Perfect For Your Garden or Any Floral Arrangement
Starting a kitchen garden is so simple. I remember for my 23rd birthday, Karl’s mom bought me a windowsill planter with three different herbs already planted in soil, each with it’s corresponding label, basil, oregano and rosemary. It was the perfect gift! Since then, I have upgraded my herb garden to an outdoor planter box. Although, I still love to keep a few varieties of herbs in the kitchen for quick usage. Buying herb starters and planting them of course is the easiest way to get started. I do have to say, the first time I started with a little seed and watched it grow into something I could consume was pretty amazing. Either way, you just can’t beat fresh herbs. And the best thing, or one of the best things, there’s really so many, about a kitchen garden, is you don’t need a lot of space! For those that live in an apartment or don’t have a large backyard, various pots of herbs and vegetables, such as tomatoes, can easily be grown in your kitchen next to a sunny window. Check out your local nursery or even Lowe’s for a variety of herbs. Side-note: I also love to mix match pots with different textures and colors for my indoor kitchen garden. Make it fun!
I’ve seen a few fun ways to label a garden, but I believe this is simplest and most affordable. Below I share with you the items you need and “how-to” instructions. As you can see, I also like to add tags to bouquets of flowers that I place around my house or on the table if I’m hosting a brunch or dinner party. Especially if its a special occasion, get well flowers or even a birthday, it’s fun to personalize the display and can make your guest feel extra special.
