It’s completely possible to grow your own herb garden indoors with the ease of an instant wall planter in your home. You can save money on fresh herbs and enjoy the added benefits of free organic culinary herbs picked fresh from from your own wall planter.
In this post I’ll share with you the best wall planter I’ve started using in my own home to add some fresh basil, mint and herbal flowers to my recipes without having to leave the kitchen!
One hurdle I see a lot of beginners have is wanting to grow a garden inside but worrying about pets and children knocking over indoor pots and making a mess of dirt all over the floor.
With the trend of beautiful macrame hanging plants coming back into style it’s time to add some actual herbs to our indoor growing plans as well.
I absolutely love the idea of indoor gardening solutions to help moms bring some greenery back into their homes and indoor living spaces. This quick tutorial will help you do just that.
In this post I share with you some ideas for growing an instant garden on your wall, from your ceiling and on your countertops to bring more gardening joy, cleaner air and peace to your space.

DIY HERB BOX INDOOR GARDEN PROJECT
The large Instant Wall Planter seen in the photo is a size 8×10 frame.
I was happy with the rustic decorative frame that arrived when I ordered the kit online from Nature Hills.
The frame has a finished size of 13 3/16″ tall by 11 5/8″ wide and 2 3/4″ deep.
It can be hung on a wall or placed upright on its easel back. You can even lay it flat on a tabletop, where it will become a lovable living focal point!
It couldn’t be easier to create and maintain a Succulent wall planter! Simply select enough of your favorite young succulents and Cactus soil and follow the instructions to design, pin and display.
I planted mint, marigolds and basil in my planter. Once the herbs get further along in their growth I’ll hang the planter vertical.
Lay your do-it-yourself Instant Wall Planter flat.
Next, pop your cute, new plants out of their pot and arrange them to pack the polymer planter box.
Fill in with extra soil as needed for a nice, tight fit.
Another option, but not always necessary depending on what you are planting, would be to plant living moss to keep plants in place better.
Once your creation is finished, pin it into place with the included pins to create a root securing grid.
Use both the short pins and long pins to snugly secure the plants within the planter box.
See how easy it is to plant it, pin it and display it on your wall or tabletop?
For wall-hung displays, Nature Hills recommends using drywall anchors that hold at least 30 pounds for extra safety.
For a table-top display, install the easel back and prop it upright where all your guests can admire your handiwork! Or, simply lay it flat on your table for a sleek, modern presentation.

BEST HERBS FOR PLANTING INDOORS
I recommend planting herbs that you use often when planting indoors.
It’s also a great idea to plant herbs that smell nice, repel any indoor pests like ants or flies, and ones that can be added to almost any dish like lemon balm, mint and parsley.

How to Care for your Indoor Garden
Ongoing care is made easier with a built-in watering tray and removable water reservoir.
Spray your garden evenly; pour water at the top or add ice cubes on top of the water reservoir and let them melt for consistent water across all the roots.
