If you’re short on gardening space, why not grow your herbs vertically? Build you own tiered herbal tower cheaply and easily by ‘planting’ smaller pots inside larger ones.
As well as looking attractive, a tiered herb garden packs a lot of plants into a small space, and creates separate planting pockets for herbs with slightly different needs.
The largest pot at the base of the tower will have moister compost and a little more shade that the one at the top, which has the best drainage and gets the most sun.
Use potting compost, planting the more moisture-loving annual or traditional herbs in the lower two tiers, and adding grit to the upper tier for Mediterranean herbs.
Kevin Smith says…
Create this display in-situ as it may be heavy and awkward to move once it’s complete. Disguise any bare compost with a gravel mulch – it’ll add the finishing touch and create a professional look.
