Herbs in Containers

Medicinal and culinary herbs almost seem to have been designed to grow in containers, and the sheer range of pots, troughs, and recycled artifacts that can be successfully used is limited only by your imagination.

Single Pot of Lavender

Lavenders can thrive in pots, especially the slightly more fickle Lavandula stoechas and L. pedunculata cultivars. The container needs to be at least 12 in (30 cm) deep and wide enough to accommodate the growing plant. Thin metal and plastic pots are easy to handle and can look fantastic in their myriad colors, but offer little protection to roots from freezing weather. Terracotta and wood afford more insulation, but are more prone to water damage.
