I’ve wanted to have a go at making a DIY potted herb garden ever since we moved into our house and I’m happy to report that I’ve finally done it!
It took me a while to decide what kind of herb situation I wanted as there are so many different options on Pinterest! I played around with using an old palette for a while and then came to my senses and went for the easier potted version which I spoke about in one of my earlier garden posts. I also enlisted a helper so we had the whole thing finished in about 10 minutes 🙂
We bought all of our supplies from B&M Homestores – I coudn’t believe the range of plants they had for really great prices. For 3 herb plants, a spade, compost, 2 post and plant tags the total came to less than £15!
First we filled the larger pot with some compost and then figured out the position of the top pot. We then took 2 of the plants, broke up the roots a bit, and then planted them around the edge. We then added the smaller pot, half-filled it with compost and then placed the 3rd plant in the centre. I don’t know if you’re supposed to break up the roots but that’s something my Grandma always told me to do when I helped in her garden as a young sprog.
So we have oregano and thyme on the bottom and rosemary on the top. I think it looks great and we’ve already been using the herbs in our meals 🙂 I tell you the thyme sprinkled over a piece of salmon and baked in the over with some butter is absolutely delicious!
