  • 3. Next, upturn a small pot and sit it in the centre of the medium pot. Fill the medium pot with potting mix.

  • 4. Create the top layer. Sit the small pot, the right way up, on top of the upturned small pot. Fill the top pot with potting mix.

  • 5. Plant a mix of herb seedlings in the different layers. If planting mint, plant this in the small pot at the top so that it doesn’t take over the other plants.

  • 5. Write the herb names on the plant labels and add to the tower.
