Mason Jar Herb Garden


I love decorating with plants in my home, and I've been wanting a little herb garden for my kitchen. I came up with a cute DIY solution.

Mason jars just belong in the kitchen, and I thought they would be the perfect potting solution for my herbs. (And herbs in the kitchen smell amazing!)

And don't forget drainage! I added small rocks to the bottoms of my jars before planting the herbs.

      Hi Gat13754152

      The beauty of Herbs is that they require little to no attention! They thrive in soils that don't have fertilizer mixed in w/them. They're also survivors of 'drought' conditions, that said when you water your herbs use only a little bit of water. Watch your plants and see if you may need to increase the water due to where they're located (think of sun exposure, A/C heat vents etc.) Above all else ~ have FUN!!
