The Verical Herb Garden:
I grabbed 6 little potted herbs from my supermarket , some organic potting soil and these adorable little plastic planters from Family Dollar (Gasp! I know! they were only a buck, so I went with it!)
When I first spotted these planters I knew I wanted to use them in my deck refresh, but I just wasn't sure how. Then I decided to get a little creative.
Here's what I did:
1.) I drilled a hole in each plastic planter and poked holes through the bottom as well for drainage.
2.) I then decided on placement, I knew I had this blank privacy panel wall to fill over one side of the bench seating, so I played around with some configurations, and once I decided, I drilled with a small drill bit, a tiny hole, and then screwed some outdoor "cup hooks" in by hand.
3.) My original thought was that I would be able to hang the planters right on to the hook, but that was very bad planning. Instead I looped a small piece of garden twine into the holes and tied a knot leaving just a small amount of slack, as I didn't really want the loops visible.
