How to plant a herb pyramid

No matter what size your garden space, it's easy to grow your own herbs to use for cooking, salads, BBQs and herbal teas. They're low maintenance and easy to grow - some sunshine and regular watering is all they need. A herb pyramid is a great idea if you are short on space and looks great too as a feature pot on the patio.

Step By Step Guide

  • Choose your favourite herbs - a mix of different colours and textures looks great - and three different sized pots.
  • Add compost to your largest pot until it's virtually full.
  • Sit the next pot on the compost and begin to plant herbs in the bottom pot around the smaller one.
  • Repeat with the middle and top pots.
  • Add a layer of grit to the surface of the compost in each pot to keep weeds at bay and stop rain splash marking your herbs.
  • Water the pyramid gently. Remember to water regularly during the groing season and feed with liquid fertiliser every week to keep your herbs at their best.
