Make your own herb tower


Posted 2nd May 2018


Why not try making your own herb tower? It's never been easier to grow your own, even if you only have a small space

You will need

1 x large terracotta pot
3 x medium terracotta pot
Wooden or metal rod (eg a broom handle)
Compost
Herb Plants
Heavy base (optional)

Directions

1 Secure the rod into a heavy base such as a parasol base, or push into the ground so it's stable.

2 Thread on the largest plot first and half fill this wit compost. Then plant a few herbs around the edges.

3 Fill the rest of the pots with compost and plant them with a selection of herbs. Leave the centre of each pot unplanted.

4 Layer the rest of the pots onto the rod tilting each in the opposite directions. Fill the gaps with compost, firm down and water well.
