How to create a herb planter






  1. Fill half of your pot with compost

  1. Remove the herbs from their plastic containers, then position them in the pot, placing taller ones at the back. If the containers are biodegradable then there’s no need to remove them and you can plant directly into the soil

  1. Fill any remaining gaps with soil and water well 

  1. Place in a sunny spot in your home, like a bright dining room or kitchen counter
