Herb Garden Inspiration

Planting a container garden is an easy, simple way to get the benefit of flowers, veggies, or – in this case, herbs! – in a compact space.

Whether you’ve got a cement patio, apartment balcony, or a free spot inside your living space by a sunlit window, these herb garden designs will help you green up your day-to-day this summer!

All plans include a list of five plants each plus a simple design for a container based on size. These were created by Alyssa Giese, Horticulturist, who tends to our Herb Display Gardens during the growing season.
