CRAFTING: The other fun use for your herbs!

You may not think about ordering plants that could provide cuttings for wreaths or flower arrangements, but using fresh or dried herbs this way is a lot of fun. In an afternoon, you can create herbal art that can grace a wedding table or a country picnic table. Need something beautiful for your bathroom that also smells great? Make a wreath for the wall or a floral arrangement for the counter.

When considering a plant to use for drying, there are a couple of questions to ask. What color will these leaves and flowers be when they dry. How long will they hold their color? How easy are they to work with in both their fresh and dried state? When is it best to pick their flowers or leaves for the best result?

We created two Herb Garden Six Packs that answer these questions and give you a place to start. Our Zone 5 -11 Crafter's Herb Garden is for those in colder climates but can also be grown by those in warmer climates. Our Zone 8-11 Crafter's Herb Garden was created for those gardeners in warmer areas.


Zones are one of the most misunderstood aspects of gardening. Our page on understanding zones will help you pick the right plants for your garden.
