Make a vertical planter wall from dollar store plastic bins or 2 ltr pop bottles. Maximize your growing space for herbs and oxygen giving green plants. This is a one hour project to set up and plants are easily arranged. No special skills or tools are required. Best in drywall rather than plaster.
You will need 2 screws for each planter, a screwdriver, something to make holes with in plastic ( heated nail or drill) pencil, scissors, cutting pliers are nice for starting the cut.
No matter what happens it will look great when all grows in. Even better if you paint your containers to match the wall.
