DIY Herb Garden

Pin It

This past Sunday we had a family movie date and saw the new Lorax, which we all LOVED, The kids begged us to plant something as soon as it was done, and off to Home Depot we went! While there were no truffula trees, I did see lots of flowers and herbs. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while so I bought some basil, cilantro, parsley, and jalapeno (ugh now I see I spelled that word wrong on the label..darn..oh well.) plants along with some inexpensive pots. I spent about$20-$25.00 on this project. Store bought fresh herbs are so overpriced so hopefully I can keep these alive! I know little about gardening so hopefully I can start with this small project and then maybe some tomatoes and other vegetables?..


I was so excited to use my sheet of chalkboard vinyl from Pick Your Plum. It was around $2 a sheet I think. I also bought a few whiteboard sheets to use later. It is adhesive so all you need to do is cut your shape and peel & stick.


The sweet smell of orange blossoms in our backyard makes me happy!

Have a beautiful day!

  6. I live in Phoenix and would love to do the stacked herb garden with the chart board name plates. Any special treatment due to the heat here…and should it be in full sun? How about putting it in an outdoor atrium with limited sun?
    Thanks!!!
