Herbs aren’t particularly fussy plants meaning they will grow in almost any type of pot or planter. However, herb planters are designed for optimum growth.
Ideally, a herb planter should be a minimum of six inches in diameter to allow a single herb plant to spread. Our herb planters range from single pots of such size, to much larger planters designed to accommodate multiple herbs.
Do herb planters need drainage holes?
Drainage is an essential part of successfully growing herbs. All herbs can suffer from root problems such as rot if not properly trained. Herbs require fast-draining soil that feels a little coarse to the touch – this means that plenty of air can get to the roots as well as water. Our herb planters have drainage holes to allow your herbs to thrive.
What is the easiest herb to grow in a planter?
Herbs of any kind can be grown in a herb planter, but if you’re just starting out you may be wondering which are the easiest herbs to grow. Many of these herbs are popular kitchen ingredients, making them a practical choice too.
