Diy windowsill herb garden

While the prime summer growing season has slowly come to an end, it’s not too late to start an indoor herb garden on your windowsill.

What you’ll need:

– Indoor varieties of herbs (I chose Basil and Parsley)

– Plastic container

– Potting soil

– Drip tray

Method: For the plastic containers I used an empty bottle and, using a push pin, created several small holes in the bottom for drainage. Next I filled the container with some potting soil (I got the expanding style from Poundland which was £1 for 14 Litres) and inserted the plants. My Mum kindly donated the herbs to me but you can find pre planted varieties at supermarkets or garden centers. Finally I placed the containers in some glass-cut pudding bowls which I found at a chairty shop (these were repurposed from our wedding) and filled with water. The drip trays allow the plants to access water when they want, which prevents over watering and produces better herbs.

Let me know how you get on in the comments below!
