Creative Indoor Herb Garden Ideas For Small Spaces

If you are looking to grow herbs, you don't need a sprawling countryside to do so. This month we treated our subscribers to an indoor herb garden experience, and even if you don't have a lot of space indoors, you can still grow your favorite herbs. If you are a city person, or even just out of space in your yard, here are some ideas to create an indoor herb garden for your small space.


Vertical Gardens


When your floor space is limited think vertically! Vertical herb gardens can utilize space efficiently which makes them perfect for small kitchens or apartments. You can install a wall-mounted planter system, or even repurpose things like a hanging shoe organizer or pallets to create a tiered herb garden. Not only can this utilize space, but also add a stylish touch to your decor.

Windowsills


Harness natural light by using windowsills. Lining your windowsills with your favorite herbs is visually appealing and gives you easy access to them for cooking. They will brighten up your living space with their vibrant colors and smells.

Compact Containers


If you don't have sprawling gardens using compact containers is the key for your small space. Use shallow pots or repurpose things such as mason jars, teacups, or tin cans you can decorate. These compact containers are perfect to use on your countertops, shelves, or even a sunny corner of your desk for a pop of color.

Hanging Baskets


Who says hanging baskets are just for regular plants? Fill hanging baskets with different herbs to create a whimsical, practical, and functional option. Simply suspend it from the ceiling or a hook above the window to create instant space. This is the perfect option for those who do not have too much counter or windowsill space to spare.

Create Herb Wall Art


Try your hand at creating herb wall art! Choose a decorative frame or shadow box and fill it with small pots containing your favorite herbs. Hang it on a wall in your home that gets some sunlight and you have created a piece of art and a convenient herb garden.

No matter how small your living space is, there is always room for an herb garden. Transform forgotten corners with floating shelves or wall-mounted herb racks. Whether you opt for the windowsills, a hanging basket, or compact containers, you can grow herbs indoors year-round to have them right at your fingertips. Let your creativity flow and you will create a thriving garden in your cozy small space. Happy Gardening!
