Hello weddingbees! I want to have herb centerpieces for my wedding…just a galvanized pail with 2 or 3 small herb plants in each. has anyone done this? i’m trying to figure out the easiest and most cost effective way to go about getting these herbs. the wedding is late september so growing them from scratch is out of the question (plus i’m a plant-killer. sad but true). we’re looking at about 16 tables… any suggestions would be VERY helpful!!

Can you see what local nurserys have left some grocery stores also sell herb plants.

Try Russells in Sudbury. They have a large selection of plants.

You can buy small plants if they are available for fall planting, or break up larger perennial herbs like rosemary, lavender etc into smaller pieces. Talk to the people at the garden center. they are the experts and will be gald to help you.

Nurseries, even places like Home Depot should have herbs. Also, with the right kind of pail, you could probably just put the plant, plastic container and all, in the pail, which will make it easy to replant for your guests.
Btw, just wanted to say I LOVE the idea of herb centerpieces! That’ll look lovely!

@heidilyn22: That sounds beautiful! You could buy lavender and rosemary plants at Home Depot or Lowes a couple weeks before the wedding, those are pretty sturdy plants that will just need a little water. They’re also pretty big even as starters, so you may only need one per table!
