Herb Spirals from Hometalk.com

I recently discovered the Herb Spiral via posts on Facebook from Hometalk.com. I fell in love.

But here’s the problem, I’m not much of an herb grower other than catnip for my cats.

But who says I can’t plant other things in a spiral? I picture beautiful flowers in a spiral formation and am now determined to do it.

After doing some reading, I’ve learned a few things.

1. It’s easy to plan but can get costly and time consuming to make.  There are a few different ways to make a spiral too.   View instructions here.

2. Plants need to be placed based on their water needs.  Water will drain more from the top and be retained closer to the bottom of the spiral.

3. There are a variety of designs and materials that can be used to make your spiral.  It all depends on how much effort you’re willing to put in, what your budget is and what look you’re going for.  Visit here for ideas and inspiration.

Check back for updates on the herb spiral–once the weather breaks, I’ll be outside planning mine!
