VERTICAL HERB / VEGGIE PLANTER LETS YOU GROW YEAR ROUND

Vertical Herb/Veggie Planter Lets You Grow Year Round

Good Morning from The Seed Guy. I wanted to let you know about a Vertical Herb/Veggie planter you can build that will let you grow Herbs and Salad type Veggies year round. You can start your Greens and Herbs outside in this, and then bring inside when the temps start dropping. Besides Herbs, you can grow some of these Veggies (Lettuce, Kale, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Arugula). Families that might not have a huge area to grow in would definitely find this useful.

It's best if you regularly trim back the plants — and eat the cuttings, as Herbs are freshest and best for you straight from the plant. They will also keep producing when you trim back as you need.

**Note--If you bring planter in your house to grow Herbs and Veggies, the best thing to do would be to put a plastic sheet under the planter to catch any water that might drip when you water plants. **

This project can be completed in just a few hours, and is built from long-lasting cedar, but you could use other types of wood for it. You can cut the lumber yourself, or you can have the boards pre-cut at your local Home Depot, Lowes, or other home improvement store.
