Of course, we encourage our customers to always reuse our carton bottles in conventional ways, like transporting your daily water. However, we also love to encourage you to get a little creative and save yourself a few pennies at the same time! So, why not give our Grow-Your-Own Herb Garden a go?
You can create little herb pots from either our 500ml cartons or our 1L cartons, but we recommend using our 24-pack of 500ml carton bottles so you can create a gorgeously symmetrical little herb garden with a wide variety of the herbs of your choice.
Want to know how to do it? Here is our 4-step guide, and a quick video to get you started!
Step 1: Make sure every little bit of your natural mineral water is finished, and then carefully cut your 500ml carton approximately in half.
Step 2: Take the top half of your carton (the half with the lid) and turn it upside down so it resembles a funnel. Then, put it inside the bottom half of your carton so you have a small little pot.
Step 3: Take a small pebble or stone and place it in the upturned lid at the bottom of your pot. This helps to keep your pot weighted down and upright.
Step 4: Add soil and compost to your herb pot and give it a little sprinkling of H2O. Then, plant your seeds and put your pot where it can get some sunlight. Now just watch it grow!
Our favourite herbs to plant are basil, coriander, rosemary, mint, sage, oregano and thyme - let us know your favourites and any recipes you like making with them. We hope you enjoy your little herb garden as much as we enjoy ours, and please tag us on Instagram (@drinkscubed) to show us how you got on!
NB: You can also put cacti or any other small plants in your WATER³ plant pot!
