*** I do CUSTOM ORDERS and I can ship you as many as you like for your big event or to cover everyone on your gift list! I've done orders as big as 100 hydroponic bottles. :) ***

** Please contact me for bulk orders or wholesale orders. Etsy does NOT calculate shipping correctly on LARGE ORDERS. **

- Please use the drop down menu to select which great seeds you want in your complete kit. I have organic and non-organic seeds and I even offer cat grass seeds!


(Option 1): EASY TO USE COMPLETE KIT:
* Gift Box is optional- choose the gift box option using above drop down menu.
* 1 Hydroponic up-cycled wine bottle. (~8" tall by ~2.75" wide) - Handcrafted. Specify green, clear or brown based on availability or I can choose a beautiful one for you :)
* Clay beads - soil less way to give the plant stability.
* 1 Small package of seeds - You pick from a great variety!
* Rock wool- a soft little cube that professional hydroponic growers love to use to start their seeds off right. The roots grow right through it!
* Chalkboard label and stick of chalk - Great for labeling your garden each time you change from growing oregano, to basil, to cat grass.
* Hydroponic fertilizer - mmmm food for your plants.
* Wool wick to bring the water directly to the plants roots.
* EASY to follow directions.
- Unlike some sellers I ship my kit ready to use! Just drop a seed in the pre-made planting hole, add water and start growing. As a teacher I taught hydroponics to my students and even students with a black thumb were amazed at how successful they could be with hydroponics.

*** NO NEED TO TAKE MY WORD FOR IT. HERE'S WHAT MY BUYERS ARE SAYING: ***

* OMG this is just lovely. I have planted it (very easy to do) and put it in my kitchen window. I can't wait for my basil to sprout up. Thanks much.

* Beautiful!!!!! seeds are already starting and it has only been 5 days!!!! Great customer service! Thank you!!!
Communication was awesome!! Shipping was fast and packaging was outstanding!!! Product is better than described online. Beautiful reuse of liquor and wine bottles. Can't wait for herbs to start growing!!!!

* The wine garden was exactly what was pictured. It has very easy to understand directions with it. I got the wine garden with catnip seeds as a gift for a family gift exchange and I know a few people who will want it. Nicole was very helpful and got back to me very quickly. I would definitely recommend! :)

* Loved that the bubble wrap packaging did a great job protecting the bottles! Nicole worked with me within minutes of placing my order to ensure I got exactly what I was looking for. No sharp edges, and it looks great on my kitchen windowsill. I bought just the empty bottles as I had already purchased the herbs beforehand. Overall, a wonderful product. I will be adding to my collection with the complete herb kit in the near future!

How Long Until My Order Ships?

* Contact me if you need your item shipped ASAP. For non urgent shipments I need 3-5 business days to personally handcraft your order and then transit time of 2-4 days for Priority Mail and 1-3 days for Express Mail. (Steel address planters take 1-2 weeks production time)

* I offer FAST USPS Priority Mail, cheaper USPS Ground or FedEx at checkout. 

* Again please contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 business days since I personally hand make each and every order myself. Sometimes I can ship sooner if I can get my little ones to bed early :)

* Unless you request otherwise, I try to ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend.

 

How much is shipping?

* To get a shipping quote please add one or more of my handcrafted items to your shopping cart then proceed to checkout. This will give you several shipping options. 

* PLEASE CONTACT ME if you are ordering 2+ items and are quoted > $29 to ship 2 alcohol bottle items. Also contact me if you are charged >$15 to ship 2 drinking glasses.

* Live plant items must ship with Priority Mail.

* Small items under 1 pound can ship with slow but cheaper USPS First Class Mail.  No insurance is included with First Class Mail but you can upgrade to Priority Mail which includes up to $100 in shipping insurance.

* FedEx or UPS is slower than USPS Priority Mail, but may be cheaper for orders needing larger boxes or orders that are heavy. 

** The online shipping calculator is usually correct.  If you are placing a large order with many items you can email me and ask me to review your shipping quote.  I may need several days to review your shipping quote for accuracy.  For a shipping quote review please email me a screen shot showing all items in your order, the shipping rates being quoted and the address the items are being shipped to. With this information I can look for cheaper shipping and get back to you in a few days. 

