Growing season is upon us where I live, and I'm itching to plant some herbs. But where to plant? Outside, deer and rabbits mow down anything within their reach. Inside, there isn't much space. To overcome both obstacles, we've rounded up 10 small space herb garden projects that could very well solve all my--and your--space and pest issues.
For the original 10 small space container and herb garden ideas, visit this Curbly post.
We'll start with a few indoor ideas, all of which take up very little space.
This idea comes from the Bachman's Idea House via Itsy Bits and Pieces. Making the hanging jars would be easy enough, and as for the frame onto which the hooks are attached, it could be reproduced using wood, or something like this could work. Expanding on the idea, a traditional standing coat rack could work too.
I adore Suzie Frazier's vertical garden, which would be perfect for herbs too. Click here for the tutorial.
Maryann's take on a vertical garden couldn't be more charming--or simple!
Moving outdoors, Martha offers this great tower-of-herbs project using terra cotta pots. It would be PERFECT for a patio or deck. I also like the idea of using random pots for the project, all of which you might already have on hand. (I do.) And if you don't, they're a common item at garage sales that you can pick up for next to nothing.
Still vertical is this outdoor hanging garden project from Brit & Co. (Adore!)
This DIY trellis used as a vertical container garden would deliver a happy pop of color all growing season long. Visit BHG for more details.
For an even simpler take on the trellis idea is this basic frame turned vertical garden from Dash and a Pinch. (LOVE the random containers.)
Clean, simple and lovely, the DIY Network's wooden herb planter box goes together in a flash.
Considerably more ambitious than the last project, but for the herb lover, this vertical stepped garden is the cat's meow. Visit Bonnie Plants for a detailed PDF.
This last idea doesn't come to us as a DIY project...but it could be. Think about it, first, you build a frame, then using hooks at the top and bottom, attach lengths of chain. The original planters are actually ammo cans, but a similar version of the DIY Network's idea could work. Then, you'd just attach them to the chain via threaded rods and nuts. Right??? Gorgeous!!
