From adding flavors to your food or being diffused as Essential Oils, herbs are pretty versatile plants. They are easily grown indoors or out, and can go straight from garden to table. They can grow in almost any soil type, don’t require much added fertilizer, and tend to not be bothered by pests or insects.
Some of the most popular herbs include:
While outdoor gardens have more space, are able to produce more usable product, and are sometimes more flavorful; indoor gardens have the advantages of a year-round growing season, the ease of access, and the fact that you don’t have to weed them. Today I want to show you 5 different ways to display your indoor Herbs.
- Window Walls
Trying to save space? Use the wall around your kitchen window and a few planters. These will be out of the way, and will receive light from the nearby window.
2. Little Labels
No matter what type of pot you use, it’s always important to label your plants. If using the seed packet is not your style, try these cute labeling techniques.
3. Delightful Drinkware
Mason jars aren’t just for jam, and your drinking glasses aren’t just for tea! With these containers you’re able to see what’s going on ‘underground’. You’re definitely not stuck just lining them on the counter, either – try mounting them to a wooden rack.
4. SOUPer-Duper Display
Instead of throwing out your old tin soup and coffee cans use them as planters. You’re going green by growing your own plants, why not recycle, too!
5. Terrific Terrariums
We’ve talked about terrariums before, but this is a great growing habitat for herbs. They come in various shapes and sizes, so this is definitely able to be personalized.
Herbs are a great starter for the beginner gardener or something to add for the most experienced, so get growing!
