This compact kitchen herb garden ensures that all the fresh seasonings you need for a savory Italian dinner are just a snip away. Six hours of sunlight a day and minimal care are all these hardy plants require to provide tasty herbs year round.

Print then cut out the plant labels and tie each around its respective can with twine or string. Finally, slide the printed greeting through the tines of an old fork.
