Not enough space in your place to grow some herbs? Turn an old shoe organiser into a vertical garden!

Here are some easy steps to follow to have a thriving spread of herbs to flavour your favourite dishes.

You will need:

  • An old shoe organiser
  • Small gravel
  • Potting soil
  • Herbs

Step #1

Poke  some little holes at the bottom front of each pocket. You can use a utility knife or a nail.

Step #2

Line the bottom of each pocket with some small gravel stones (to allow the soil to drain water)

Fill the pockets with potting soil, leaving 3 inch from the top. Add your herb plant in each pocket and top up with extra soil to give stability to the plant.

Remember to put tall plants in the top pockets so they have space to grow.
Step #3

Water the plant and have fun decorating some labels to name them. You can use wooden pegs and write on them!
