all you need is an empty can, an old towel, and some twine or string. for herbs i'm using a very large aluminum can. when i start planting tomatoes, peppers, and strawberries, i'm planning on using paint cans.
cut a small hole in a piece of old towel. this hole's size is dependent on what kind of plant you're using, because the leaves/flowers/fruits need to be pulled through the hole. the towel is going to keep the soil from spilling out from the can. i just pressed the towel into the bottom but you could probably glue it in if you're worried about it moving. once the plant is pulled through the towel at the bottom of the can, pat down the soil so it's nice and firm. string your twine through the holes in the top and hang!
