Then I saw these plant pots at IKEA and I came up with a plan.
I bought some cilantro, dill and basil to start off. In retrospect, I should have researched my herbs first to make sure they all liked the same thing. Cilantro, I found out after it was planted, enjoys less sun than the dill and bason but hopefully it will be OK.
Because, I believe, the box is made for potted plants and not actually planting plants I got rid of the metal pan that came with it and used my drill attachment to make drainage holes in the bottom of the box.
I also had fun with the sale IKEA was having on hanging pots and their selection of succulent plants!
