How To Make Your Own Hanging Herb Garden For Your Patio – DIY

With some elbow grease, fresh idea’s, and fresh herbs, something cool is going to happen this summer.

I really wanted to test out my “green thumb” this summer by creating then growing a garden on my little patio. Before, when I was gardening I had a yard, with lots of area to plant, but that is currently not the case. With that in mind, Tess Taylor was nice enough to take an old palette, and made an amazing shelve to hold my herbs up, keep them in the sunshine.

I was a tad nervous about growing herbs because I have never attempted it before. With a some research I found a great website with a tone of info!Doityourself.com made the best point on why to plant an herb garden and it is why I chose to try it out…

“Planting and maintaining a herb garden will save you money and provide you with fresh herbs to use while cooking. Herbs are noticeably fragrant; freshening and perfuming the atmosphere around where they are planted.”

Also, the herb plants are pretty to look at on my back porch. Yet, when I was first thinking about growing an herb garden I wasn’t sure if I could. Then I discovered the website Bonnieplants.com and they said…

“For beginning gardeners, the best way to start is with a small herb garden. Herbs tend to be among the easiest plants to grow and are a terrific addition to both your landscape and your table.”
