Thyme To Sit Around
Flea markets and yard sales are good places to find old, inexpensive chairs. If the finish is not to your liking, paint the chair to complement the garden. Follow these steps to create an unusual thyme garden.
- Step 1: Remove the seat from the chair if it's still attached. Using wire cutters, cut chicken wire several inches larger than the seat's frame. Staple the wire's edges to the chair, allowing excess wire to sag inside the seat.
- Step 2: Cover wire with sheet moss, and fill the planting area with moist potting soil. Use a high-quality product that drains well; if you're working in a small space, choose a soil that will help retain moisture.
- Step 3: Plant herbs, placing some near the edges so foliage will tumble over the sides. Water gently, and feed every other week with a water-soluble, well-balanced fertilizer.
