This video we are going to show how we build this DIY Vertical Herb Garden Planter. I am always trying to expand Mrs. Naked Garden Herb Garden. We have some extra wood and materials that we are trying to get rid of so I was searching for ideas and simple DIYs that we can incorporate with our garden.

This garden ladder planter allows us to grow up and in tight spaces. If you have some small space that you would like to have a garden in, this garden shelf ladder would be perfect for you.

Enjoy fresh herbs any time with this easy DIY! Use a shadow box to create a vertical herb garden that you can keep on your kitchen countertop.

Get step-by-step instructions:


shadow box
wooden frame
chalk paint + brush
safety gloves
chicken wire
staple gun + staples
industrial strength adhesive
coco sheet
chalk marker


1. To begin the process of creating a vertical frame garden, remove the backing of a shadow box as well as the front glass piece. Next, prep a simple wooden frame by covering it in a layer of chalkboard paint. Cover the entire surface of the frame, and allow the paint to dry completely. You may also wish to cover the frame in a waterproof sealant.

2. Cut a piece of chicken wire to fit to the back of the frame. Attach with staples.

3. Line the edge of the shadow box with a tight bead of industrial strength adhesive. Working quickly, set the frame over the top of the shadow box, using the adhesive to secure the pieces tightly together. Add a book or to weigh it down, and let the adhesive dry overnight.

4. Now it is time to prep the box for the herbs. Flip the box over, and layer in moss until the chicken wire is covered entirely. Press the moss down into the box to pack it tightly together. The next step is to add potting soil. Pack the soil tightly against the mossy layer. Lastly, add a coco sheet, and secure the contents into the box by adding a second piece of chicken wire, stapling it to the shadow box frame.

5. Time to add the plants! Using wire cutters, snip the chicken wire around where the plants will be placed to allow enough space for the plants to breathe and grow. Fold back any cut wire and add the desire herbs. Enjoy your vertical garden even more by labeling the plants using a chalk marker.

6. To water, wait till the soil feels dry to the touch, and simply place under the sink for a light drizzle.
