DIY: Indoor Herb Garden


What you will need

Spice Rack
Gardening Tools
Soil (preferably for vegetables)
Herb seeds of your choice
Watering Can
Grass Paper or Liner (can be found at your local hardware store or nursery)
Something to mark what your herbs are (we used popsicle sticks to add some color)


1. Fill 'Er Up

Cut two long strips of grass paper to fit the long part of the spice rack. We wrapped ours around like a taco and will let the soil and seeds be the filling, this way nothing will drop out of the bottom of the spice rack.

2. Prep to Plant

Cut four smaller squares to line each side of the spice rack. Now your spice rack is ready to plant!

3. Get Dirty

Add soil to both compartments. Do not overflow as you still need to add seeds and water.

4. Go to Seed

Add seeds. Be sure to space far enough apart. Cover with another layer of dirt and pat down.

5. Wet Your Plants

Place your markers to show what herb is going to grow where and lightly water. Now hang or place the spice rack on the counter or window sill and wait for your fresh herbs to grow!

Bonus DIY Idea!

Another version of this concept can be done using a fruit basket.
