Arrange and Plant

Arrange the plants in a pleasing composition according to their spacing requirements — take into consideration their mature size. Place taller plants in the back and shorter varieties in the front.

Top Off the Container

After all the herbs are in place, fill the rest of the container with potting soil to about an inch below the rim.

Pack Soil

Pack down the potting soil with the back of the trowel or your fingers.
