Garden in a Juice Box

I used to scramble around every June, as we got close to the end of the school year, trying to think of clever, inexpensive, easy gifts for teachers and school support staff. I would love to give each of them a car, or a lavish vacation--I respect, and admire what they do so much--but since I can't do that, I give container gardens. Some years, I have given herbs in a pot tied with a raffia ribbon and some years gardening tools or gloves.
Here are 5 Container Gardens For Teacher Gifts with links to instructions on how to make them.
