Hanging baskets powered by Solar Energy - Quirky!

Spotted last week over at Solar Knowledge - the quirkiest use of solar power yet.

A solar powered hanging basket rotator.

Now before you collapse in fits of giggles, It does actually make sense. By evenly distributing all sides of the basket to the sun, the makers claim you'll benefit from a healthier basket.

This could be especially 'fruitful' if you're growing herbs or even salads in your basket - higher yield means less spent at the shops. Home produce ultimately impacts on the carbon footprint of buying such things.

I'm indebted to Solar Knowledge for bringing this little gadget (which costs around £18) to our attention. Click here to read more.
