This mini hanging garden is suitable for either indoor or outdoor use. It is simple, easy to make, free, and constructed from 100% recycled materials. It works particularly well as a seed starter or for slow-growing plants. You can grow as many or as few plants as you would like and can make the ropes as long or short as you need.
This is also a fantastic project for kids--we use a method similar to this in our preschool to grow seedlings and the kids love it because it's just their size! Once completed, this mini garden can be hung up in a window to make a pretty living curtain for any room.
The materials I list for this project make one rope of planters, but obviously you can make more to suit your needs.

- 1 plastic grocery bag
