Nothing quite beats using freshly grown herbs in cooking, rather than dried herbs, and they’re relatively easy to grow on your kitchen windowsill or outside in the garden.
If you’re looking to create a feature herb garden, then here’s an easy way to get going – rather than having to dig out a plot yourself, why not buy this wooden hexagonal planter for your herbs?
The herb wheel planter is made from timber and has six roomy compartments suitable for planting a selection of herbs in.
You do need to do a bit of self-assembly to put it together, but once made, you can use it in a corner of your patio, or even as a small raised bed area in a border.
If this herb planter is a bit too big for your garden, then they also have lots of other wooden planters available that would be perfect for herbs, like this Forest Garden Caledonian tiered raised bed or the Forest Garden cascade planter (this would be particularly good if you have limited space).15
