I am NO green thumb. As a matter of fact, my expectations weren’t even that high when I decided to try growing a DIY Mini Herb Garden.
I figured I’d throw this garden together, and within days it would fail.
To my surprise, the little thing is just a growing, and growing.
Honestly, I LOVE fresh herbs. There’s just something about fresh herbs in recipes that is unbeatable. I can’t count the $$$$ I’ve spent buying fresh herbs at the store, only for it to go “old,” because I didn’t use it fast enough.
Now… I just hop off my back deck, grab what I need for a dish, and I’m good to go. Talk about fresh, and it saves me some “green.”
DIY Mini Herb Garden
I started out with a small plant of each:
I purchased these at a local home improvement store.
Mini Herb Garden Supplies:
- Beverage Tub
- Potting Soil (I selected soil that was geared for herbs)
- Herb Plants
How To Make A Mini Herb Garden
- Take a drill, and drill about 3 holes in the bottom of your beverage tub so water can drain.
- Fill tub with potting soil, about 3/4 of the way up.
- Put each plant in to the soil, covering the roots with more soil.
- Pat soil around each plant base, so the plant is secure.
- Water the plants according to the plants suggested directions. They usually come with tags, giving instructions on how to care for your plants.
SIDE NOTE: I have heard (after I already planted mine) that you should really put “mint,” in it’s own pot, because it will overpower the other herbs and it requires a different amount of water.
My mint does seem to be doing well the way it is. Actually… all of my herbs are turning out way better than I thought they would.
Another DIY success!
