    Favorite herbs? Let’s see–there’s wolfsbane, deadly nightshade and of course, mandrake! Just kidding.
    I like basil (lots of this for pesto) rue, dittany of Crete, white sage, rosemary and golden thyme. Thanks for sharing.

    How do you fertilize your mason jar herbs?

    How neat and super sweet, question should these be kept inside during rainy days ?
    Thanks so much for very smart herb gardening tips

  12. callmemeeks on March 29, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Can anyone help? I’d like those exact plant hangers brackets to use on our patio but I can’t find them.

  13. Kathryn Savage on March 29, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Great vid! 🤘🏽

  18. RAW fruitarians reversing DIS-ease on March 29, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Such a beautiful lady and I really love the idea I will be planting in some mason jars lavender, basil, lemon balm, coriander, parsley and more.

  19. Elaine Sian on March 29, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    You are awesome… I’ll start mine. I’ll keep you posted.

  20. MizzRivera86 on March 29, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    So want to do this, I’ve got to find some herbs!I’ll probably do this in my kitchen🌱🌾🍃

  21. Ms Fox on March 29, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    This is amazing thank you so much. As a novice to herbalism and starting my at home mini garden in my kitchen this video was so helpful and the tips you provided in caring for the herbs. Thank you, brilliant!

  22. Lance Lovecraft on March 29, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Mason jars look cool and all but how does it actually drain? the water will still be collected at the bottom. After a few waterings wouldn’t the water level rise into the soil?

  23. Lynnita Cooper on March 29, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Plant lavender, basil, lemon balm, peppermint, rosemary and/or sage to repel mosquitoes on your balcony. Double duty.

  24. Elliott Aaron on March 29, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    how big are your jars

  25. Hope Juscenko on March 29, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    Your voice, while narrating, is very calming, thank you.

  26. gusy629 on March 29, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Hey! Thanks for sharing. Yes, Mason Jars are very useful. I use 4 and 5 liters jars and paint them with chalked paint and grow hot pepper plants. Cheers

  27. Lynne K on March 30, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I found that the best time of day to water in a dry climate is in the evening. In a humid climate like I live in now, morning is best.

  28. HatedHero on March 30, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Rue and Thai Basil are amazing. I highly recommend them.

  29. Melanie Galindo on March 30, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Good Idea❣️ thanks

  30. E.T on March 30, 2021 at 12:03 am

    don’t expose roots to light… it will slow their progress

  33. 1BestCookie on March 30, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Where did you get that crate?

  34. sriansh agrawal on March 30, 2021 at 12:10 am

    is it possible to grow in india

  35. Aaron Bakeman on March 30, 2021 at 12:10 am

    this is SAD! you didn’t grow them plants, you didn’t build the garden box….. so you painted it and added some name tags.. WOW….

  36. LottaTroublemaker on March 30, 2021 at 12:11 am

    I have lived in an apartment and grown things on a balcony for more than two decades and I am sure of one thing, that "inside draining system" of yours will NOT work, simply because it isn’t a draining system, it does not drain away moisture, it just gives you a bit of moisture storage underneath the roots. All it takes, is one real downpur and your whole mason jar can be filled to the top with water. It is NO fun having to turn pots upside down while you try to drain the water only, at least not too much of your soil. I would strongly recommend that people stay away from using mason jars, it will so easily end out causing a lot of frustration and regrets… 😉 
    No, I know mason jars are in these days, they give the right retro, recycled look and all, but try to find and recycle some terracotta pots instead, those have proper draining holes. Or, buy some reasonable zinc pots/buckets, use a nail or an awl and a hammer to make drainage holes in the bottom and put those in those pretty boxes you made, it will look and work GREAT! I LOVE your boxes, would love a few myself! Looks so much better than most commercial ones! I think I’d go with zinc buckets/pots in the boxes myself, as it is light, cheap, gets a great matte patina after a little while and it tolerates frost, which is real important many places, including where I live where we have a long winter which can get real cold… 🙂 Have lots of fun with your herb garden, people! 🙂

    Great video and really cute! Bonus to receive the benefits of these great herbs not only for culinary, but also for medicinal uses. Also Sage and some other herbs are great for making smudge sticks, decorations and they smell wonderful! When you prune them back you can chop them up and fill ice cube trays and add a little water, once frozen put in ziplock bag and label it.

  38. Patti Robinson on March 30, 2021 at 12:16 am

    i love all the hints and suggestions for growing herbs thanks SO MUCH XXX

  39. Sylvia McTigue on March 30, 2021 at 12:16 am

    cute project. but you really need to add draining holes not to end up with mildew. herbs need to drain. easily done with glass drill bits from amazon; just attach to drill and attack that mason jar base!

  40. Hedonist - on March 30, 2021 at 12:18 am

    you look just like @emmymadeinjapan

  41. Amaani Sirajuddin on March 30, 2021 at 12:19 am

    where do you even get shelf brackets like that that you don’t have to drill? I’ve looked at all the lowes, home depot near me and online lmao

  42. Simply Vince on March 30, 2021 at 12:20 am

    My concens here would be root rot/mold with that "drainage system" but also I eould be concerned about them getting root bound since those are pretty tight containers for plants of that size.

  43. orcaASMR on March 30, 2021 at 12:20 am

    they call this a hempy bucket

  44. Goldenbricks31 AJ on March 30, 2021 at 12:21 am

  45. Fonda Sharkey-Wyatt on March 30, 2021 at 12:21 am

    I’ve started collecting different kinds of mints: sweet mint, spearmint, apple mint, peppermint, just for something different to try.

  46. boop bedoop on March 30, 2021 at 12:22 am

  47. dajube on March 30, 2021 at 12:22 am

  48. Kenneth Booe on March 30, 2021 at 12:23 am
