At-Home Herb Garden Planter Tips
It may be the first day of spring, but we are still a long way away from planting season in Northern Michigan.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t start something!
Here are some ideas from a expert gardener Allison Jackson, from Rent-A-Gardener.
She is using a wooden tool caddy she purchased a few years ago, spray-painted them to update the look and drilled four small holes in the bottom of each cavity to allow for drainage.
Then potting mix two-thirds of the way up.
Dig and put a single herb in each section and fill them top soil.
Water each section and top them off with moss to finish the look.
Herbs she used:
- And an Aleo Vera succulent.
Some other herbs to be considered:
- Greek Oregano
- Winter Savory
Some herbs are perennial and can be transplanted to an in ground exterior garden space. They will grow in next spring and for seasons to come.
