The lady who taught the clinic was such a sweetheart and she was so passionate about what she did. Her name is Deanna and if you go into the Anaheim HD Store, I guarantee she will give you some expert advice I just know she has a gorgeous garden at her home. There are some really easy steps to creating your own at home herb garden. My major obstacle, wasn't an issue at all. We live in a townhouse, the backyard is minimal and I'd rather not plant in the ground since it's mostly concrete over there. Anyway, this is the perfect project for all of those issues!
I'm working on a tea garden, I am growing several different types of mints and plan to start making my own infused teas. I can't wait for everything to come together! Thanks Deanna for the inspiration!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8 paint stirrers (FREE at The Home Depot)
- Spray paint or acrylic house paint
- Alphabet stencils or stamps
- A 5-foot, square-frame trellis
- 8 lightweight plastic garden pots with lip (8-inch pots worked well and left room for growth)
- 16 “S” hooks (1½-inch work best)
- 8 cooking herbs of your choice
- Potting soil
Step 2: Stencil the names of the herbs on to the stirrers.
Step 3: Pot your herbs in the plastic pots with potting soil
Step 4: Make sure your herb markers are in place.
Step 5: Grab some “S” hooks.
Step 6: Position two “S” hooks under the lip of a pot, about 1½ inches apart. Clip onto the lattice frame, which should be positioned in the well-lit area where you’d like your herbs.
Step 7: Continue until you’ve finished all of the pots. Give your new garden a watering.
