Have you ever thought you would never have the space to plant your own herbs for the kitchen and home? Do you love in a tiny flat and all you have is a small balcony or window sill? Then this next idea has got you in mind. Mama Wren from The Vintage Wren blog was helped with this simple afternoon project by her sister, so its easy enough for two ladies to do (and by easy I mean, you can fit it into a free hour or two). All it requires is a couple of galvanised containers, a hammer and nail to punch drainage holes, potting soil and the herbs of your choice.
The project is small enough that you can bring the containers in if your winters are harsher and more frosty. Go on over to The Vintage Wren to see more about her little summer herb garden and the other ideas she has for growing herbs at home.
Little Tip: When planting your herbs think about where they originate from, to do this find out what region features the herb most in its cooking, like rosemary in Mediterranean cooking, so when you plant your own rosemary, don’t make the soil mixture too rich as it naturally grows in quite harsh conditions.
You can get galvanised containers in all sorts of sizes like the 2 gallon bucket or a set of three flower pots and saucer for your window sill, potting soil and herbs from Amazon.com or your local nursery.
