Most herb plants stay small and compact, making them the perfect choice for a potted garden. Making a herb potted garden can be a much more convenient and easier way to grow herbs than having a garden in your yard. Your plants can grow year round, as they are portable and can be moved into a heated building when the weather turns cold. The soil can be monitored and controlled easily and a simple flip of a light switch is a better solution than hoping the sun comes out. Sometimes growing herbs in pots can be difficult because pots do not offer the same moisture control and necessary nutrients as outdoor soil does. Many herbs do fine in pots with some extra attention from the grower. These hearty herbs include basil, dill, mint, sage, and lavender.
When making a herb potted garden you do not have to keep them indoors. It is possible to grow your herbs inside or outside. Either way you choose, you need to know the amount of sun that each plant should have. There are herbs that like full sun, while others grow well when placed in partially shaded areas. Make proper preparations to the soil and make sure the amount of moisture is sufficient.
