Replanting Flowers & Herbs with Ecoscraps

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Ecoscraps and I received a stipend to complete this project.


Every year I get the itch to plant. I love gardening and since most of what I plant are herbs and veggies I use when cooking,  I try to ensure what I use to grow my flowers, fruits, vegetables, and herbs are organic and safe. I also try to use as many things I have around the house as possible and often repurpose my serving bowls and things like that for use as planters. This year I went with a new color scheme outdoors and had an old aqua colored popcorn bowl that matched perfectly, so I decided to utilize it to plant some fresh basil and thyme.

Replanting Flowers and Herbs

  • Find an old bowl to use as a planter and drill a hole in the bottom about the size of a penny.
  • Line the bottom of the bowl with a few rocks (this helps with the drainage).
  • Put a small layer of Ecoscraps Natural and Organic Moist Garden Soil on the bottom to cover rocks.
  • Take the plants you are replanting out of their original pots and gently tap roots to loosen and place in the planter.
  • Keep adding plants until you have all that you want with about a 2-3 inch radius around so they are not touching.
  • Fill between plants with Ecoscraps Natural and Organic Moist Garden Soil, with a small amount of Ecoscraps Natural and Organic Tomato, Herb & Vegetable Plant Food mixed in (as per instructions on container).


Planting Herbs (1 of 3)

I used Ecoscraps this year for all my replanting and had great results. It was conveniently located in the garden section of my local Walmart and I could even order online and pick it up.

The above video is a great example as to why we used Ecoscraps this year. If you are going to eat from your garden, doesn’t it make sense to eat things grown in soil made from recycled food waste and organic garden soil? Not only that but in the United States, we waste 40% of the food produced. That is enough to fill the Rose Bowl every day. It sits in landfills producing methane, which is 20X more harmful than CO2. I rather not contribute to that statistic if I can help it.

Since 2010, EcoScraps has been working to be a part of the solution by reusing this waste and keeping it out of the landfills. We want to make sustainability mainstream.

Planting Herbs (2 of 3)

You can make a significant difference in the food waste crisis by changing shopping habits. Bagged salad, for instance, is one of the #1 foods wasted. Consider buying bagged salads only on the days you plan to use them. Better yet, grow your own vegetables and replant your herbs when they start outgrowing their pots to ensure a long life. I believe we should grow #GardensNotLandfills
