This vertical herb planter has slanted, removable shelves that can easily be left off for taller growing spaces. A central column of soil running down the back of the planter gives roots plenty of room to spread out and settle in. Cut the lumber yourself if you have some woodworking experience or make it easy by having the boards pre-cut at your local home improvement store. Build it in a single morning. Then, for easy harvesting, choose a spot near the house that gets at least six hours of sun per day. The end assemblies are braced A-frames made from natural cedar. Make the leg assemblies by cutting two-by-tens, lining up the ends, and attaching with screws. To brace the legs, laminate a one-by-four and a two-by-four, and attach with two-and-a-half-inch screws on this side and one-and-a-quarter-inch screws on this side.
Add a sealer to the ends to eliminate moisture wicking. Attach cleats to the inside of the legs. Attach the bottom support to the end assemblies. Fit the back slats together to create a solid panel. After fitting the back slats, measure the width of the panel to make sure you have the proper overhang on the back supports. Attach the three back supports to the back slats. Set the back assembly in place between the end assemblies and flush against the bottom support and attach. Drill drain holes in the bottom support in line with the grooves in the back slats. Attach the top shelf to the top cleats, using one-and-a-quarter-inch screws.

Place the bottom shelf on the bottom cleats and start adding the first layer of soil. Insert the next shelf on the cleats and add the next layer of soil. Continue adding shelves and soil to the rest of the planter. Adjust the shelves to allow the soil to cascade down to the level below. Prepare your herbs for planting by removing the label. Pull off the bottom of the pot to allow the roots to spread, and also make sure you remove the rim of the pot. Place your Bonnie Plants in the desired locations. Manipulate the soil on each level as you plant.
You’ll need to make several adjustments during this process. Make sure the soil continues to cascade down until it’s set in place. Place two to three plants on each level for best results. Water the base of the plants thoroughly, making sure to limit the amount of water that falls directly on the leaves of the plants. And you’re done!
