Why not grow an at-home herb garden? These five tools make it easy

There’s no fresher finishing touch than herbs you’ve grown right at home, and with the right tools, nurturing and preparing them couldn’t be easier. Here are some useful finds to make the most of your garden.

For year-round growing

Pop a plant pod, which contains soil, seeds and nutrients, in this garden, and watch your herbs come to life — automated water and lighting make this nearly effortless. The hardest part may be cherry-picking from the 50-plus plants available, like marjoram, lavender and curly parsley.

For custom labelling

If you have a more spacious garden, these alder wood markers can help you differentiate, say, your basil from oregano at a glance. Each stake has two lines of text you can personalize, so you can ID each herb and add your own name, too.
