A muffin tray can be the perfect spacing guide for you to plant your seeds! Plus, once you're done, you can harvest your produce to put back in the muffin tray when it's time for baking those gluten free blueberry muffins!

We've all had the odd empty wine bottle lying around well, you could turn that bottle into a slow drip feed for your plants! By plugging in the bottle into the soil, the water will slowly release over the course of an hour or so.
