Give old Kilner® Jars a new purpose by using them as herb pots. They will look great in your kitchen and will be within easy reach when cooking.
You will need:
- Kilner® 0.5 Litre Preserve Jars
- Your choice of herb plants
Remove the lid from the jar and place some small stones at the base of your jar to help with drainage.
Fill the jar half way with compost/ potting mix then fit the screw band back on the jar.
Carefully place your herb plant in the jar and surround with more compost.
Water your herb plant so that the compost is damp but not saturated.
Tie some raffia, brown string or ribbon around the neck of the jar for decoration and add a label, we used the Kilner® Chalk Labelling Set.
Place it in a sunny spot near a window.
