I have one plant that I have successfully kept alive (besides my annual flowers in my flower garden, they just take care of themselves). It is a funky little garden plant that sits on my kitchen window sill. It needs water once a week and gets sun each afternoon. Other than that, I have a brown thumb. I’ve decided to try to turn my thumb green, this time with fresh herbs and adorable DIY washi tape garden markers.

I headed to The Home Depot, because I knew that I would find exactly what I would need to start my own herb garden. I found these amazingly awesome herbs to plant in this funky little planter box in my backyard.

What I love about these herbs are 1) they are already growing and 2) you plant them in the pot! I know cool, right! I love that I don’t have to do much to plant them. 

Easy to Plant Herbs with Home Depot and thebensonstreet.com

Start by digging a hole. Then soak the pot with water. Put the herb plant in the hole. Fill hole with soil. I added a little bit of potting soil near the top just because I like how nice it looks. And there you have it. An instant herb garden!  Easy to plant herbs at thebensonstreet.comPlant all your favorite herbs from The Home Depot. I love to make fresh pesto, so I am starting with basil to see how well my thumb works. 

To be able to tell the herbs apart, I knew I needed a cute way to mark them.

Grab some washi tape, scissors, straws or wooden sticks.
Easy Garden Markers at thebensonstreet.comWrite the name of the herb with permanent marker on the tape. Pull off a long enough strip of the tape with herb name and wrap around straw or stick to create a little flag. Cut off the excess and make a little flag.

  1. You know what cool about those straws? Maybe the rain water will funnel right down to the roots? Yeah, I sort of have a brown thumb too. And I love those planters – they’re like little chimneys with dirt in them!
