DIY Mason Jar Garden

A DIY mason jar garden is great for people who :
  • Live in places where the weather isn’t ideal for outdoor gardening
  • Don’t have a yard to garden in
  • Prefer to keep a closer eye on their herbs

Firstly, let’s establish what herbs can be grown inside :
  • Chives
  • Parsley
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Mint
  • Cilantro
  • Lemon grass
  • Sage

The above are among the easiest herbs to grow inside. Now that we know what we’re planting, let’s talk about how to plant em!

To assemble your DIY mason jar garden, you’ll need a few things :

1. Mason Jars

2. Stones (enough to fill 2-3 inches of each mason jar)

3. Soil

4. Herbs or seeds

The actual process of planting is pretty straight forward.

1. First start by adding stones into the mason jar. Since mason jars don’t have any drainage holes, these stones will act like an interior drainage system. Fill 2-3 inches of the jar with the stones.

2. Your next step is going to be to add soil. You’ll wanna fill up the jar with soil until about 1-2 inches away from the top lip.

3. For Seeds : You’ll probably find instructions on the package provided by the manufacturer, but a good general rule of planting seeds is to simply place them on top of the soil, add another inch or two of soil, and water lightly.

For herb transfer into Mason Jar : Gently remove herb from original container and place into mason jar. Cover roots with soil and pack firmly. Water lightly.

And that’s it! It may also be a good idea to label your herbs that way as they grow you can track and enjoy them accordingly!
