Herb Garden Ideas


An herb garden is a great way to cultivate fresh, flavorful ingredients to use in your cooking. Herbs taste great and can be more economical than store bought, and they’re also fun to grow! If you’re wondering where you might find space for an herb garden, keep reading: we’ll go over some of the most popular options.

Window boxes

Window boxes are easy to install, and they can be placed on the ground or on a balcony. They’re great for growing herbs, flowers and vegetables year round.

Window boxes come in wood, stone or plastic varieties and can be used to grow herbs, flowers and vegetables.

Hanging baskets

For anyone who wants to grow herbs, but doesn’t have much space, hanging baskets are a great option. These can be hung indoors or outdoors depending on the weather and season. Make sure you choose a hanging basket that is large enough for your herbs as they will need room to grow tall and wide. The best place to hang your hanging basket is in direct sunlight so that it receives plenty of light throughout the day. Hanging baskets should be planted with soil and allowed to drain properly before filling with water until damp with no standing water present at all times (this prevents mold from forming). If you don’t have a drill handy, simply poke holes in the bottom of the basket using an awl or large needle (make sure not too big so drainage works well). Finally add some gravel at bottom of potting mix before placing plants inside so roots don’t stay wet too long after watering plants

Pots and planters

So you’ve decided to create an herb garden? Good choice! There are many ways you can go about doing this. The first thing to consider is what kind of containers you’ll use for your herbs. You have many options: planters, hanging baskets, pots and even window boxes will work as long as they are large enough for the herbs’ roots to spread out.

When choosing a container, consider its size and weight when full with soil and plants. Large containers may require staking so that the weight of them doesn’t break their base or topple over from wind gusts (this is especially important if you live in an area that experiences strong winds).

Choosing a potting mix will depend on what kind of soil type your chosen container uses: peat-based mixes should be avoided because they’re prone to drying out quickly; clay/soil mixes tend not to drain well; bark mulches hold moisture well but can decompose quickly over time; composted coco coir tends towards being too wet since it doesn’t allow water through easily at all times (flooding your plants!).

Outdoor wall space

If you have wall space that gets full sun and is at least 15 feet tall, then this can be another possible location for your herb garden.

  • If the wall is made of brick or stone, it’s best to use a trellis or planter that attaches to the wall. This will keep your herbs from falling off the edge of the planter.
  • If your wall has a flat surface and gets plenty of sunlight, you can also mount a wooden board on top as an additional platform for planting more herbs in pots or containers.

Raised beds and planters

Raised beds are an excellent way to create the perfect space for growing herbs. They’re easy to make and can be designed to fit any garden space, whether it be large or small.

Raised beds can be made from wood, stone or even concrete blocks, depending on what material you have available and your budget. Raised beds come in a variety of sizes so there is something for everyone!

Arbors and trellises

Arbors and trellises are an elegant way to grow herbs in your garden. They look great, can be used for multiple plants, and can be built from a variety of materials. You can build arbors or trellises from wood, metal or bamboo, but these structures are often attached to walls or fences so they don’t take up too much space in your yard.

Arbors are typically used to grow vines such as grapes or kiwi fruit that need support as they climb up the structure. Trellises are usually shorter than arbors because they’re just meant for hanging pots on them with trailing herbs such as trailing rosemary and lavender planted underneath them.

There are many options to find space for an herb garden.

Depending on the size of your space, you may be able to fit a couple pots into your kitchen window or hang some baskets from an arbor. If you have more room to spare, consider creating raised beds and planters. Herb gardens are often placed in small spaces that can be easily overlooked as decoration because they require minimal maintenance.

For those who do not have any outdoor space at all, there are options such as indoor herb gardens or tabletop herb gardens that can create beautiful displays indoors.
