A Tower of Herbs!


These herb towers are perfect for that person who only has a small space to plant!  If space is a consideration, don't miss out on growing fresh herbs yourself.  Just try this simple idea and the benefits are HUGE!
Tools & materials:  5 - terracotta clay planters, potting mix & herbs!
 30046This planter has rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme, oregano, basil and chives.  All easily available at garden nurseries and all wonderful used in cooking.  Of course you can use any herbs you desire and there are some pretty great one that are both unique and tasty!
Simply place the largest planter in the location selected from the herb garden.  Center 1 small pot within, upside down with at least 6 inches of space around the inverted pot.  Fill the ring between the two with potting mix.  Repeat to create a second layer with 2 small pots, with 4" between them.  Place a final pot right side up on the second inverted pot and fill with potting mix.  Plant the herbs of your choice in all three layers.  FUN!

Feat of Clay!

Turn inexpensive terra-cotta clay pots into fun, functional patio decor. All you need is glue!
Make end tables and planter pedestals by stacking containers and saucers in creative combinations.  Sketch out possible combinations, or play with pots you already have on hand, to find a design you like.  Once you have the necessary pieces, assemble them without gluing to make sure the result is what you envisioned.
Use craft adhesive to attach pieces.  Run a solid bead on each surface to be glued.  Then let the assembly dry complete.  Use a pottery sealer if desired.
