Growing up is he best thing you can do for your herbs, that's why this project is a winner. It saved your delicate plants from garden pests and in some cases house pets but it always works and you use very little pesticide on them. Try this eco friendly project with just a hanging shoe rack and your garden soil.

Forget wild animals I am trying to save my herbs from my cat. I live in an apartment on the 2nd floor but I love my fresh herbs. I have to put them somewhere where the cat won't dig in the pots! This is a great idea and exactly what I was looking for. I have the perfect place for it on the balcony outside where there is a wall.

What a great idea and so cheap and easy. I love this Grow Up Herb garden for my daughter-in-law and son who live in an apartment and she wants she was just talking about growing some on her balcony but he dog loves to dig in dirt but she still wanted to try. Now I can tell her about this wonderful way to hang it on the wall with a hanging shoe rack. She will be super excited and I love that you can take the herbs out in winter. I am going to hang some myself and bring them in and maybe keep them hanging on shoe rack and put somewhere inside. Great idea. Thanks. Anyone try yet?
