WATCH: How to make a vertical herb garden with a timber pallet

    Brought to you in association with the Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board (LOETB)

    Who doesn’t like the idea of at least growing some of your own food in your own garden? What you’re able to grow will depend on your gardening skills and the time you have available?

    But if you’re looking at getting started one of the easiest things to do is grow some lettuce or some herbs like mint, basil or parsley. 

    And using a pallet you can easily make a vertical herb garden. 

    Shane Dooley, one of the woodwork teachers with the Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board, explained in a recent tutorial video how to make one. 

    And all you needed was a pallet, a nail bar, screwdriver and screws, hammer and nails, a staple gun and some old fertiliser bags. 

    He also recommends painting the pallet and using some blackboard paint on a small part of the front where you can write what is sowed in each section.
