Know Your Herbs
Before you begin, learn the growing requirements for the herbs you've selected. We've chosen plants that can be placed relatively close together for this small herb garden. Species that will grow tall can be placed in the back of the container. Also, decide where you'll place the container — most herbs grow well in full sun to partial shade.
Select a Container and Provide Drainage
Based on the number of herbs you want to include in the container and the spacing required, determine the size of the garden's container. The container needs to have drainage so water won't collect in the base. This project uses an artificial conch shell and drilled drainage holes in the bottom.
Add Potting Soil
