grow your herbs indoors


to create, use a 16 inch living wreath form and select your herbs. it's a good idea to choose low-growing varieties to help keep the wreaths form. get your glue gun out to fill in empty spaces with dried moss.  
remove your herbs from their pots and place the root balls together inside the shell. use preserved moss to to cover the soil and help retain moisture. an easy to trick to tell if your plants need water, if the tips of your oregano plant are starting to droop, it's time to water. another tip, plant oregano so you know when it is time to water. 

 succulents like hens and chicks make good companions to herbs because they are drought tolerant and sun loving
