P. Allen Smith | 1-2-3 Done! - Creating an Herb Fountain For Your Garden | PBS

Duration: 01:12
Program: P. Allen Smith's Garden Home

This herb fountain was very easy to assemble and I've had a lot of fun enjoying the fresh herbs it has produced. The first thing you want to do is take 4 lightweight containers filled with a premium potting mix and stack them on top of each other from largest to smallest. Starting on the bottom, I planted a mixture of sage, Lemon variegated thyme, and oregano on the 3 lower levels. In the container on top, I planted rosemary because it grows upright where the others will spill over the edge. Be sure to water frequently and fertilize as needed. This herb fountain will not only provide you with an amazing visual affect through the summer but will also be very useful for use in the kitchen, give it a try.
