Have you ever thought about edible herbal decor for your home? Maybe it should be your next idea: an herb garden. Not only is this simple tiny garden chic and beautiful for your empty spaces as decor, but it’s also edible and useful whenever you need a sprinkle of herb or two for your ingredients. It could be another option for indoor houseplant ideas, as you can easily put them on a small space on your kitchen countertop, or even hang them around the corner you’d like them to be. Or, dedicate an outdoor little space from the balcony, outer wall, to the backyard for the mini herb garden. Well, how do you like it sounds?

Choose a ground area in your yards
It’s the tips from Beautiful Eats and Things if you choose to plant the herb garden in your yard. If you are planting the herbs in the ground, prepare the area for planting by loosening the soil. If you are using a planter box or a container, make sure that it has good drainage or holes on the bottom. Also, be sure to choose good-quality, fast-draining soil.

If you have some unused tubs or happen to see them at the flea market, you should use some for your planting medium. Just look at this photo, don’t they make the herb garden just cooler?
