10 Charming Planters That Make It Easy to Grow an Indoor Herb Garden
Stop overbuying fresh herbs only to watch them spoil in the fridge. Instead, get an indoor herb garden and grow your own.
Indoor Herb Garden Tub
Plant a garden of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme in this self-watering planter ($40). A handy, built-in water level indicator tells you when (and how often) your plants need a drink.
Hanging or Freestanding Woven Pot
This rectangular-shaped woven wicker planter ($50) comes with silicone feet so it can safely and gently stand alone on an indoor surface. Align it with a wall or window, and plant fragrant basil or oregano inside its metal pot. This versatile beauty even comes with hardware for wall-mounting.
Stackable Vertical Garden
One of the key principles for maintaining an orderly home is taking advantage of vertical space, and this indoor herb garden ($33) does just that. Five staggered, stackable polypropylene pots hold up to 15 different herbs and come with built-in drainage that allows for a trickle-down self-watering design.
Rustic Charm Herb Trio Kit
This terra-cotta trio ($36) comes with a set of slate markers, so you can distinguish your thyme from your tarragon. The ceramic planters fit on your windowsill and make for an adorable indoor herb garden for growers who love Mediterranean design. This also makes a great gift!
Repurposed Wine Bottle Garden
This upcycled indoor herb garden ($36) not only reuses wine bottles, but comes with everything you need to grow five different herbs (each sold separately)—plus, they’re self-watering. This garden uses hydroponics—meaning the herbs grow in a soil-free, nutrient-rich mixture.
Indoor Herb Garden in Wooden Frame
Wood, ceramic and twine are the three materials used to create this sweet, modern indoor herb garden ($72) with its hanging pots that resemble air plants. It works as a standalone unit but can also be mounted to the wall.
Farmhouse Decor Pot and Tray Set
If farmhouse-chic is the look you’re after, look no further than this indoor herb garden made of hammered, galvanized steel ($19). The trio of textured pots come in a matching drainage tray, that has protective pads on the underside. Galvanized steel is weather-resistant, so this planter can withstand outdoor use, too.
Cedar Herb Garden Planter
This set of three red cedar mini planters and a matching tray ($55) come weathered to look like they’ve been around for ages. The rot- and insect-resistant indoor herb garden with chalkboard labels comes with your choice of six heirloom herb seeds and a lightweight, nutrient-dense soil-free planting mixture.
Herb Planter with Scissors
As the name implies, this white ceramic trough-style planter ($30) comes with its own pair of scissors for snipping herbs—and a handy, built-in holder for the shears. The indoor herb garden is build to sit on your windowsill and has room to grow about four different herbs.
3 Herb Pots in a Leather Handled Tray
Reminiscent of a tiny filing cabinet, this indoor herb garden ($35) is actually made of steel with a powder-coated finish. A leather handle on each side offers an unexpectedly rustic touch. Although the pots come pre-labeled, all you need is some masking tape to make your own DIY labels.
