How to Make a Mint Tin Garden

Emily Murphy

It’s easy to have a garden in the smallest of spaces when it’s grown in a tin. And why not a mint tin?

If you’re like me, you thrive being out in the garden — surrounded in green, getting your hands dirty and growing what you love. The next best thing is bringing the garden inside, especially if you’re short on space or looking for some apartment therapy. A tin like this makes it possible. Not only is it simple to convert into a planter, it’s inexpensive and you’ll feel doubly good giving new life to something that would otherwise be tossed out.
