We’re constantly inspired by the ingenuity (and true eco-love) of our beloved Brodo fam. You’ve composted our green cell foam insulation. Recycled our shipping boxes. And now, you’ve figured out a way to repurpose our broth containers, too.

We’ve seen you start mini-gardens in these containers, so we decided to share some of our very own tips for at-home planting.

Here are three tips for growing a garden using Brodo containers.

Focus on herbs.

Thyme, rosemary and basil can each be grown on a windowsill, provided they maintain access to sunlight.

And bonus? The final products can be added straight into a hot cup of Brodo.

We love to squeeze a quarter of a lemon into a mug of hearth broth, and then infuse the mug with a sprig of rosemary.

Combat dry air.

Fill a low saucer with rocks or pebbles, then cover with water. Place your Brodo container near the pebble saucer, in order to increase humidity near your plants.

Move, move, move!

Plants: they’re just like us. They thrive when they can move around.

Try moving your plants’ locations from time to time to vary their exposure to sunlight and warmth.
