Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With Café jars and Afghan seeds and pretty hooches all in a row!

Here’s how you can make a terrarium fit for a hooch:
  1. Find a good sized bottle
  2. Use it upright or turn it on its side
  3. Layer damp sand and small pebbles on the floor of the bottle. Consider a layer of activated charcoal to absorb any smells and a layer of moss to keep the soil from settling. Add your soil. Choose seeds from small plants with similar requirements that can stand a good deal of humidity.
  4. Place your mini-greenhouse in medium sun and tend it carefully.
