A wonderful idea for growing a herb garden by Postcardem that can even inspire people to re-look at their balconies- window sills... etc.. to make them into little green islands!
"Leagues beyond just-add-water trinkets, this vegetable ink-based greeting card sends sentiments - with seeds. Just pop open the card, water the base, and sprinkle its packet over the diorama. In just a few days, you'll have unruly sprouts of "Lepidium sativum" (that's watercress) furling through the paper arches of your mini botanical garden. "
Instead of watercress for those of us in India, we can try growing Coriander - Dhaniyaa, or Fenugreek - Methi as they grow pretty fast! You can also check out the Postcarden website at http://www.postcarden.com/shop/
