Hanging Kitchen Herb Garden

Hanging Kitchen Window Herb Garden #diy #garden #herbs

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!

  1. That’s adorable, and a great alternative to a curtain! Juila

  2. I love this idea. Not sure I have room enough to do as many levels but I will be trying this soon!

  3. Soo cute! Love this idea…found at fri frenzy. Have a great weekend.

  4. OMG..this is such a good idea. I’m gonna start an herb garden indoors this year and I keep looking around at ideas and this one takes the cake (or herb). Thanks for sharing. PInning it!!

  5. JaneEllen says:

    Wow, this is so incredible. Gives privacy and light for plants that dress up the room. How clever are you? Love this. I’d like to do this on our mudroom window, it’s wide enough and gets lots of light, would be perfect. How wonderful is this idea? So glad you shared this idea. Pinning Happy weekend

  6. This is awesome! I really need one of these in my window!

  7. such a beautiful idea!! P.S. I found you through the link party on

  8. Always wanted an indoor herb garden. Pinned and will have to give this a try. How long have you had this up?

    • Kristy O says:

      Hi Erlene! I started my seedlings for it in the beginning of Feb, and planted it the last week of Feb, so it’s been up for about 2 months now. I was shocked at how easily they grew… About a week ago we had enough basil that we were able to make pesto, not bad for a couple month harvest. It hasn’t been long enough for the plants to become unruly yet, but I’m guessing by next year I’ll have to keep them trimmed up to look nice.

  9. I have never thought of using s hooks like that. Totally makes sense. And the herb garden is fantastic!

  10. WOW, this is gorgeous! Simply stunning….. I would love for you to share at Link it or Lump it if you have not already

  11. This is a super cool idea! We just started our own herb and veggie garden using an egg carton and some small pots. We’re hoping to plant seedlings in the ground this weekend. Found you via SITS!
