Your herb garden pots can be a large or small container garden. You can even grow them inside if you have a window garden. There are many kinds of pots that are suitable for herb gardening. Some of the most popular containers are: crock pots, small ceramic dishes, glass jars and porcelain pots. Before deciding on which pot to buy, make sure you consider where it will be used and if you plan to plant several herbs together. You do not want to spend money on pots that are too small or big for your garden.
If you wish to make your container herb gardening special, try and get an antique Victorian pot. The one illustrated right behind is a great example, but there are other less expensive and better pots available. If your creativity does not stretch that far, take a few pictures of various types of pots and get your friends’ opinions. I am sure they will all have different ideas about what type of potting soil would be best for growing herbs inside.
When shopping for herb garden pots online, the first thing you should look for is a good design. Just because the box is from a reputable manufacturer does not necessarily mean it’s quality will be high. Take into consideration the size of the container, as well as how many plants you plan to have. For the larger plants, look for large pots that are made from heavy-duty plastic, glass or ceramic materials.
One important thing to remember is that the herbs need plenty of sunlight in order to grow properly. Many people believe herb garden pots are more attractive in the summer months, but this is simply not true. A good rule of thumb is to think about where you live when deciding on a location for your pots. In the southern states, herbs like basil and Rosemary can thrive in temperatures of nearly ninety degrees. But herbs such as parsley and tarragon will only grow well in areas where the temperatures are cooler, or a bit higher.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that herbs will thrive both indoors and out. If you live in an area with a lot of sun, you should consider planting herbs in pots that are made of heavy-duty glass or ceramic materials. Heavy-duty containers will also help protect your plants from frost. But if you live in an area with little sunshine, you may want to choose a lightweight planting container. This way your plants will enjoy a nice even distribution of sunlight throughout the day.
The climate where you live is another important factor to consider when choosing containers for growing herbs. Some herbs do better in southern climates, while others prefer to grow in more northern areas. Some types of herbs only bloom during certain times of the year. If you have any doubts about which type of container would best suit your needs, consult a local gardening store. They will be able to assist you in choosing containers that will enable you to grow the type of herb that you wish to cultivate. Some popular choices include herb garden pots that are round, square, conical or vase-shaped.
When choosing a planter for growing herbs, it is important to choose one that will allow air circulation around your plant. Most herb garden planters are rectangular and come with at least two tiers. These larger planters can either be placed on a stand or directly on your windowsill. You can find a great selection of unique containers at most garden centers and discount retailers.
In this economy, there is no need to spend a lot of money on new pots for your garden. Instead, use what you already have in your home and give your plants a much needed overhaul. By going with new pots and growing herb plants in clay pots, you are giving yourself an inexpensive way to spruce up your yard while receiving many health benefits in the process. This is especially helpful if you live in a temperate zone where the climate is often unpredictable and warm for extended periods of time. Pots are also much easier to clean when the dirt is so much dust and debris free.
