If you have a few baskets around the house just taking up space, you can turn them into planters for your herbs and place them in various places around your home. A cluster of baskets all together in different heights and angles will make a splendid herb garden in your yard.

Use the little hole in your clay pots for more than just water drainage. Take a firm skinny rod-like rebar and place it inside the hole and add more pots to the skewer.  Angle the pots in opposite directions and anchor the rod to the ground. Once you have it secure and in position, add dirt to the pots along with your herbs. The whimsical sculpture will be eye-catching.

Mason jars have an old country feel that will add charm to your herbs. Use them as planters and place them in special places outside your home or inside. Baby food jars are also a great way to display your herb garden. Recycle those old jars and put them to good use.

Add some beads, shells, or recycled glass and give it a coat of varnish. No one on the block will have an herb garden as cute as you because no one can do you like you can do.

Have fun creating your unique herb gardens and don’t be afraid of making mistakes. You are the master of your domain, so be adventurous.
