Herbdoc has a great idea for a cool-looking herb garden:
This woven cornucopia has been my favorite hanging basket this year. It draws attention and sparks conversation because of its unusual shape, and since it hangs just outside the kitchen door on the second floor decks always presents itself for quick snipping.
The overflowing cornucopia is filled with thyme, oregano, parsley and rosemary and is lined with plastic to retain the soil. If you decide to make one, pack it full of herbs and/or flowers from the start, and water it daily. Don’t hesitate to clip the herbs to your heart’s content! If not kept in check, they will grow far over the sides and may exit the basket altogether! Every six weeks or so give it a dose of fish emulsion to keep it healthy and happy in its soilless mix.
Right now I’m trying to decide if I will try to overwinter the basket on a kitchen window hanger or just try to replant it next year. Any opinions, readers?
