Herb Planter Cards

Handmade Herb Planter Cards

A handmade card is a simple way to let someone know you care for them.  

These herb planter cards are a thoughtful idea – especially if your recipient loves herbs or enjoys a spot of gardening.  

You can tailor these cards to your recipient. Maybe they love to cook? Add sage or parsley as your herb in this planter card.  

Or if your recipient is not well, you could add rosemary, thyme or mint. These herbs are used in natural medicine to help with airways if one has a cold. Mint is sometimes used to help with an upset stomach. Write “Get Well” on the planter pot as a thoughtful ‘get better soon’ card.  

Use whatever herbs you have growing in the backyard. If you don’t have herbs, you could also use flowers or other greenery like gum leaves.
