I originally saw this idea on a post from The Micro Gardener, and I knew right away that I needed to try hanging my herbs this way.
I created them the
I spray painted them with white Rustoleum spraypaint, choosing white to help avoid cooking the roots of the plants in the sun.
I was able to pretty much buy the herb plants and slip them right down into the cans. Again, it was much easier with the larger tomato can than it was with the soup cans. Either way though, they are happy, smell great, and are looking fabulous. They do require frequent watering however, since the planters are so small.
Anyway, bottom line? Love them.
