Mediterranean Herb Pot Idea



An interesting and creative idea for your garden is to plant herb in containers that have a distinct Mediterranean style instead of ordinary plant pots. Italian tomato paste, sauce, puree, whole and crushed tomato cans make great small to medium sized pots. For larger pots you can use Greek and Italian olive oil cans. They can be found in supermarkets and specialty stores.

Another good idea is to use cans of stuffed grape leaves, a Mediterranean specialty. These cans also come in different sizes. You can find the smaller ones in regular supermarkets, but Greek specialty food stores carry larger sizes.



A collection of these various colorful cans in their different sizes make a really creative and attractive Mediterranean herb garden. And they don’t even require that much space which is great if you don’t have a large backyard. The cans can be arranged on patios, balconies, and even window sills for a charming little Mediterranean flavored garden. Even with limited space, I had a cute little arrangement of Mint, Oregano, Basil, and Rosemary in an assortment of stuffed grape leaf cans and tomato paste cans on my window sill in my apartment in New York. Mediterranean herbs are both fragrant and delicious. They give wonderful flavor to sauces, marinades, salads, fish, poultry, pastas, etc., and can even be used to flavor butter, oil, vinegar, teas, and other beverages. Some of the most popular Mediterranean herbs are Thyme, Basil, Oregano, Bay Leaf, Rosemary, Lavender, Sage, Marjoram, Parsley, and Mint. I planted Oregano in my crushed tomatoes can in the photo above.

To use them, empty out the contents, remove the tops with a can opener and wash them out. Punch drainage holes on the bottom with nails and a hammer and put in your soil just as you would a regular plant pot. You can apply clear varnish to the outside of the cans to prevent them from rusting and also to protect the pretty and colorful can labels. Be very careful of the sharp edges after you remove the top of the cans, especially when you’re washing them out and also planting your herbs. For protection, you can try putting heavy duty masking tape on the inside edges of the cans to cover those sharp tin edges.
