Found this cute gift idea on National Geographic Kids website. Would make a cute gift! I think a lot of American's are creating their own gardens. This would make a great start!
Herb Garden Kit
Give a "green" gift to a friend or family member. These cool kits are great for every occasion!
YOU WILL NEED:
Small herb plants such as thyme, basil, and rosemary
Sandwich bag full of small stones
Trowel or large spoon
Homemade labels for herbs (we made them by gluing craft foam onto wooden skewers)
Large flower pot to display all the items
HOW TO PLANT YOUR HERB GARDEN
Cover the bottom of the flowerpot with stones for drainage.
Fill the pot partway with soil.
Carefully remove plants from their containers and position them in the larger pot, leaving some space between each plant.
Water until the soil is damp, then place the flowerpot in a sunny spot.
Water the herbs when the soil dries out—about once a week. Then watch your garden grow.
