You will need:

  • 1L of Cuprinol Garden Shades
  • 1x Old wooden crate or toolbox
  • 1x 2” paintbrush
  • Drill and drill bits
  • Screwdriver
  • Tape measure
  • Rope (nylon cord is our recommendation) cut into four equal lengths
  • Your favourite herbs - oregano and sage are perfect choices for vertical gardening!

Step 1
Drill drainage holes in the bottom of the wooden crate and sand off the rough edges to keep your herbs healthy. This will allow the water to drain and stop the wood from rotting.

Step 2
Drill a hole for the rope in each corner and sand smooth.

Step 3
Apply two coats of your favourite Cuprinol Garden Shades colour inside and out, allowing it to dry thoroughly between coats (green herbs look great against Coastal Mist!).

Step 4
Cut 4 equal lengths of rope then thread each one through the holes in the corners and tie them on securely.

Step 5
Attach the ropes to a metal hanging ring with a knot.

Step 6
Once hung on your bracket, fill your brand new planter with your favourite herbs, ready to be added to your salad at your next barbecue!
