What you’ll need

  • Clear 2-liter soda bottle
  • Small flowerpot
  • Potting soil
  • Seeds
  • Saucer
  • Craft stick marker

Helpful Tip: Consider planting herbs, such as parsley and basil, that can be transplanted outside once the weather warms, or grass, which grows fast and is fun to trim with scissors.

How to make it

  1. Cut the top from a clear 2-liter soda bottle.
  2. Find a flowerpot that fits inside the dome. Fill the pot with potting soil, then plant the seeds according to the packet directions.
  3. Place the pot on a saucer and poke in a craft stick marker. Slip the dome over the pot. Be sure to water the soil when it looks dry.

    If you have a really old house like I do, they love to sit on the radiator as they are starting out. We have radiators right in front of the south facing windows, so indoor started seedlings go absolutely crazy!!
