I am in love with my mason jar her garden.This project took less than an hour, requires no power tools and I got it right the first time! The supply list is short and inexpensive too. And, the best part of this fun farmhouse project was my family was impressed with the addition to a quiet kitchen corner (the corner on the left next to the window).
Before I made this mason jar herb garden I didn’t know what plumbing clamps were exactly. I knew they were in the plumbing aisle, but I wasn’t sure what I was looking for once I got to the aisle. These clamps were stocked in several sizes. I think I grabbed the medium size clamps. When in doubt go up a size because it just takes a pair of pliers to snip off the excess strap.
I bought 3 plumbing clamps. The small screw on the side allowed me to tighten the clamp around the mason jar. I stained a piece of scrap wood from my lumber stash and eyeballed the spacing between the clamps down the length of the board. I used tiny screws (technical term) to attach to the board. The small clamps on the side are used to tighten the clamp around the mason jar.
I filled the jars with gravel and potting soil after I attached the jars. I would suggest filling each jar with the gravel, soil and the herbs before securing into the clamp. It’s just easier. I ended up with more soil on the floor than in the jar when I attempted to add the soil after the mason jar was attached.
