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.

Add local stone at a depth of two inches in the bottom of each cavity

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:

  • Mint-Perennial
  • Parsley-Biennial
  • Rosemary-Annual
  • And an Aleo Vera succulent.

Some other herbs to be considered:

  • Greek Oregano
  • Thyme
  • Thyme
  • Chives
  • Winter Savory
  • Sage
  • Tarragon
  • Marjoram

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.
