The Botanist Gin herb planter

With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time than now to stock up on your gin collection and I've found a very cool gift pack from one of my favourite gin brands. The Botanist Herb Planter pack contains an easy to use herb planter crafted from the iconic bottle. The self-watering herb planter can be used to grow garnishes from seed or to house pre-potted plants for a plentiful supply of local, seasonal garnishes for your G&T. Its experimental nature encourages you be the botanist with seasonal and foraged garnishes or cocktails.
