Herbs at the Ready

Container gardening can give you fresh herbs, such as parsley, rosemary, tarragon, and basil, at your fingertips.

Here are some tips for a successful container herb garden:

  • Use soilless potting mixes.
  • Check soil frequently to see if the plants need water.
  • Position the container so it will receive at least six hours of direct sunlight.
  • Rotate your containers every few days to ensure the entire plant receives light.
  • Do not harvest more than one-third of your plant at one time.
  • Use 1 inch of mulch on top of the soil to help conserve moisture.
