Whether you want to improve your air quality (like with the plants in the photo) or have a “kitchen garden” and be able to conveniently snip off herbs while cooking, this is a super and fun design for a mason jar wall planter! So grow whatever you like! My dad gave me a hard time for not having any edibles on the vertical garden that I had just installed in my bedroom. Naturally, I asked him if he would be down for building one with me in the kitchen.
Much to my surprise, he was up for the task, so we embarked on designing a Mason jar herb and plant garden. Since installation, it’s worked very well, and I’m happy to report that all plants are alive, thriving and well. The key with Mason jars (since they don’t have natural drainage) is to include stones and charcoal on the bottom to help create “drainage” on the inside of the jar.
Place the wooden board on the wall so you can get a sense of where you would like to position it. Note: If you’re growing herbs, you’ll want to keep the herb garden in close proximity to a window, because plants like rosemary and sage like a lot of light. If you place the boards in indirect light, you probably should grow other species of plants — like ferns and ponytail palms, for example.
