This earthy centrepiece not only looks sophisticated but gives you fresh herbs all season long.
You will need:
- Fresh potted herbs (rosemary, thyme, basil)
- Potting soil
- Potting gravel
- Small plant pot
- Garden trowel
- Pebbles (optional)
This centrepiece is perfect for al fresco dining. Place the centrepiece in the middle of your table and encourage your guests to snap leaves off and add them to their dining plates.
Add a layer of gravel to the bottom of your container, followed by potting soil. Remove the herbs from their pots and gently loosen the roots. In the centrepiece pot, dig a hole in the soil for each herb (approx. 3-4 inches deep depending on size of the root). Place the herbs inside the holes, back-filling with soil to cover up the roots to the base of the stem. Pat the soil down to remove any air pockets and cover the top layer of soil with decorative pebbles. Keep in a sunny place and water regularly.
Note: When choosing your container, be sure to use a gardening pot with proper drainage holes.
Suggested Herbs: Rosemary, Thyme, Basil, Parsley
