Finally! A visual how-to on building those beautiful flower pot towers. Let's put one our front porches this year! Great for an herb garden outside the kitchen door!
Tower of Herbs - 5 terra-cotta planters - Soilless potting mix - Assorted herbs - parsley, oregano, basil, chives - plant mint in top pot, since it can overwhelm other herbs. - Place largest planter in the location for the herb garden. Center 1 smaller pot within, upside down (with at least 6 inches of space around the inverted pot); fill with potting mix. - Repeat to create a second layer with 2 smaller pots, with 4 inches between them. Place final pot right side up on second inverted pot.

Extraordinary Uses for Rosemary Herb for Healthy Living

Extraordinary Uses for Rosemary. For healthy living, learn simple uses for rosemary herbs. Rosemary has multiple properties and benefits, variously used since ancient times until today. @Elaine Hwa Hwa Hwa McFadden note: Rosemary is proving to be quite the antioxidant and able to help preserve foods that can easily turn rancid such as those high in oils. Expect to see lots more from rosemary in the future. Such a great shrub to grow as well. Add a pot or plant to your garden and have fresh rosemary anyday.

A Better Way to Grow Cilantro. Try this method for a continuous crop.

A better way to grow cilantro...my cilantro in the garden grows so fast and flowers early so I'm going to try this on the back patio garden.
How to grow cilantro - Try this method for a fast, continuous crop
A better way to grow cilantro for a fast, continuous crop Wouldn't it be nice to have fresh cilantro growing right outside your kitchen door? Whenever you wanted to fix salsa or guacamole, or a Middle Eastern yogurt sauce for your lamb kabobs, there the lacy, sweetly pungent leaves would be, ready to harvest. But if you've ever tried to grow it, you've probably noticed that cilantro yields a fast crop; plants are barely up before they try to flower and set seeds. So those tasty leaves aren't around long, especially in warm weather. More about cool-season crops To keep leaves coming, you can sow seeds every two weeks for a continuous cilantro crop. Or, even better, try the method we perfected in Sunset's test garden last year: Grow cilantro as you would mesclun. Sow seeds thickly in a wide, shallow container; then, as soon as plants are 3 to 4 inches tall and sporting a couple of cuttable leaves, use scissors to cut off some foliage for cooking as shown. Shear from a different section of the container every time, rotating the pot as you go and never letting plants in any area mature. By the time you get back to the first section harvested, new leaves will have appeared. Cilantro growing tips 1. Select a bowl-shaped container at least 18 inches wide and 8 to 10 inches deep. 2. Fill the pot with a fast-draining potting soil; mix in an organic granular fertilizer. 3. Before seeding, moisten the soil using a fine spray from the hose. Because the seeds are fairly small, mix them in a bowl with sand (3 parts sand to 1 part seed) so they'll disperse more evenly. Sow the seeds, then cover lightly with soil. 4. Gently mist the soil so as not to displace the seeds. 5. Place containers in full sun or, if you live in a hot climate, light shade. Seeds should germinate in 7 to 10 days. 6. Harvest at least weekly to keep leaves coming. Using this method, it's possible to harvest four crops of cilantro from a single pot.

Interesting idea for starting plants - kind of like mini greenhouses
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - Plastic containers to grow food should have recycling numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 on the bottom. Plastic containers with a 3 have PVC in them. In time chemicals leach out contaminating soil. Styrofoam is made of plastic number 6 and have cancerous effects, Number 7 contains bisphenol A which is harmful to the behavioral growth of children.
Inexpensive Mini Greenhouses - VERY good idea! Use larger containers with drain holes.

How To Make Biodegradable Mini Planters From Toilet Paper Rolls If you plan on starting your own vegetable and flower seeds, you can get a little more mileage out of that toilet paper roll. Make yourself a “mini-planter” that you can plant pot and all! Making this biodegradable mini-planter is pretty simple – scissors and a toilet paper or paper towel roll is all that’s required. You should be able to see what to do from the image but if you need instructions.

30 Insanly Clever Gardening Ideas!! Make biodegradable planters out of toilet paper rolls.
Toilet Paper Tubes Mini Planters 1. Using scissors, cut six to eight small slits in the end of your toilet paper roll (if using a paper towel roll, cut the roll into three pieces before beginning this step). 2. Fold the strips down so they overlap. 3. Fill carefully with wet soil, and set in a baking sheet. 4. Plant 1 seed per roll. After germination, just plant the whole thing in your garden! http://earth911.com/news/2012/05/30/7-more-reused-items-to-boost-your-garden/4

Natural Rock Planters. Similar to the idea of hollowing out a tree stump, there are also plants that will grow really well in shallow rocks. You might already have a few rocks that are hollow enough to support succulents or dessert plants, but you can also group a few rocks or stones together to create a natural little rock garden.
