Check out Offbeat Homie Christie’s “balcony herb garden,” which is a fancy way of saying coffee cans, hung with zip ties. When asked how plants performed in coffee cans, she explained:
They did extremely well in the cans! We actually had to move some of the mint it got so huge. We have a house and an acre of land now but if I was to do this again, I would leave more room at the top so when watering, it did not spill out so easily.
So start saving those cans this winter so you can start growing those herbs next spring!
