Planting inside…glass


CELIA BEDILIA DESIGNS

I love planting inside gardens, even in the summer. I like to find ways to reuse items in my home. Today I am using mason jars. As you know if you are a loyal reader (thank you if you are a loyal reader), I love mason jars. You can plant in almost anything so be creative and have fun!

Plants in Mason Jars

You need

  • 1 ½ cup Mason Jars
  • Potting Soil
  • Small plants-herbs work very well
  • Sheet Moss
  • Pea gravel

Step One: Add a layer of pea gravel to the bottom of the jar

Step Two: Line the Jar with moss

Step Three: Add potting soil (I like miracle grow)

Step Four: Add plant and top with soil and a little moss

TIP: Moss hold moisture and helps plants from drying out.
