I love this time of the year where I can start growing things again and enjoy that faint smell of spring in the air. All the flowers, my garden and especially herbs. I know many of you won’t see the warmer weather for another month or so. But if you are ready to “get yer hands dirty” now, how about making a simple little kitchen herb garden.

Items I used to make this:

I choose herbs that I know will do well indoors like basil, parsley, chives, rosemary, oregano, thyme, lemon balm, and different mints. Rosemary is really hardy and will grow into a bush if you let it. They are also great to train into topiaries. I love that this potting trio already has the holes in the bottom of each pot.

Sometimes I will start herbs by seeds and grow in the garden, but for this project, I needed grown herbs in small pots you can find just about anywhere in the spring. I did remove the biodegradable pot the herbs came in so I could fill in the extra space with dirt.

After planting the herbs, I just added the name of the herb on the chalkboard tags with my chalk pen and secured each one on the pot with a clothespin.

This project took just minutes to put together and what a great idea for a new neighbor just moving in. There are so many different types of containers to use, such as Mason Jars, baskets, small terra cotta pots, vintage cans, etc. Just make sure you put small rocks in the bottom of the containers to help with drainage that doesn’t have holes or line with plastic. I have also made a Mason Jar Herb Garden and Recycled Can Herb Pots using the same process.

Herbs don’t like their feet wet or sitting in water, so just keep the soil damp. When the plants get too large for these smaller pots, they are ready to be transplanted to your garden or larger pots outdoors.
