She has some great tips, such as begin planning your herb garden by seeing what herbs are in your kitchen that you actually use on a regular basis. She shows basil, thyme, spearmint, rosemary, oregano, and tarragon plants. You can plant herbs in containers, raised beds, r any corner of your garden as long as the herbs have at least half a day of sun.

How to Plant a Potted Herb Garden

Susan Doherty from Six Minute Style shows how to plant a potted herb garden. First she says to select a pot that is big enough to accommodate all that you want to plant, and be sure it has adequate drainage. If it does not, you can always drill one or more holes in the bottom. You can cover the hole(s) with newspaper to prevent any of your soil from washing out. You want your soil to not be too heavy, and have good drainage. Remember that your herbs will need about five hours of sun a day, so consider this when locating your pot. Next, she shows how to take your plants and arrange them in the pot before planting them to be sure you have things laid out as you want. Be sure to put bigger plants in the center. She plants a number of herbs in one pot including rosemary, cilantro, dill, chives, oregano, basil, sage, thyme, and tarragon.
