How to grow a vertical herb garden

When space is limited but you want lots of fresh, tasty herbs to cook with, get creative by using vertical wooden shelving.


You will need:

  • 2x 1L of Cuprinol Garden Shades in your favourite colours
  • 2” paint brush, small roller and a tray
  • Unpainted wooden ladder shelving
  • Terracotta pots which you can paint to match your colour scheme
  • A selection of your favourite growing herbs basil or parsley are great for salads, and mint and rosemary perfect for those summer cocktails

Step 1
Pick up your paintbrush and start by painting the legs with your first colour. Apply two coats and allow to dry thoroughly before taping off the edges where the legs meet the ladders.

Step 2
Let’s roll! Apply two coats of your second colour to the ladder’s steps with a small roller for flat edges and a brush for the tricky bits.

Step 3
Once dry you’re ready you’re ready to start arranging your vertical garden. We’d say you should give trailing plants the penthouse step and shade loving herbs like chives, coriander and parsley stick to the bottom.
