What Do I Plant In My Herb Pot

I’ve become quite an expert in container gardening in the past few years.

I hope to have an actual outdoor garden space to cultivate soon but, until I do, I’ll be using a-lotta’ terracotta for my plantings. This year my Mom and I planted an herb pot (while my daughter was running around the backyard with the dogs) using a selection of herbs from the local nursery. Here is what we planted:

Strawberry Pot

(the funny looking pot with holes in the side):

  • Basil
  • Oregano (regular)
  • Oregano (Hot & Spicy)
  • Thyme
  • Lemon Thyme
  • Sage
  • Apple Mint
  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Tarragon
     

These are all herbs that are easy to care for and will thrive all summer with moderate light and heat. They will need to be watered once a day, unless it rains, and occasionally I’ll pick of dead leaves. But, best of all, I’ll have a thriving pot of herbs to pull from all summer long!
