Vertical Herb Garden for a Small Porch
My front porch isn't all that big but it gets great sun for potted plants. So I created a vertical herb garden that doubles as Spring decor this year. Click HERE for the entire background story!
Vertical decor works best on my front porch, as space is limited. So, when I spotted this standing shower caddy (which was in really good shape) at a secondhand home store, I decided it would work wonderfully as a vertical herb garden!
After successfully cleaning it ( Check out how I cleaned it HERE! ), I decided to spray paint it a dark bronze to set it off nicely against the pale colors of my front porch.
There- that's perfect! It's really a pretty color up close- with a little shimmer and a great vintage look.
But back to the herb garden! I successfully transplanted my seedlings (from Phase 1 of my herb garden series) into 5" pots which were a great fit in my shower-caddy-turned-vertical-herb-garden.
And there you have it! A vertical herb garden that doubles as a vintage-y Spring vignette on my front porch. The caddy is ideal for this and actually, I'd love to find another one just like it. :) Happy Spring!

if you want another just like they make them in black so you wouldn't have to paint it. by the way great idea!
love it! Maybe I could hang a shower caddy? I'll try &let you know :)
Is this shower caddy marketed for the shower? Looks like it would be dangerous in the shower. Are they sold online?
Could you use coconut liners?
