EASY DIY HERB GARDEN

EASY DIY HERB GARDEN

It is spring time!  If you are in Northeast Ohio it may not seem like spring yet but its coming.  Time to fix up the garden and plant those flowers outside!  Or if you are like me and you know nothing about gardening, its time to pretend like you know all about it. If so this is the perfect fake it until you make it herb garden!
When Eric and I were doing the typical last minute gift search, we were walking through Michaels and I saw this box.  When I saw it, I just knew that I should turn it into a herb garden!  I am officially obsessed with chalk boards too.  I may be a few years late to the game but everything I do I want to be a chalkboard!
This herb garden is so easy to make and it looks so cute.  Perfect for your outdoor table’s center piece while growing your fresh herbs.  The herbs in this garden are parsley, basil and cilantro.  I don’t know if you use those regularly but I am sure you can find a recipe just for your fresh herbs!
So without further ado, here is how to make your own herb garden!

Supplies

  • Box of your choice
  • Drill
  • Your favorite herbs
  • Dirt

Instructions

  1. Drill a hole or two in the bottom of your box.  The holes are so the water can drain out if it rains.
  2. Put a layer of dirt on the bottom
  3. Place herbs in the box
  4. Fill in around the herbs and fill up the remainder of the box with herbs.
  5. Water your brand new herb garden!

Wrap Up

We gave this adorable herb garden to my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.  I just hope it doesn’t turn out that she has a brown thumb because I hope to have dinner at her house made with these herbs!  I think it was a pretty successfully gift if I do say so myself.
