Recently I was in Flying Tiger and noticed some really cute vases / plant pots, and wanted to have a little collection of plants and herbs by my window, so I bought them, a plant, and some seeds and thought I’d write a blog post about how I like re-potting and planting new seeds.
There were so many cute pots in the shop. I picked up a few coloured pots, and a pink flower vase, too. I also picked up a plain white one in the shape of a camera. They have a few different object shaped vases and pots, and I’m sure I’m going to go back and pick up some more so I can grow my herb collection!
I wanted a plant for the larger pot, so I went to a local garden centre and picked up a very cute plant called Glechoma Hederacea (if you’re interested). I then bought coriander and garlic chives seeds, as those two herbs are probably the two I use the most.
I filled the purple pot with a little earth at the bottom before tipping the plant out of it’s original plastic pot, and putting it inside the purple one. I then filled the gaps at the side with more earth and that was that done!
I also filled the small and camera pots up with earth almost to the top, before popping in a few of my chosen seeds on top. I then topped it off with a little more earth and lightly patted it down so the seeds were covered.
I chose to put the chives in the smaller blue pot, and the coriander in the camera pot as I thought it would be cute to have the bushy coriander leaves growing out over the top of the camera. I also think it would be nice if the camera was painted (I might do this in the future if I can find paint that can work) but the plain white is also nice.
Give your plants and seeds a water, and that’s it! I’m excited to watch these herbs grow, and to buy some more seeds and pots to grow my windowsill collection.
Do you have any cute or unusual plant pots, or are you into herb gardening?
