adhesive labels will do. I also used a Crafty Croc white chalk marker. BTW… those are my affiliate links. Let these dry while you do your planting.

Place a handful of rocks in the bottom of each tin can. This will allow for drainage.

Add a small scoop of dirt. You won’t need much, because the plants already come with dirt. Use your best judgement on this. Carefully, place the plant into the can and top off with additional soil if necessary. After you are finished with all of your planting, be sure to water them.

Wipe off any dirt from the cans with a cloth and add your labels.

I have to admit that I’m kinda loving how these turned out. About the plants, if you have time, you could easily grow your own herbs from seed. However, if you are in a time crunch or are just impatient like me, small starter plants from the garden center work great.

If these herbs are snipped and used frequently, you should be able to keep them in the cans for a long while. However, there may come a time when you will need to find them a new home out in your garden. If that happens, just start some new ones!

Do you know someone who would enjoy getting this as a Mother’s Day gift?
