Contemporary Pots

Modern pots are very effective and can also be used to simply conceal the plastic pot the herb is growing in. These pots may not have adequate drainage holes, so take care in wet weather or when watering to avoid drowning the plant. In midsummer, temperatures can rise substantially and shiny metallic or plastic pots can heat up sufficiently to cook the roots, so put them where they are not exposed to the midday sun.
