Make your own indoor herb garden
Materials: an enamel pan, cinnamon sticks, moss, pots (size 11) with thyme, mini pepper, mint, green and purple basil.
This indoor herb garden is very simple and the herbs can be replaced individually or replanted if necessary because they will be kept in individual containers. Make sure that the pot is large enough to accommodate the five small containers and is low enough so that the pots will remain at about the height of the edge. To begin the arrangement, place the pot of chili peppers in the pan.
Then proceed with the purple basil … and then the green basil. Taller plants should be the guide line for the composition They will indicate the threshold for balancing the proportions.
Now add the mint and, finally, thyme. To give it a proper decorative finish, add some cinnamon sticks. Insert them in the spaces between the herb pots.
Hide the pots with the herbs by laying moss over them. Spray the plants with water to keep them fresh and slightly moist. Remove periodically the water that tends to be stored in the bottom of the pan. This precaution prevents unpleasant odors and rotting plants.
