    These metal buckets are great for a colorful indoor herb garden. Keep in mind the following: plant's root requirements (select plants that have shallow roots); and drainage holes for the bucket (you may need a catch-tray underneath; attach a shallow round tray onto the bottom of the buckets)

    Cute idea: If you like to use fresh-picked greens for cooking, keep a small container garden at your kitchen window. Paint small metal buckets with exterior enamel paint and fill them with potting mix and small plants. Hang the buckets from twine or a tension rod painted a fun color. Add painted clothespins for a bit of whimsy. Because you won’t want the plants to drain on your windowsill, eliminate the drainage holes and simply water sparingly—just enough to moisten the soil.

    container gardening ideas - This one is super cute using a tension rod between cabinets, would probably need hooks instead of clothespins to hang the colorful buckets though.

Hanging herb garden - pair sage and rosemary, parsley (appreciates weekly liquid feeding and midday shade) and chives, and basil (cut some shoots off a supermarket-bought plant and stand them in water until they produce roots, then pot up the plantlets individually).

Got Herbs? Try this out in a Hanging Pocket Shoe Rack -This is perfect if you just have a small outdoor space. Just poke a few holes on the bottom of each pouch and fill with good soil, then a small rooted herb plant.
