Hey everyone, It’s spring! I just wish it felt like it in my area! I want to be out digging in the dirt but Mother Nature says, NOT YET! So, I’m gathering up my Mason jars and creating a fresh herb garden to use inside now and take outside in several weeks. I can stick it in a sunny window and snip some wonderful fresh herbs until it warms up enough for the whole little herb garden to go outside. Good for my body and soul! This pretty little herb garden only took 10 minutes to make! Easy peasy and perfect for this time of year! Let’s gather our materials and get busy!
It’s 10 MINUTED DECOR, THE MASON JAR EDITION! My 10 MINUTED DECOR blogging buddies and I have some fun ways to use Mason Jars in your home! Make sure to visit the other blogs at the end of this post.
I used wide mouth quart jars. I really could have probably used smaller ones, but I wanted to put them in this tall wire basket.
- mason jars
- potting soil
I worked on our side porch table to create the herb garden.
Fill the mason jars half full with potting soil…
Take the herb out of the pot. If the soil around the herb is too big to fit in the jar gently massage some of the soil away from the roots.
Plant the herb in the mason jar.
Water the plant in the jar. Be careful to not water the plant in too heavily. The soil should not be soggy. You will know when your herbs need water if you stick your finger 1 inch into the soil and it is dry.If the soil in the bottom of the mason jar looks soggy or muddy stop watering it. And if it looks soaked… repot.
Wouldn’t this herb garden look adorable lined up on a windowsill?
I found a wire basket in my basement and it contained my herb garden perfectly!
Now I can snip fresh herbs and enjoy them recipes and drinks! I hope you will give this easy, fast and inexpensive diy!
