Indoor Herb Garden

Easy hanging planter idea | Julie Blanner, lifestyle blogger

Despite the cold, snowy weather, I still want to cook with fresh herbs. It can be a challenge to maintain an indoor herb garden in a Kansas winter, but not impossible! It’s important for herbs to have proper drainage and lots of light. I love my cottage kitchen, but it doesn’t offer a lot of space for plants, so I created hanging planters for my herbs. This project takes just 10-15 minutes {mostly painting}.

How to make an indoor herb garden

To create your own hanging planters & indoor herb garden, you’ll need:


plastic container that drains

plastic container that holds draining container


3M Command Hooks {on my must have craft supply list}


paint brush

I purchased my herbs for just a few dollars each – already in a draining container and an outer plastic container as shown. Below, is the inner container.

Yes, it’s that simple! It’s easy to remove your herbs for watering and to grant them more light, if needed, but convenient for snipping!

If you don’t tend to use fresh herbs, you may want to add some succulents. They’re easy to care for and it’s always nice to add something organic to your kitchen.
