My Herb Garden Box

If you have been following me for a while, you know how I hate gardening - but that I love flowers and herbs.
To avoid getting my hands in worm and insect infested dirt I went on the hunt for a raised box for my herbs. I bought this "box on a stand" at a garage sale for $5.00 and removed the lid. A little white spray paint covered the ugly colored wood:
I planted parsley, basil, oregano and chives and placed my rocks to identify each herb (as if I would forget!) and there are a few back-up plants below:
I also added a cheap little plaque from the Christmas Tree Shop:

  5. Great idea, Patti! I love the stand! Love the addition of the sign, too. The red adds such a nice pop of color.

  6. What a pretty herb stand!! The little zinnia sign is very cute! For me, there is something really therapeutic about getting my hands in the soil. So I dig in the dirt.

  7. So cute Patti!
    The landscape company out back of the shop just set up their herb display...I think I will "borrow" your idea for my campground!

  9. This is such a great idea. We've been wanting to do a small herb garden. Something this size would be perfect.

  10. Well, this is just as cute as can be..a great idea. Did you drill holes in the bottom for drainage? I'll be watching for a box now. I love fresh herbs.

    Did you get my email and photo? I hope so but if not, email me, ok? I sent it this morning.
