Planting inside…glass

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!

Here are some herbs in mason jars. I just love this look!

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.

Mathra like bottles too here are more plants in bottles

Martha Stewart Living, June 2012

It’s easy to see why the popularity of succulents has skyrocketed in recent years. The plants look modern and require little maintenance — just several hours of sun and not too much water. To showcase their beauty at home, go beyond the terra-cotta pot with this display idea.

Sprinkle an inch of cactus soil in a clean glass bottle. Divide the succulents into single-stem plantlets, each with roots. Using chopsticks, place the plantlets in the bottle one at a time. Use the chopsticks again to nestle each plantlet into the soil. Once the plants are situated, keep them indoors and out of direct sunlight. These desert plants require only a drop of water every two weeks or so.

You can also do plants under glass!!

Great idea and easy to do. Orchid, moss, bark and cool branches!

If you do not have a green thumb have your local florist put one together for you!!!!
