The Handmade Garden – Going Potty

posted in: Articles, In The Garden | 0

At this time of year it’s time to ‘Go Potty’. Whether you have a garden with a patio or even a small balcony, anyone can have a garden. Every garden is individual and you do not have to have a large budget to create something beautiful.

Containers and pots from garden centres etc can be very expensive and there are many ways to create your own. This all makes it much more personal and can be very enjoyable.

Let’s take a look at some DIY and Recycling options.

Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden

By from dates to diapers

Now that Spring has arrived, I wish I had a green thumb. The weather is gorgeous and I would love to have a garden. Maybe some day I will; with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and maybe even some asparagus. But, for now I’ll make due with my new mini herb garden.

This Topsy-Turvey Herb Garden was super easy to create and is a super cute accent in our front yard. I purchased all of the supplies from Walmart for about $40, including the herbs. Now, we have six of our favorite herbs, ready for picking and noshing!


Of course not everyone has time to make their own containers so here are some wonderful handmade ones that I discovered on Etsy.
