“David Latimer first planted his bottle garden in 1960 and last watered it in 1972 before tightly sealing it shut ‘as an experiment’. The hardy spiderworts plant inside has grown to fill the 10-gallon container by surviving entirely on recycled air, nutrients and water”
I was also amused by this quote near the end of the article:
“Organic gardener Bob Flowerdew was less enthusiastic. ‘It’s wonderful but not for me, thanks. I can’t see the point. I can’t smell it, I can’t eat it,’”
What a poor, modern, utilitarian, arrogant mentality is reflected in that response.