* FYI Shipping companies are now charging “Dimensional Shipping” rates.  This means that the rate is often based on the box size even if the box doesn’t weigh very much.  I may send you a 3 pound box but they will charge box of us for a 13 pound shipment because that is the rate they have assigned to that size box.  I use the most economical boxing I can but my items need lots of padding to protect from breakage.

 

I want a bottle I don’t see in your shop:

* Do you have a favorite alcohol bottle? Contact me to see if I have your favorite bottle in stock. My husband complains that my bottle collection takes up too much room! I have lots of bottles that don’t get listed because I only have 1 of them or because my little ones keep me too busy to put all my items online.

* Do you have a special bottle that is just sitting around taking up space? You can mail me your favorite bottle and I would be happy to make it into the perfect gift by turning your favorite bottle into a soap dispenser, succulent planter, vase, candle holder, serving dish, snack bowl, candy dish, ash tray, pendant light shade or something you saw on Pinterest …. Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders!

 

About my bottles:

* Remember to ZOOM IN on my pictures, look at the edges and see what a difference professional machining makes!

* I also apply a surface protectant to the bottle itself that repels fingerprints, hard water minerals... Giving the bottle a brighter appearance and making fingerprints easy to wipe away.

* My bottles come from friends, country clubs and restaurants. I take pride in what I make and only ship bottles I would use as gifts. We are giving new life to a used bottle that otherwise would have spent nearly 1 million years in a landfill! True! If the quality of the label or the color of the foil on the bottle neck (when included) is important please let me know and I will do my best to find a bottle that is just right for you.

 

Can I pick my bottle?

* You can pick some aspects:


- Use the drop down menu to select if you want a drainage slit in your bottle. Plants will do better if you add a drainage hole.


- (For Wine Bottles) label on or label off? Please use drop down menu to select label on or off.


- Wine bottles come in various shades of brown, green, clear... I will select a beautiful colored bottle for you unless you send me a specification. Wine bottles maybe cork top or screw top, red wine bottle, white wine bottle or a champagne bottle in shape (based on availability).


* If you have a strong preference please send me your preferences in the "NOTES" section during CHECKOUT. Bottle colors/bottle shapes are subject to availability and there may be an extra charge for special requests such as a particular brand, bottle shape & glass color.  I have to charge a fee for such requests because it can take me a very long time to unpack all my bottles to find one that meets all of your specifications.  

 

Custom and personalized orders

* For a custom order just email me with what you need. I’ll type it up as a custom order that you can purchase just like a normal listing.


* Do you have a favorite bottle or are you looking to give a mind blowing gift? I can use one of my bottles (or you can mail me your bottle) to make them the perfect gift. Perhaps turn a favorite bottle or brand of alcohol into a soap dispenser, succulent planter, vase, candle holder, serving dish, snack bowl, candy dish, ash tray, pendant light shade or something you saw on Pinterest …. Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders.


* Want to buy wholesale? The more you buy the bigger the discount.  Email me with how many you need, when you need them and your shipping zip code.

 

How do I order a custom order or get a discount buying wholesale?

* For a custom order please email me with your needs. I’ll type it up as a custom order that you can purchase just like a normal listing.

* Do you have a favorite bottle or are you looking to give a mind blowing gift? I can use one of my bottles (or you can mail me your bottle) to make them the perfect gift.

How do you cut the bottles?

* I cut your bottle using professional lapidary equipment. Some of which I inherited from my beloved late grandpa Pop pop. As a teenage he started teaching me. Now I'm grown with children of my own. I'm using what he taught me to make a living while I take a break from teaching to be with my little ones. His professional equipment and and my attention to detail is why my bottles have such beautiful, safe edges.

PLEASE ZOOM IN on the photos and see how beautiful the edges are on my professionally cut bottles! I take pride in my work and this is a gift you will be proud to send.

FYI this glass was not originally intentioned for it's new purpose in life so PLEASE HAND WASH AND DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER. Enjoy!
