If you only have limited space but want lots of fresh, tasty herbs to cook with, get creative by using vertical wooden shelving
Give your herbs the attention they deserve and turn them into the centrepiece of your garden.
You will need:
2 x 1L of Cuprinol Garden Shades in your favourite colours
2" paint brush
Unpainted wooden ladder shelving
Terracotta pots which you can paint to match your colour scheme
A selection of your favourite growing herbs (basil or parsley will be great for salads, while mint and rosemary are perfect for summer cocktails
1 Pick up your paintbrush and start by painting the legs with your first colour. Apply two coats and allow them to dry.
2 Take off the edges where the legs meet the ladders steps.
3 Apply two coats of your second colour to the ladder's steps with a small roller and brush.
4 Use Cuprinol Garden Shades testers to decorate the Terracotta pots before planting them.
5 Once dry, you're ready to start arranging your vertical garden. It's worth giving trailing plants the penthouse step and put the shade loving herbs such as chives, coriander and parsley at the bottom.
6 Now sit back and relax knowing your herb garden is done.
Tip: You can use Cuprinol Garden Shades testers in your favourite colours to decorate terracotta pots for the perfect finishing touch.
