This container herb garden would be a great project for those that have little outdoor gardening space since it’s designed vertically. You could do a tower of herbs you make teas with or do themed culinary pots (Italian/French/spicy). You could also add some nasturtiums (which are edible) for some color or make one tier lettuce – there are so many ways you could use this space saving idea from Home Depot! You could grow quite a bit of herbs in this DIY Terracotta Herb Tower!

I would try to group herbs that have the same watering requirements together and something like mint or lemon balm (that spreads easily) I’d put in the top container by itself unless you want lots of that herb.
DIY Terracotta Herb Tower
You need a 8″, 11.75″, and two 12″ planters to make a herb tower as pictured. But basically you need planters that get progressively smaller as you build up so you could do whatever size you want.
Home Depot has a short video explaining how to put this together and also a pdf that you can download. Seems very easy and once it fills in should be quite stunning!
