Mama's Garden Jars

The grass is getting greener, the days are getting warmer and that can only mean one thing... my mom's spending her weekends in the garden. This year for Mother's Day I got her started on her herb garden.

After a trip to a local green house and Canadian Tire I was prepped for an afternoon of potting jars.

What is needed: 

  • jars (500mL)
  • a bag of potting soil 
  • a variety of potted herbs - If you are really on the ball, which I wasn't, you can do this from seed. 
  • basket 
  • twine 
  • tags

What to do:

  • Put some potting soil in each of the jars 
  • Place in plant. Remove extra soil to make it fit. 
  • Water the plants. 
  • Tie twine around the mouth of the jars and attach tag with name of the herb.
  • Place in basket. 
* the herbs will eventually have to be transplanted when they outgrow these little jars. 

Happy Mother's Day!
