With summer around the corner, everyone is thinking of adding fresh and delicious herbs to their summer recipes! Herb gardens are a city-dwellers dream, and perfect garden for small kitchens and patios. It's so much fun to be able to trim your own herb's and add them to any dish you're cooking. Making it that much more special! All you need is a pot, some soil, herb (of your choice) and an abundance of sunshine!
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Herb (of your choice)
We used our Medium Modern Cork Planter for our DIY, find it here in the shop!
Start by choosing your planter, it's best to use one with great drainage. Our Cork Planters are perfect since they are naturally porous and are able to absorb the water.
First add soil to the bottom of the pot using a trowel or your hands. We chose organic potting soil from our local hardware store.
Decide what kind of herb you want to use. We picked lemon thyme for it's versatility for cooking! Some other great herbs are basil, rosemary, lavender, oregano, parsley or sage. Remove your plant from its container and loosen the roots of the plant so it can have room to grow.
Place your plant inside of your planter.
Pour more soil around your plant to fill in any gaps, filling the planter with soil to the rim.
Gently push down the soil around the plant, packing it in so the plant is secure.
Tah-dah. you're done! Make sure to place your new herb garden in a well lit place. They love tons of sunshine! Now you can easily snip a couple of pieces off of your plant when you're making your favorite cocktail or dish. Enjoy!
