I hope you can agree with me when i say:

 Gardening is that art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas. 

With that being said, pots can make or break your herb plantation. The ONE common problem people undergo is, not being able to pick the right pot for the right herb. Pots come in different styles, shapes and functions. Hence, looking for the best type of pot in accordance with your weather, placement and environment of the pot location is a time consuming task.

And it’s in the light of the problem above, that we have taken the responsibility on ourselves. After hours of research and time spent on contemplation, I have compiled for you a list of the Best most ideal pots for herbs that you can buy online. Furthermore, I have also included a guide on, “How to Grow Herbs at Home” and  “Tips on Growing Herbs” for additional help.

Growing herbs in the comfort of your home can be the perfect at-home project for you! They are cheap to grow, and you can grow everything under your supervision and organically. So we are here to help you get your herb garden started at home. Lets get gardening!:

Step 1: Pick some Pots

Pick a container that fits the size of the herbs that you will grow. With the help of our list, choose the best pot for your herb and something bigger. So your herbs have plenty of excess space to grow. A cramped smaller planter will result in your herbs to become root bound and hamper their nutritional value or even kill them.

Tips on Growing Herbs:

Here are some common problems to avoid while growing your herbs:

  • Make sure your pots have plenty of sunlight – choose herbs accordingly. If you’re doing it for an indoor herb plant, pick a herb that doesn’t require too much sunlight. And vice versa
  • Be mindful for pests
  • Mint herbs grow like crazy! – So make sure it has a pot all to itself, or a huge planter for it to freely grow. And ensure you’re harvesting it often.
  • Water enough but not too much- each herb has their own water and care schedule. Make sure you do your research before watering the plants. This could prevent overwatering and underwatering
  • Pick the correct soil!

 Now that you basically have the instructional manual to everything you need for your first herb garden, what are you waiting for? Now all you have to do is plant and don’t forget to eat what you grow. Now lets get gardening!
