Dried or fresh? There’s only one answer for the enthusiastic home cook. Herbs from the garden (or the kitchen window sill) make the meal. Kimberley’s design team dug up three display worthy herb garden ideas.

Beyond Basil (above)
If you’re ready to go beyond basil it’s likely you need a large vessel to contain your choices. This rustic barrel inspired pot is ideal for a country setting.

Tip: Starting with the vessel you want to fill simplifies the decision process when it’s time to purchase herbs.


Glass Hothouse (above)
Any glass container is ideally suited to hold an herb garden. The angled opening of this contemporary vase makes reaching in for clippings a snap…a snip?


Vintage Pots
If you crave order, you’ll love placing your herbs in individual pots.

Tip: Use a label, such as the vintage tin ones seen here, as decoration or as a tool to teach children about herbs.
