Upcycling wooden pallete for a herb garden

Living in an apartment with limited space and wanting to have herbs handy for meals made me creative & I looked for a wooden pallete for this herb garden project.

I found what I needed in a residential bin & I carted it home. I scrubbed the wooden pallete with sandpaper, used some soft twist garden wire, which I bought from the hardware shop, to secure each herb pot to the wooden pallete.

The herbs featured in the photo are rosemary, mint, chilli, basil, parsley & indian borage.

This is a simple idea for a small space.

L is for Lillies

Inspired by the manicured garden at Keukenhof, Holland, I bought some plants and bulbs at a garden shop on-site.

I planted the lillies according to the simple instructions & nothing really seemed to happen for months but I persisted.

Mother nature, she always gives me such beautiful surprises.

Note: I left London for a about a year & when I arrived home, the lillies bloomed. How welcoming!
