I like to cook with fresh herbs, but my garden space is reserved for larger vegetables. This hangs in the sun right outside of my kitchen door and will soon be loaded with basil, thyme etc. It’s made with some scrap cedar, that I plan on leaving unfinished. I’d appreciate any comments.

Are drainage holes needed?

I have never grown Herbs so please forgive my lack of insight.

Nice design!

Each level has 3 holes which drain on to the next tier

Fantastic, I like cooking with fresh herbs as well. I will have one done to plant in by Monday.
Great idea!
thanks for sharing,

This is a tremendous idea, well designed and will be well used, I predict. I also predict it will be copied many times. Thanks for sharing.

Any dimensions. I am worried it will be too small for the plants to grow?

Do you have pictures filled with herbs

All of the pots are about 7 inches high – the top 2 stick out 8 inches and the bottom 2, 10 inches. I am planting it this weekend. I have seen smaller herb planters, so I think it will work. I’ll let you know in a few weeks. If not, I’ll build it bigger next time around. Thanks for all of the positive comments.

This is awesome! Are those sides just glued on or are there some nails I can’t see?
