Good grief you guys, I’m getting pretty tired of winter and we still have several weeks to go. Doing fun projects like this Mason Jar Herb Garden is what keeps me going. Besides being a cute little décor vignette, it’s so nice to have fresh herbs ready for snipping to add to those yummy, comfort foods. However, my favorite reason for growing herbs indoors is the sensory experience. I love the smell of fresh rosemary, lavender, basil, thyme, etc., etc.
- 3 mason jars (I use the 16 oz size)
- River pebbles or any other type of pebbles
- Potting mix
- Herb plants or seeds
- Put about 1 – 2 inches of gravel in the bottom of each jar (this will help with drainage since there are no holes in the jar).
- Add an inch or so of potting mix to the jar (if you’re planting seeds, go ahead and fill the soil to about a half inch from the top of the jar, and plant the seeds according to directions on the seed packet).
- Now add your herb plant.
- Add potting mix to fill in around the plant (if needed) and press the soil down and around the plant.
- Give your plant or seeds a good drink of water (not too much though).
- Add a cute label to your jar, a cute tag around the neck of the jar, or a cute stick label like the ones I used.
Seriously, this is so quick and easy to put together, give it a try. It would also be a great project to do with kids. So, what are you doing to stay sane this winter? Check out my other winter gardening posts for some more great ideas:
