Plant An Indoor Herb Garden Using Mason Jars

I want my home to feel bright, happy, healthy, and welcoming. One of the ways I hope to do this is by using live plants in and around my house. I am not a girl with a “green thumb” but I am certainly trying this summer! One of the first projects that I tackled was to plant an indoor herb garden.DIY Indoor Herb Garden I had seen similar ideas all over Pinterest and so when I saw this mason jar trio at Target I knew it was meant to be! Of course, you could mount your own jars onto a bit of reclaimed wood but for $25 and my lack of tools, I couldn’t pass up this pre-assembled option. mason jar trio I stopped at Lowes and picked up three fragrant and happy plants. I decided on Rosemary, Mint, and Basil. They smell AMAZING! easy herb transplant I placed river rocks in the bottom of my jars to help with drainage. I broke up the root balls a bit and placed my plants inside. They are quite big for the containers so I wasn’t expecting them to last long. I actually haven’t hung them on the wall yet, because I was absolutely sure they would wilt and die. However, I’ve had them for a couple of weeks and they seem to be doing ok. I can’t believe it! mason jar herb garden I have my plants sitting in indirect sunlight in the formal living room temporarily. If I get brave, the forever home will be on the wall in my kitchen. I have just been using a small juice glass to water every couple of days when the soil starts to dry out. The great thing about this project is if/when I kill these plants, I can always start over with seedlings, succulents (LOVE!) or use them as vases for cut flowers. The possibilities are endless! What plants do you like to keep around your house?
