Gather your supplies

To make a Mason jar herb garden, you’ll need:

  • Mason jars
  • Herb seedlings or seeds
  • Potting soil
  • Decorative rocks or moss
  • Watering can or spray bottle

You can purchase these supplies at your local garden center or online.

Plant your herbs

Fill each Mason jar with potting soil, leaving about an inch of space at the top. Plant your herb seedlings or seeds according to their specific instructions and water them well.

You can either plant one type of herb per jar or mix and match different herbs in each jar.

Add decorative touches

Once your herbs are planted, you can add decorative rocks or moss on top of the soil to give it a finished look. You can also label your jars with the names of the herbs using chalkboard labels or a permanent marker.

Find the right spot for your Mason jar herb garden

Mason jar herb gardens can be placed in a sunny spot indoors, such as a windowsill or on a kitchen counter. They can also be placed outdoors on a porch or balcony. Just make sure your herbs are getting enough sunlight and water.

Maintain your herb garden

Be sure to water your herbs regularly and keep an eye out for any pests or diseases. To prevent pests, you can spray your herbs with a mixture of water and dish soap. To promote healthy growth, you can fertilize your herbs once a month with a water-soluble fertilizer.

By following these steps, you can create your own beautiful and functional Mason jar herb garden that will add flavor and freshness to your home cooking.
