Make an Insta-Worthy Herb Starter Garden in Minutes
Show off your prettiest glassware with the easiest herbs.
Materials + Tools
- glassware variety (ex: tumbler, teacup, lowball glass, martini glass)
- starter herbs (ex: rosemary, cilantro, sage, mint)
- potting mix
- small pebbles
- gardening gloves
Add a handful of drainage pebbles to the bottom of the glass.
Fill glass halfway with soil.
Add the Herb
Transfer the herb to the glass and cover the roots with soil.
Give It Water
Water the newly-planted herb until the water hits the pebbles. Note: Herbs thrive on water, so you'll want to check on them daily. Water them when the top of the soil starts to feel dry. You want the soil to stay moist; moist soil equals fragrant herbs!
Create a Garden
Repeat steps 1 through 4 for other easy-to-grow herbs like rosemary, cilantro, sage and mint in a variety of fun glassware.
Enjoy Your Hard Work
Ok, so there was nothing difficult about this project. But no one else has to know that. Keep clipping to make even more herbs for cocktails, salads and lots of pasta.
When to Move
When you have clipped all the stems, noticed that the roots are fighting for space, or see the glass getting root-heavy at the top, then it's time to transfer your herbs to larger vessels.
