Indoor Herb Garden
Welcome April! You don’t have to worry about any April fools jokes here, I am pretty awful at them so I won’t even attempt it! Since it is Spring and the weather has been pretty perfect outside these last few days, I have been really into brightening up the house with plants and lots of greens here and there. I shared on Instagram over the weekend that I finally found myself a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree at none other than…Walmart! I was beyond excited about that, and I hope to keep that beauty alive for as long as I can! (fingers crossed!) I have also been trying to grow herbs from the seed for a few weeks but failed miserably, so along with the Fiddle Leaf Fig I also bought a few pots of already grown herbs.
I bought two pots of Lavender to set in my living room, and for my kitchen I bought Rosemary, Italian Oregano, and Chocolate Mint. I am so excited to use them fresh for cooking! I won’t lie, not sure what I’ll do with the Chocolate Mint but it smells so good I couldn’t pass it up.
I planted the Oregano and Mint in some dark brown clay pots I had, and the Rosemary in a little white Ikea planter. My windowsill in our kitchen is not near big enough for me to set all of these on, so I used a round basket and made my own little indoor herb garden on the countertop.
I made the indoor herb garden tags by simply using some Wood Craft Sticks I found at Michaels, and my stamp set I got at the Target dollar spot. Super easy and cute! And you could paint the sticks whichever color you’d like, I think they would even look awesome if you used chalkboard paint and wrote the names on them. I chose to leave them natural.
Do you grow any herbs inside? Which ones are your favorite?
Don’t forget to follow along on Facebook & Instagram for extras!
These are so cute and so economical!!
Love the basket, love the craft sticks, love it all! I am always looking for tutorials on indoor gardening, thank you for sharing!
Thank YOU for visiting! And for the sweet comment 🙂 Have a great night!
Greatreat idea! I too have a black thumb :+(, but will try again. Did you get the chocolate mint at Walmart?
Thanks! Yes, I actually got all of the herbs at Walmart! They are still alive so far, I’m getting better!
Put some of the chocolate mint leaves in with the coffee grounds when brewing coffee if you drink coffee. Nice little punch of flavor & aroma.
So cute, natural & simple!!! <3 it & Happy April, Ashley!!!
Happy April to you too Paige! Thanks for the sweet comment! Natural and simple is what I love!
Oh! Loving the look of this. I bought a ton of herb seeds recently and have been trying to decide how I want to go about it…My kitchen windowsill is already full of plants and succulents so I am going to do a tray and trio for my dining room table centerpiece. I like this look and those markers you made. Good work.
