Hang up herbs

Mark Rayner makes a simple wall planter for herbs and other plants.

You will need: A piece of 22mm treated plywood, four terracotta pots, four Leylandlatch green pot hangers, 60mm stainless steel screws, saw, tape measure, pencil, set square, sandpaper, paintbrush, screwdriver, good quality potting mix and four herb plants. Resene Terracotta Sealer, Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat, Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Limerick and Resene Moxie.

Another idea: Fix a horizontal strip of treated plywood to the outside of a kitchen windowsill and hang a row of terracotta pots from it to create an accessible herb bed.
