Even though I don’t have space to plant a vegetable garden, I make it a point to plant herbs every year. I like to have fresh herbs for flavoring dishes (like my homemade herb butters or infused liquor recipes), and they look and smell so pretty. I’ve tried various herb gardens in the past, but I was never in love with the overall display, or the garden was in a place that didn’t get enough sun. This year I decided to try something different: a DIY Vertical Herb Garden.
Pretty cute, right?
This project was actually inspired by a hanging file organizer I picked up at HomeGoods. I was walking around the store looking for inspiration, and my idea light bulb lit up when I saw this guy sitting on the shelf. With some ingenuity, soil, and potted herbs, I quickly turned this ordinary office accessory into an unusual. space-saving herb garden. DIY Vertical Herb Garden for the win!
My new herb garden hangs on the wall between my garage doors where it should get plenty of morning sun. Plus, since it’s so tall, I was able to fill it with 16 herb plants. (I realize that’s probably excessive, but I like instant impact.)
