Grow Herbs In Containers
Most herbs are grown for their foliage, but many have beautiful blooms as well. When planted in drifts, either alone or in combination with other plants, they make a powerful seasonal statement.
Herbs with bold color patterns or prolific blooms, like purple sage, lavenders or golden oregano, mix well with traditional perennials. In this setting Russian sage offers color, texture and aroma that spices up the conventional perennial mix.
Herbs mix well with vegetables and small fruit plantings. For small spaces, this strategy will boost production in terms of variety and volume.
