Container Herb Garden Is Versatile, Adaptable, and Mobile - part 1

A container herb garden, which is simply growing herbs in pots or containers, is one of the most versatile forms of gardening due to the adaptability of growing herbs in pots or containers or even on a trellis and the fact that they are mobile. Almost all plants can be grown in containers or pots. Your herb plants will thrive as your container herb garden can be placed where the growing conditions are most advantageous for the herbs being grown. During inclement weather the containers can be moved to a protected area or indoors.

A Container Herb garden is perfect for the person with limited space and also for anyone who wants to dress up an area whether for convenience such as culinary herbs in containers or to add value to the landscape as ornamental and aromatic herbs in containers. My Mother is one of the most creative gardeners I know. No one tops Mom when it comes to her creativity with her container herb garden. She is always adding to or removing from the containers and moving them around to showcase different ones and to create the perfect vignette for the landscape. If she doesn't like how one herb is performing with the others or would like a different combination, the herbs are easily taken out of one container and planted in another container. When the container is initially planted using the correct method it is easy to make changes to it later. Mom has a foolproof method that is easy to follow. Here we will cover planting several herbs in one container. Your container herb garden can consist of one container of herbs or several containers.
