Hang your indoor herb garden up high and keep your countertops open as work spaces. That way, they're still in reach while cooking but won't take up too much space. Our simple design keeps the focus on the green plants and surrounding decor rather than drawing attention away.
Mark spots for anchoring the assembled pipe, elbows, and flanges to wall. Use a level to make sure markings are straight. Drill pilot holes, then screw to wall. See the full instructions on hanging a pipe rod here.
Loop decorative rope over the hanging pipe and decide how low you want each egg-shape planter to hang. Cut the rope, and string each end through the outside holes on either side of the planter. Tie a knot on the inside to keep the rope in place. Repeat with the rest of the planters you're hanging.
Fill each pot with soil, and pot the herbs. It is easier to fill the pots before hanging so you can see into the pots as you're planting. Once they are hung, some pots may be too high to see into.
Once all the herbs are planted, use a short length of ball chain and a fastener to attach the rope to the pipe. These loops make it easy to shift the planters around and slide them on the pipe. As you hang the planters, pay attention to their heights and arrange to your liking.
