If your like me, you have the greatest herbs in the summer... then in winter, no more fresh herbs for you. I wanted some herbs in my kitchen to be able to use year round, so I decided to make one.
Supplies you'll need:
Rectangular 'Styrofoam' box ( Not truly styrofoam, its more squishy. It's actually EPP, expanded polypropylene. Thanks macrumpton! I got mine out of a laptop box, it's used to protect the ends of the laptop)
Thin strip of cardboard
Potting soil or Dirt
Herbs ( You can use seeds, but if you already have herbs growing outside, there are probably baby ones sprouting near them)
Step 1: Start with the planter
Okay, so take your 'styrofoam' . Mine had holes in the bottom, so I took some card board and cut it about the length of the bottom to stop too much water from leaking. ( Some will still leak, see how to remedy in step #3)
