DIY Cat Herb Garden

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
A month or two back, one of my friends shared a video of a DIY cat herb garden and she said it reminded her of me. I’m sure that’s not because we have four cats and I love herb gardens or anything Recently, I set out to create my own version of the DIY cat herb garden and today I’m going to share the full shopping list and steps to create your own treat for your furry felines!

Our cats literally beg to go outside on a daily basis during the warmer months. However, since they are exclusively indoor cats, we only let them out occasionally for a few minutes at a time with full supervision. The plan is to leave the DIY cat herb garden on our back patio table, and we’ll bring them out to it as a treat when we let them outside.
This is a quick project that your cats will be sure to enjoy!

DIY Cat Herb Garden – Supply List

Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro planting mix. You can find even more details about the product in this post. I love that you can order it online (it’s only available on Amazon) and it will ship right to your door because it is so lightweight! No more messy, muddy cars!
Planter. Choose your size depending on your needs. I didn’t want our cats to tip over a tall planter so I went with a bowl-shaped planter.
Gardening Gloves
A small shovel
Herbs safe for cat ingestion. You may want to double-check this information with your vet to ensure your cat will not be adversely impacted by any of these herbs. I selected the following herbs based on some research I did:
Lemongrass. Be sure to use the actual grass (not the essential oil, as it can be toxic). Lemongrass has similar effects to catnip on cats
Catmint – aphrodisiac-like qualities
Catnip – stress reliever
Rosemary – natural flea repellent
Mint – helps with digestive trouble
Thyme – soothing effects

DIY Cat Herb Garden – The Assembly Steps
Before I started the process, I wanted to ensure my cats seemed at least somewhat interested in the herbs I selected. Lets just say it was apparent rather quickly that it wouldn’t be an issue. Wear your gardening gloves for the remainder of the tutorial to keep your hands clean!

I first filled my planter bowl about one third of the way with the soil mix.

Next, start adding water to the soil mix. I would a little at a time, stir with the small shovel, and then continue adding more.

It’s much like making batter or dough – you can actually just tell when you’ve added the right amount. There is a lot of dry spots if you need more water and it gets really soupy if you add too much. At one point, I added a bit too much water, so then I just sprinkled a little more soil mix back in the bowl and it was good to go!
Here’s how the mix looked when I felt it was the right consistency. Notice how much it grew as well! I absolutely love this feature ...
