City living means tight quarters and tiny-to-tinier outdoor access. If maximizing your studio apartment decor is at the top of your to-do list alongside keeping your green thumb alive, then it’s time to break out your trusty old mason jars. They’ll add a bit of charm to your apartment or tiny patio. Before you just throw some herbs or succulents into them, try to think outside the jar with cool displays, bright colors and patterns. These mason jar garden ideas below will help get you started and inspire the perfect tiny garden you’ve always dreamed of.
