazing; you can get shoe organizers at the dollar store, and growing herbs vertically keeps them away from both weeds and pests. I can hang this from my shed door! Could also be great for flowers--imagine a "wall of flowers" on a patio or fence :)
aeroponic lettuce and herb growing at Chicago airport. the fertilised water wets the roots inside this tower by spraying a fine mist on the roots. this is all automated and produces food much faster, bigger and tastier than other hydroponic systems. with LED lights, they can grow inside year round. NASA is designing this for space travel.
