When I lived in MN I built an indoor herb wall with a large frame and a felt and soft wire back. It was really nice because in the depths of the Winter That Does Not End™ I always had fresh herbs.
Now that I'm in Chicago I have much less space to do this and was looking at this one. Do you think that would be appropriate for a small apartment? If so, what top six herbs would you suggest I put in?Answer Question

Love it! The only thing is there are no drainage holes so you may get root rot. Maybe use terracotta pots & at the bottom of the whole thing add like an aluminum pan to catch the drippings?? Great idea though! I love to grow herbs. Last year we planted parsley seeds in a pot outside & it's now perennial. BUT!!! It attracted Swallowtail Butterflies & we had tons of huge caterpillars. My Son collected them & put them in bug holders & when they turned into butterflies he released them. BTW, have you grown lemon balm? It's delish in tea & grows like a week, you can't kill it! Enjoy!
