Beanpod – the pocket herb garden


Growing your own – that involves turning your garden into the Good Life or getting on a waiting list of 20 years for an allotment. Or picking up the Beanpod.

It’s a pocket-sized (if you have large pockets) garden for your herbs – basil, chives or parsley. Everything you need is here, including the seeds and a disc of compressed peat. All you need is a little water and somewhere to stick it (that pocket might not get the sun you require). In no time at all, you’ve got herbs on tap.

And once you’ve eaten them, you can grow some more. How self-sufficient is that? Available now for £7.95.
