Editable Container Garden Tips
For seasoned gardeners and cooks who already know which herbs to grow, that may be all the information they need. However, there are some tricks to growing herbs together in one pot.
- You want to make sure the herbs you plant won’t compete with each other. One of our favorite starter herbs is mint. In this situation, growing all your herbs together with mint is a bad choice. Mint is easy to grow and almost impossible to kill, but it will also take over the container.
- Pick easy-to-grow herbs that you love. For some suggestions on what to grow, check out our article called 7 Must Grow Herbs for Beginner Gardeners.
- You will notice that mint made this list in the article, but you’ll also see basil, thyme, lavender, rosemary, parsley and sage. The article also provides information on growing each of those herbs.
Another easy way to grow an edible container garden is to grow herbs in a mason jar. For information on how to use mason jars to do this, please visit, How to Grow Herbs in Mason Jars.
