17 handmade Etsy herb planters for spring
Spring’s abundance of fresh farmers market veggies make having fresh herbs to go along with them a must. And there’s no better way to indulge in fresh herbs than growing them yourself. But the planters you can buy at the big-box stores really just aren’t that cute — does terra cotta go with anything that isn’t Southwest decor? Enter Etsy, where the craftspeople of the world make sure the rest of us have exactly what our craft-inept (or maybe just very busy) hands can’t make.
The herb planters available on Etsy come in a variety of aesthetics and at multiple price points, so you’re all but guaranteed to find the perfect planter for your style at a price you can afford. We’ve rounded up a handful of our favorites to get your search started, whether you’re looking for minimalist or farmhouse chic.
