With Mother's Day around the corner, I thought I would share this gift idea
-- an herb garden terrarium.
I've packaged this as a tea garden for a friend who I know loves tea but you could adapt this to other culinary themes as well.
How about an Italian herb garden with basil, oregano and Italian parsley or a French garden with tarragon, thyme and lavender?
The combinations are really endless.
Anyways it's super easy to put together. Here's what you need.
Tip: try to purchase organic herbs plants that you know
are grown using non-GMO seeds.
Add some plant markers. I used Japanese Washi tape to embellish these plain wood markers. You could also paint with chalkboard paint, dip in a colourful paint or stamp them.
The peat pots cover up the ugly plastic pots that these plants are packaged with at the store.
This gift was traveling so I wrapped it up and added a tag and some twine. However, you could easily leave it unwrapped and just add a tag.
So there you have it. A nice way to add some green to a kitchen and then plant outside when the weather is warm enough.
