I will be the first to admit that I have a brown thumb. I have killed
pretty much every plant I have owned. I’m usually too scatter-brained to remember to water them. But I have a reason to keep this herb garden alive! Herbs in the store are usually at least $2.50 and they go bad fast and I can’t count how many times they have been out of basil…only the best herb EVER! So I decided to plant an herb garden to keep in my kitchen. I planted basil and oregano and plan to plant rosemary and cilantro too.
Miracle-Gro made it really easy for a garden loser like me! This project cost me $15 and it took about 15 minutes. An hour if you include going to the store!
To create this cute herb garden, you will need:
- My FREE printables, for personal use only
- Moisture Control Potting Mixby Miracle-Gro (this controls the amount of water your plant receives, so no more guess work!)
- Starting Herb Plant of your choice
- A terra cotta pot for each plant
- Popsicle Sticks or bamboo sticks
- Glue Gun
All you need to do is plant your herb according to the Miracle-Gro instructions. Then print out the printables, cut them with a 2″ hole punch (mine is by ek) and attach it to the top of the Popsicle stick with glue. Stick it in the planter and you’re good to go!
The Gro Project has tons of great ideas for all your planting needs. Also, be sure to check out their fun garden projects Pinterest page! Find out more about the Gro project here:
