This beautiful hanging garden is our solution to for an indoor herb garden.
I love our house and we get GREAT sunlight in the windows, but there is no counter space reasonable for an herb garden, where they would get enough sun. Also, who wants to give up counter space?
To create the hanging garden:
- 9 aluminum painters buckets (water proof / no leaks)
- 3 curtain rods
- vinyl / silhouette
- rocks, soil and plants
- 18 S hooks
First I labeled the pots with my vinyl lettering, then added rocks to the bottom for drainage and planted my herbs. After installing the 3 curtain rods over the window, I hung each pot using 2 S hooks. Doubling up on the S hooks helps ensure the buckets will not fall off if they swing around a bit.
This was a REALLY easy project to do. It is also easy keeping the plants alive, indoors and away from bugs, where I see them everyday and are reminded to water them
The herbs planted:
- Bottom Row: Chives, Cilantro, Basil
- Middle Row: Flat Leaf Parsley, Curley Leaf Parsley, Oregano
- Top Row: Dill, Thyme, Sage (these still need to be planted)
Since the project the indoor basil has taken off! (Enough to make pesto!). Also Dill will be moved to the bottom where it has more light / room to grow. Chives will move up top.
How do you plant your garden indoors? I’d love to hear about it!
