Niki Jabbour’s Inspired Cocktail Garden Idea

Posted in Botany, Featured, Make This | 2 comments

Who cares if it’s February?  I want my basil mojito and I want it now.   Niki Jabbour, author of a new book called The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener, offers these two brilliant bartender-inspired ideas for sheltering herbs and any other tender young green thing.  Modeled after the classic Victorian glass cloche or bell jar, these repurposed wine glasses do the job perfectly, creating a miniature greenhouse that keeps the plant warm and protected from the elements.

And for larger plants:  the punch bowl!  Brilliant.
