As I planned our garden for this year, I wanted to figure herbs into the equation. I don't cook a lot with herbs right now, but want to start. I have also seen some neat ideas where dried herbs can be used in candles, something I'd like to try as well.
When I saw a Do It Herself workshop for a Vertical Herb Garden at Home Depot I signed up right away! I wanted to grow three of the primary herbs I'd like to use more of near the house. This project was my solution!
I've provided some photos from the workshop I attended below, but you can find the full tutorial here: How to Build a Vertical Herb Garden.

At this workshop, all three attendees were able to build their own herb garden.
The wood was pre-cut for us. Home Depot supplied the tools and supplies we needed, including a screwdriver, nail gun and power drill.
The hardest part about this project was getting the clamps drilled into the wood to hold the flower pots. See my recommendation above for what we ended up doing.
Here's the finished product in its new home! It's still a little too chilly to plant anything here in Iowa, so for now I've filled the pots with artificial floral décor.
