How to make hanging wall planters for a beautiful indoor vertical garden suitable for a home or apartment.

I love cooking fresh all year round, but as it grows cold in the winter, our herbs need to be transferred indoors.

To keep them convenient and provide them plenty of light, I have created an indoor herb garden, conveniently located by my kitchen sink.

A vertical garden doesn’t have to be outdoors! This easy idea is very flexible and can be used anywhere indoors.

Of course I didn’t want to drill holes in my cabinetry, so much like my pretty pantry, I enlisted the help of a few 3M Command Hooks. They’re effective, discreet and most importantly, easily removable when you move your herb garden outdoors.

This project takes just 15-20 minutes, including paint time. Are you ready?

How to create hanging wall planters, an indoor vertical garden:

  • Grab a few plastic pots {because the weigh very little}, without drains that you can insert potted herbs into.

  • Paint away! I used this inexpensive craft paint and a $0.15 foam brush.

  1. This is such a cute idea! How does not having drainage affect the herbs?

  2. Where do you find little pots like that?

  3. I love this idea. I think it would also be cute with coffee cups, you wouldn’t need to drill a hole.

  4. I love this, but one question, are the hanger able to continue holding the pot once filled with wet dirt, from watering the flower, and not eventually fall?

    • I never had any issues with that – the amount of water required for these herbs is minimal enough for the weight load of the hooks. Enjoy!

  5. This is such a great idea! Close to the light the herbs need and doesn’t take up any horizontal surface space. And the 3M hooks idea is brilliant-
    Doing this!
