Cinder Block Herb Garden


Being limited on space in our raised garden gave us the motivation to seek out an alternative way to plant our herbs. What better way than putting some old cinder blocks to good use!
We started out with 6 blocks, then decided a 7th was needed in order to maximize the amount of sun some of the herbs would need and finally worked out a configuration that would benefit all!
We didn't glue anything down, just set the blocks on top of each other making sure that the weight was distributed evenly all around so that it didn't topple over in a strong wind. If you did want to secure the blocks together you could use something like PL Premium to adhere them.
Using empty plastic pots from shrubs that we had purchased, we just transplanted the herbs anddropped the pots in the holes of the blocks. Some fit perfect - a couple, not so much. But it works!
We planted Basil, Sage, Dill & Oregano.
Check out the blog for the full rundown & some tips on herbs!
