So you may think indoor herb gardens are your grandmother’s thing. Think again. With all the cool indoor herb garden ideas, accessories and gadgets out there, a new generation has embraced the love for the green thumb.
Reasons? They’re as fresh as it gets. From the pot to the plate in less than a second. Millennials happen to be a very health conscious generation. We can also think of many budget reasons, but they’re less poetic. Getting an indoor herb garden started depends on your dedication (they’re not babies, don’t get scared), but they do need care. An indoor herb garden is also an asset when it comes to home decor: you can use your little herb babies as centerpieces or wall decor.
If you haven’t yet embraced the plant lover within, we have rounded up the perfect accessories to get you started on your real farm hero quest!
1. Dress Up Your Walls:
Ditch the common kitchen art and replace them with your very own vegetable wall. Showcase your beauties as you would art. You can get creative with the chalkboard background and name your babies: ‘Little Rosemary May’. What else do you need to breathe life into your kitchen? You can get these beauties here.
2. A Little French Allure:
As we all know (or should), herbs happen to be the foundation of french cooking. There’s a little classic bouquet called Herbes De Provence that will magically transform a harmless meal into a palate feast. Let’s follow the wisdom of french chefs and start cultivating our very own garden feast with these ‘Jardinier’ planters. Buy them and infuse that french ‘je ne sais quoi’ into your dishes. You may find that the secret is not always love, but rather fresh herbs.
3. Old Farmer’s Charm
Call us crazy, but humanity will always gravitate towards its roots. After much struggle, we finally became aware of the importance of cultivating our own food and caring for the earth. Wasn’t that the philosophy of our ancestors? This nostalgia train got us thinking of the old farmer’s life: simple but meaningful.
We got a little dramatic here, but we do love the old farmer’s charm. Get these old school buckets, dress them up in greens, and see how they’re instantly embellished.
4. Grandmothers Know Best
And love best too. You have seen your grandmother taking care of probably everything around you (even your mom), so its not an empty cliché to associate your grandma’s love and the gardening magic. And… grandma has treasures! Vintage pieces that will make our hearts skip a beat if we were to get a hold of them.
How about combining your grandma’s treasures with the caring lessons she taught you? The result: a little vintage garden that will make you sigh at first sight. If you can’t get a hold of your granny’s china, buy these white ladies, and say they were hers. No one will notice!
5. Sculture Pieces
Who said you couldn’t combine concrete with the beauty of nature? If you ask us, these sculptural pieces are precious little houses for your herbs. (these look great for cactus too, if you still feel a little challenged.)
Create your own concrete jungle at home by getting these “plant buildings.”
6. Tea Party
