24 Herb garden ideas

Did  you all know it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday? Hard to miss.

To my children…


Okay, moving on. I wanted to give you some great last-minute herb garden ideas for mom or grandma for mother’s day. Plants are kind of the thing for Mother’s Day,  aren't they. I wonder who started that? Was it a garden company? Must have been.

To my children…


Okay, to you that do want plants. Or want to gift plants. I have some great ideas for you. Not only do I have great ideas from here at NellieBellie but I am also sharing a clipboard of great herb garden ideas from the wonderful content at Hometalk.

A wimp I shall not be!


1. A garden rock caterpillar.
This little guy has been my #1 project…to date! go figure. Simple to make and oh so adorable! Make a mini version for inside Mom’s potted plant!

It doesn’t get much sweeter then this. Best part…you can customize this SO easily! Pop over to Hometalk’s channel and watch the video with me showing off this great project!

3. Rolling herb garden

For that lady that loves to tinker in her garden. This rolls around to allow for easy bringing in and out of doors.


4. Outdoor pinwheel.
These are easy to make and inexpensive. They would add a nice touch to a plant. Or, make a whole factory of them to really grab Mom’s attention!


5. Ruffled duct tape pots.
Yes, these are duct tape! Yes, they are ruffled. And yes, they are darn cute!! Make a pot or two for Mom!
