- 5 terra-cotta planters
- Soilless potting mix
- Assorted herbs
You can find used pots at the Thrift Store. You can substitute the two pots that will be placed upside down with any other conteiner, like a paint can, for example. If you want your pots to be the same color, you can paint them.
- Place largest planter in the location selected for the herb garden. Center 1 smaller pot within, upside down (with at least 6 inches of space around the inverted pot); an empty paint pint would work fine, if you dont' want to use a pot; fill ring between the two with potting mix.
- Repeat to create a second layer with 2 smaller pots, with 4 inches between them. Place final pot right side up on second inverted pot. Fill with potting mix. Plant herbs in all three layers.
