Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden

Now that Spring has arrived, I wish I had a green thumb. The weather is gorgeous and I would love to have a garden. Maybe some day I will; with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and maybe even some asparagus. But, for now I’ll make due with my new mini herb garden.

Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden

This Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden was super easy to create and is a super cute accent in our front yard. I purchased all of the supplies from Walmart for about $40, including the herbs. Now, we have six of our favorite herbs, ready for picking and noshing!

How To Make A Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden

Items Needed::

  • 5/8in, 4ft wooden dowel
  • potting mix
  • 1 large clay pot
  • 5 medium clay pots
  • 6 different types of herbs or flowers
  • decorative piece

How To Assemble::

  1. Insert the dowel in to the soft ground.
  2. Thread the large pot onto the dowel.
  3. Fill with potting soil and plant first herb.
  4. Thread a medium pot onto the dowel and tilt to one side; fill with soil and herb.
  5. Thread the next pot onto the dowel and tilt to the other side; fill and plant.
  6. Continue adding pots until all are stacked, filled, and planted.
  7. Top with decorative piece.

Happy Spring!

    It really is great to see inspiration in gardening. This image portrays art with herb gardening. Truthfully it really caught my eye, so I shared it in my social House and Garden website.
    I may even have a try and making this myself, as it’s vertical as well and save space. Also, the water should run down and recycle as well.
    Love it.

    I live in an apartment. I’d love to do this but I can’t put it into the ground, I would have to put it on a concrete patio. Any ideas on how I could do that? Perhaps attaching it to the railing somehow?
