If you didn’t already know, I LOVE plants! Unless you have your own house already, you are like me, an apartment dweller. Apartments can make growing anything difficult, especially if there isn’t a ton of windows or if you don’t have a patio. Growing up my family always had a garden and grew a variety of flowers and vegetables.
As an adult, I have contemplated growing a tomato plant in my apartment, but decided it probably wouldn’t be a good idea. I have several tropical plants and succulents but I love the idea of growing fresh food. But that’s not really an option, so I compromised with growing my own herbs.
Here’s what you will need…
I used mason jars that I found in my grandma’s basement, you can use old jars or terracotta pots, whatever your heart desires. You will need rocks to place in the bottom of the jars, this helps with drainage. Mine are from Michael’s, any craft store should have these. You will only need enough to fill the bottom two inches (max) of the jar. The best kind of soil to use is the Miracle Grow Moisture Control soil, it helps the soil to stay moist but not moldy.
You will obviously need herbs, I chose basil, oregano, mint, and rosemary. I got some tags and twine to mark the jars with, I got some inspo from Pinterest and wrote the names in calligraphy with a marker.
This only took about 30 minutes to do and now I will have easy access to fresh herbs. If you enjoyed this post give it a like and let me know in the comments if you made your own apartment style herb garden!
