Starting an Upside Down Herb Garden…Again

Posted on Jul 20 2009 - 3:00am by Mike Lieberman

I finally got around to starting my upside down herb garden after killing it last month.

Since the first go around was such a success, I decided to take it slowly this time and just planted some parsley.

Here’s a step by step as to how I planted the parsley upside down in my herb garden. I stress “gently” because I was anything but in the first go round.

  • Gently separate out one of the parsley plants.
  • Gently place into the container.
  • Feed through and gently pull through the bottom.
  • Pat down the soil.
  • Fill container with soil.
  • Tie to spot.
  • Fill with water until it begins to leak.

    Have yet to have success with the herbs, but I did too many ill advised things the first go around.

    I am sure that you can do some plants upside down. I've heard of people doing tomatoes and cucumbers.
