As soon as spring arrived, I got excited about gardening projects. One I had in mind was to make a wall herb garden that hung on my fence. Now that I’m working with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® for Plant Something Day, I knew that I needed to make this mini herb garden come to life!
I also wanted to help spread the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® initiative. The brand is encouraging you to get out and #PlantSomething in your own backyard. Plus, for every order on MrsMeyers.com, $5 of every purchase will go towards a $10,000 donation to the ACGA to help grow new community gardens across the country, places where we literally put down our roots! From May 9 to June 5.
If you are not familiar with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day®, here are some things you are going to want to know about the brand. Mrs. Meyer’s is a lifestyle brand that believes in a better way to get a good clean. Their products are earth-friendly, cruelty-free, and made whenever possible, with materials from renewable plant resources such as coconut, palm, corn, soy or olive. I found about them just after I had my baby, when I started feeling concerned about the environmental effects of conventional cleaning products. I didn’t want to lose that great smell after everything is clean.
I got some Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® products so I could try them while crafting my project. They were so helpful, especially when it was time to clean up all the mess!
How to Make a Cute Vertical Herb Garden
- Wooden crates
- Acrylic paint. Matte finish
- Herbs and seeds
- Garden soil
- Small terracotta planters
1. Start by painting your wooden crates. Use non-toxic acrylic paint in a matte finish. Let them dry for a few hours.
2. Sand the corners of the wooden crates to give them a beautiful vintage touch.
3. Then, start planting your herbs. I planted the slip of basil seed paper that I received with the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® products in a small terracotta planter. I can’t wait to see it grow!
4. Hang the wooden crates from a wall or a fence and arrange your favorite herbs around.
This project is really simple, cute and it doesn’t take much space, which is great for small patios and terraces. You could also recreate the look for indoor spaces and add a few cacti and succulents!
