Here’s a super fun ‘herbal project’ that we discovered and had to share – how to make your own Mason jar herb garden. This should be a great one for the kids to participate in also! The link to the full tutorial is at the end of my short “introduction”.

One of the great things about this project is that the entire garden is portable – meaning that you can put them on a windowsill, outdoors (in fine weather) or wherever. 🙂 The other good thing of course is that you can customize and plant all of your favorites. Imagine having the plants in a row on your windowsill, with fresh leaves just waiting to be picked, washed and added to your recipes.



Note that you will have to be careful with the amount that you water – because jars can dry out easily if neglected: Also, a jar has no drainage so you will not want to over-water; neither should you leave them out in the rain to get flooded.

If you want to learn all about herbs, we have fully detailed pages listing over 150, including many of the most popular. The index of these pages is here – http://www.herbs-info.com/list-of-herbs.html

    If you put an inch of rocks in the bottom it will drain better

    Hi it is nice to know how to grow a herb garden.thank you.

    Treat these like a terrarium. Use a layer of aquarium charcoal in the bottom of the jar. This helps keep the soil from becoming sour especially if there is some standing water. I usually put a layer of sand, then charcoal with soil on top, and don’t over water. Water will be filtered by the charcoal and rest in the sand below. The plants will send their roots into the sand layers for a drink.

    Love this idea! Unfortunately I haven’t had much luck growing my herbs inside 🙁 This sprout then die. Not matter what I do 🙁 Any suggestions??

  • By Janelle, December 19, 2013 @ 10:13 pm

    I love this idea. I think I’m going to try it and write a post about my results. Thank you for sharing this!

    @ Jennifer: make sure that you are using soil that doesn’t contain any “weed killers”…sometimes the chemicals kill the sensitive herbs.

    I’ve never been good at growing things but this looks simple enough. How much water and how often do they need to be watered?

  • By Debra Thompson, January 28, 2014 @ 6:34 am

    Where do you buy the tags, that goes on the jars ? T.y.

  • By Patricia, February 27, 2014 @ 2:38 pm

    Thank You Stephanie, you are rigth, some rocks in the bottom help to control the amount of water because it drains and you can see it.

  • By Crystal, February 27, 2014 @ 4:40 pm

    I’m going to spray the outside with black board paint so I can write in the outside what the herb is!

  • By King's Queen, September 18, 2015 @ 3:02 pm

    So many great ideas. I am going to try this. Thanks Karen for the sand charcoal soil layering technique. I have a huge pot of spearmint. Can I transplant it into the jar or do I have to grow it from seeds??
