Grow Your Herbs Right With Jackson & Perkins’ Modern Sprout Eco Planter
Herbs are often the cook’s entry point into gardening, and what better way to grow your windowsill collection than with a beautiful, easy-to-maintain planter that functions simultaneously as decor? Jackson & Perkins‘ Modern Sprout Eco Planter is fun way to grow organic herbs year-round.
The frosted glass vessel with exposed water and soil reserves functions as a minimalist interpretation of a terrarium (one that actually bears food). A built-in water-wicking system delivers moisture and nutrients to plants when they need it to spare owners the burden of watering. (You don’t even have to remember to water the herbs daily— just fill the planter’s water container once a week and leave it in a sunny spot.)
Herbal planters can make any room look warm and inviting, and we like this offering from Jackson & Perkins because it makes it easy to grow herbs anywhere– even in a tiny New York City apartment or a shadeless Los Angeles bungalow. Try bringing an herb planter to your next dinner gathering as a gift instead of wine, or place one in your kitchen counter to spruce up a cocktail when you yourself are hosting. Whether you’re growing mint for your tea or cilantro for your tacos, this planter provides organic, high-quality produce that can be regrown year after year. Simply rinse out the net pot, add new soil and seeds, and soon the vessel will pay for itself!
