How to Make a PVC Pipe Herb Garden – Thrift Diving

Did you know with just a few tools, PVC pipe, and plywood you can make a vertical herb garden that can be hung outside, but also brought inside to hang on your wall when it gets cold? Here’s how you do it. πŸ™‚ It’s only 8″ wide so when hung vertically, it takes up very little space. Now you can have herbs all year round–indoors AND outdoors. πŸ™‚

Materials list is on the blog post: https://thriftdiving.com/herb-garden-planter-pvc-pipe/

Cost for PVC and wood = $30 (minus the soil and plants). All other materials I had on hand!

    Looks very nice however, I am concerned that pvc and most plastics leech into the food …

    Can i marry you? Honestly watching you really is inspiring. I am a single mom and after my x left i didnt even know how to do the garbage . Now i find myself changing my car battery in parking lots, fixing the plumbing, gardening, painting.. But your next level!!!! Love it

    Soil ! Wow, you used the word soil. That is so right. Thankyou.

    I am from India, were were call our country Bharat Mata.
    Bharat is the actual ancient name of India ..and Mata means mother.
    We NEVER call the soil of our mother dirt.

    Dirt, is what many in your country call the part of mother earth that grows the food that keeps you alive!!!!

    Hi Serena, this is a great idea – love it. I purchased some seeds from the Dollar Tree last month. I got chives, parsley, basil and thyme. I will have to wait until I can get out to get containers and soil. I would love to have one like this one☺. Your boys worked right alongside you doing a great job. Stay safe. Wishing you and your family a blessed and Happy Easter❀

  21. Fun mom on March 24, 2021 at 11:44 pm

  28. Laurie O'Moore on March 24, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Fun idea! I love how you were teaching your boys how to use power tools and stay safe.

  29. Knut Egil Benjaminson on March 24, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Hi! I was wondering abt your experience with this over time. Is there anything you would’ve done differently? Super great idea, btw!!πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨

  30. ToolBox Divas on March 24, 2021 at 11:49 pm

  33. Coconuts & Palms on March 24, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    New subscriber. Loved this video so can’t wait to create my own herb garden. Fab idea and a great reason to use my new Ryobi tools. So excited!!

  34. Ankush Kumar Rana on March 24, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Thats great…:)

  35. Ana Findlay on March 24, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Great idea and beautifully crafted ….but it should be deeper to hold more soil, those plants are never going to thrive in such a small reservoir!! Thanks

  36. Lauretta VanLandingham on March 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Just what I’ve been looking for! 😊

  37. Sufiness on March 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Hi. I learned that that writing on PVC the labeling it can be removed with a light sandpaper 😊 very fine grain. Hope that helps somebody. 😊

  38. Mizo Mint on March 24, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    I won’t be making this…. However, I enjoyed watching the entire thing and even more than the planter, I enjoyed seeing a mother spend time with her children doing something like this other than abandoning them to video games 24/7. lol I’m sure they will remember this and they probably learned so much. I bet they’ll be awesome young men when they get older with such an awesome mother that spends time with them.

  39. Ron2nd2none on March 25, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Soooooooo clever
