Space is limited, make a magnetic herb garden

How to make a magnetic herb garden. It happens on this land of ours.


There is nothing better than having fresh herbs on hand in the kitchen. When space is an issue and there’s no room for extra pots to clog up the counter space, think outside the box.

You can keep plants off the counter by using magnetic planters that will stick to the side of the front of your refrigerator. All you need are magnetic planters, your favorite herbs, such as rosemary, parsley or mint, a spoon and a permanent marker. As a general rule, a black permanent marker works best for the decor.

Label each magnetic planter and include simple designs and let them dry completely. Then use your spoon to carefully extract the root ball from each herb that you will transfer to the magnetic pots. Be careful not to dig too close to the stems of the plant or you may cut off sensitive roots, removing the nutrients necessary for continued growth. Transfer the herb to the magnetic planter, then stick it in your fridge.

Repeat the process for each of your herbs, and wa-la, you’ve just created your own magnetic garden.
