Although the aquafarm can be placed in a variety of places, it makes a great addition to the kitchen for quick access to fresh herbs such as basil, mint, and spinach.



Butterfly Puddler: It’s tough to go wrong with butterflies. They’re beautiful and helpful to the pollinating process in the garden. Butterfly puddlers are a great way to attract these lovely guests into your mom’s garden, and give them a place to rest so she can enjoy their beauty.
