Fresh herbs make all the difference when cooking at home, don’t you think? In our home we typically grow mint, basil, rosemary, and thyme, but this year we want to up our herb garden game by adding oregano and parsley. All about those herbs, bout those herbs. 😉 We got so ambitious that we ran out of space in our herb garden, which lead to me creating this Hanging Herb Garden Basket free crochet pattern!

If you’ve looked through the food section of Heart Hook Home, you’ll know that my husband Paul does 99.9% of the cooking in our home. He loves to cook from scratch using fresh ingredients and fresh herbs, and I love to let him. Ha!

Classic Caprese Salad with Balsamic Glaze

Paul tends to use a lot of mint and basil; mint for our Fattousch salad recipe and the occasional Mojito, and basil for our Caprese salad recipe (using homegrown tomatoes, of course!) and our Fried Eggplant recipe. Annnnd, now I’m hungry.

Make as many of these hanging baskets as you like, I did three for our purposes and I probably wouldn’t do many more than that for hanging purposes. If you need more, consider using two rods.

What do you think about making one to hang in the bedroom filled with lavender? I wonder if that would work? I think I might give that a shot!

Weave in ends and tuck any leftover ends inside basket.


Cut dowel rod to length. I did about 28″ for my three baskets. Take a separate piece of t-shirt yarn and wrap it around the end a few times to form a “stopper”. Tie a knot and trim excess fabric. Insert the cut-to-length dowel rod into the loops formed on the back of the baskets.

Hang hooks using wall mollies to provide additional support. Hang dowel rod with baskets empty before inserting the mason jars as the wall will keep them upright.

Now just add your herb-filled mason jars and you are ready to grow!

Aren’t these just great?!

Hang in a well-lit area, or outside even. Remember to use a dowel rod as thick as will fit your hooks to offer the most support.

May your herb garden supply you with many, many herbs!

  1. Ashley. I love this and all your patterns. However, I am really a novice and need a printed copy. I follow you on my phone and it is very difficult to read instruction. Please tell me how I can get written instructions for these wonderful little planters.

  6. Love it! We are packing up to move, and I've got some T-shirts that I wasn't sure whether they're worth the box space .... you've delighted me with this idea, so I'll use the T-shirts as packing material, then have a fun project in my new home! Thanks!
