If you don’t have enough space for a garden in your backyard, but you want to add greenery there, just make a side opening in an old glass bottle, and put some soil and seeds or a plant inside the bottle.
8. Old Cans as Plant Holders
Use an empty can to make plant holder. Wash them and remove their lids with a can opener, and then paint them with your favorite color.
Cans will probably require several coats of paint to completely cover their original text, color and logo.
Make sure your cans are dry before filling them with soil and add some herb inside. You will quickly make a perfect herb garden in your small space.
